David Highfield Surgery: Why Is Pittsburgh Today Live Host On Hospital?
David Highfield apparently underwent surgery but fans are unaware of what actually happened to the news reporter. He was absent in ‘Pittsburgh Today Live’ and his shoes were filled by Lindsay Ward.
Everyone is quite curious to know the reason behind this. So, one of the tweets by a random someone on Twitter wishes him well for his surgery. To this Mr. Highfield, himself replied to it saying that he was grateful to have the surgery behind him.

Did David Highfield Have Any Illness?
David Highfield certainly did have an illness which is why he had to go through surgery. Nevertheless, we do not know if it was a major surgery or a minor one Hence, it is quite difficult to say that he had an illness.
Considering his age, he might have health issues but nothing as such is known. He might be ill or perfectly healthy, his supporters must wait a little longer to find out the truth. We hope all is well with the journalist and he only had to go through a minor surgery with no health problems.
David Highfield Partner Or Wife
David Highfield’s partner is Gary and does not have a wife. Although people are searching for his wife and married life, the KDKA reporter is gay and is happily married to his husband.
The happy couple is living in Lawrenceville and does not seem to have children. Gary is rarely featured on his social media account other than a few times but we can see the duo much in love whenever they share a frame.
