Millions of Americans wake up every morning and trust Al Roker to tell them what to expect when they step outside. The longtime meteorologist for NBC’s “Today Show” has become such a well know figure that he often appears as himself in guest roles in movies and television. Born in Queens, New York, Roker was initially intent on becoming a cartoonist and received degrees in both graphic design and broadcast journalism from the State University of New York at Oswego. He started his television career at stations in Cleveland and New York before joining the big leagues as the weatherman for WNBC in New York City. As Roker gained fame, he was offered a position at “Weekend Today” for NBC, where he stayed for nine years and met his wife, Deborah Roberts, also a broadcast journalist. During this time, Roker filled in for Willard Scott on “Today,” and when Scott announced his retirement in 1996, Roker was tapped to take his place. Since then, Roker has become famous for his weather reports from outside the Rockefeller Center studios where he interacts with fans. Roker also hosts “Roker on the Road” and “Tricked-Out Tailgating” for The Food Network.
