Happy 58th Birthday Al Roker

The “Frog Days Of Summer” have been filled with celebrity birthdays, and today the man who gives America the weather every morning on NBC’s “Today”show, Al Roker is celebrating his 58th birthday. Al Roker has some ties to central, New York.

According to Wikipedia:

“Before the national recognition, Roker worked as a weather anchor for CBS affiliate WHEN-TV (now WTVH) in Syracuse, New York from 1974 until 1976, while he was still enrolled at SUNY Oswego.

From 1983 to 1996, Roker was the regular substitute for forecaster Joe Witte on the NBC News program NBC News at Sunrise, and from 1990 to 1995 filled-in for Willard Scott on the Today Show.

In 1996, Scott announced his semi-retirement from the show, and Roker received the weekday weather position on Today, where he has been since.”

SUNY Oswego also has a state-of-the-art TV facility named after Al Roker. According to oswego.edu

“WTOP Channel 10, our cable television station, houses our brand new digital Al Roker Television Studios.”

Here’s a video clip of Al Roker explaining how he got the job after Willard Scott on Today:
