Al Roker | Journalist, Weather Forecaster
The Key to Success in a Tough Industry: Hard Work and No Complaints
If you don’t know who Al Roker is, well, that’s weird. The famous weather anchor joined NBC’s Today in 1996, and has been there since. You’ve also seen him on NBC Nightly News, hosting NBC’s Celebrity Family Feud, the Macy’s Day Parade, and in his own show on The Weather Channel, Wake Up With Al.
It was fitting that our interview was initially cancelled on account of, you guessed it, the weather. Luckily hurricane Joaquin slowed down enough for America’s favorite weatherman to spare twenty minutes for us. In between weather updates, we sat in his office on the 5th floor of New York City’s iconic 30 Rockefeller Center, and discussed his amazing career.
