After KNBC morning weathercaster Elita Loresca was caught on-air calling Al Roker a “kook” last Friday, it was only fitting that “Today” would make Los Angeles its “Pick City” during Roker’s forecast this morning.
Loresca’s “kook” comment was played up by TMZ but she and Roker quickly dismissed the incident. On Twitter, Roker wrote, “She was joking. And some mornings I am kooky. No big whoop.”
Although Roker didn’t mention the “kook” comment during his “Pick City” bit, it can be seen as a subtle nod to Loresca. And, following a technical flub with the segment this morning (intro music played and a map appeared at the top of Roker’s weather report but he didn’t end up introducing L.A. until the very end), Roker certainly acted kooky.
“You nailed that Pick City,” Wille Geist said dryly.
