Military Service[edit]

It seems Roker served in the US Army? Does anyone have details? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:647:4800:54:A52E:9760:60D:5B7E (talk) 17:33, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Education[edit]

Seems strange there is no specific information about his education. Maybe this is because he majored in Communications and is not actually a Meteorologists at all.

Inauguration 2013[edit]

The highlights section at the end should be amended to read that he exchanged words with the president and shook hands with the vice president at the 2013 inaugural parade. This is unclear as it is written, since there was also a 2009 inaugural parade with Obama and Biden.


Untitled[edit]

Am I the only one who thinks this photo is about as ridiculous as you can get? 71.40.160.154 03:42, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

He converted to being jew right ? can someone help me out on this ? (Irishmonk)

c

suggested changes:

from "He worked in television around the Cleveland and New York areas before he became a weatherman for WNBC in New York."

to: "(new paragraph)He worked for NBC O&Os WKYC-TV, Cleveland and WRC-TV, Washington before becoming a weatherman for WNBC in New York."

from: "Roker started getting more exposure, especially when David Letterman asked him to do an elevator race with him in one episode of his talk show Late Night with David Letterman."

to: "Roker started getting national exposure on the talk show Late Night with David Letterman, which taped in the studio directly across the hall from the news studio. On one occasion Letterman challenged him to an elevator race."

Included SNL guest appearance from 2/28/06. Too much elaboration?

The info about the shows he hosts on Food Network should probably be promoted to the career section. He hosts these programs, which makes it a significant contribution. I may rewrite this when I get a chance. --Gglockner 03:45, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

I would think that this section should include a reference to Al Roker Entertainment, a media brand he is very clearly involved with. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.208.67.102 (talk) 01:40, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

God[edit]

Why does someone on Wikipedia think Al Roker is God? Is there something about him that leads them to this conclusion? --Miked84 18:57, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

He's fat again[edit]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qHvWII9KI8&eurl= for reference; I think this should be noted in the article Xizer 05:49, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Bogus info[edit]

I'm thinking this might be inappropriate...

Made a fool of himself February 11, 2007 on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, speaking of a dead Peter O'Toole and talking way too loud.

Cleaning up[edit]

I think I did the Wiki-community a great service by cleaning up this page. So much unsourced crap...for shame.

birth name?[edit]

Someone wrote here that Al's birth name is Linoleus Richards-Trajas, but I have found absoultely no source for this-only this page comes up when I Googled that name. Therefore, I deleted it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.68.54.248 (talk) 23:44, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

vandalism[edit]

bah I give up, this article is ridiculous (he ate a WHOLE PIG?). -67.171.230.129 (talk) 08:10, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Sexual Orientation?[edit]

What is his sexual orientation? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.218.232.71 (talk) 19:25, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Sunday Sunday?[edit]

Why does Al always say Sunday twice? What's it a reference to?

He is parodying the TV commercials for Monster Truck Rallys.--DCX (talk) 21:44, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Family, personal background[edit]

There is a lot of information missing and a lot of unnecessary information as well. Is this article the subject of repeated vandalism?

Why is the drunk ewok incident mentioned?

There is no mention of his cookbooks?

He is a cousin to Lenny Kravitz, not mentioned...

Al Roker pooped his pants[edit]

There is youtube videos about Al Roker pooping in his pants. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.172.153.206 (talk) 07:11, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello Al, I get up early every day, Monday through Friday to watch your forecast along with all of your colleagues. I want to enter the trip to Ireland, but haven't found the link to do so. I enjoy watching you. You are a great inspiration to a lot of young people. My grandson asked me what he had to do, to be like you. His name is Hunter Wright. He's 13, going on 30. He's a great young man. Thanks for sharing your life with us all. Debby Commander Rowe Debby Commander Rowe (talk) 15:17, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
