WQED producer and Pittsburgh icon Rick Sebak is still on the mend from an injury he suffered in late August. But his recovery at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital hasn’t been all bad.

During his stay at the Oakland facility he’s been brought a cornucopia of Pittsburgh’s best foods, from friends and restaurants.

Items from Prantl’s, Oakmont Bakery and Smileycookie.com have kept his sweet tooth supplied.

While food from Burgatory, Fiori’s and Andy’s Sushi Bar inside Wholey’s have also been brought to the Bethel Park native.

Sebak ruptured his quadriceps tendon and until mid to late October, he will not be able to move his leg at all to give it time to heal, according to NewsRadio 1020 KDKA.

“I’m very lucky in that I didn’t fall a great distance. I didn’t hit my head. There are no other injuries, it’s just my left leg,” Sebak told KDKA.

Sebak’s injury and recovery have pushed back the release of his next “Nebby” series show. “That Kennywood Summer” was scheduled to premier tomorrow, “but all of that has been postponed,” Sebak said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
