For the first time in 39 years, NBC “Today” weather anchor and “Wake Up with Al” co-host Al Roker overslept and missed a show.
Roker’s alarm didn’t go off, and he missed his Weather Channel program, although he made it to Studio 1A in time for “Today.” His NBC colleagues chided him on the incident, putting up a “Breaking News: Al Roker Oversleeps” banner for good measure.
Roker also tweeted about the incident:
Morning, Sleepyhead. Overslept and missed #wuwa Here on time for TODAY https://t.co/dKqmHjGGIy
