Al Roker shares Thanksgiving Day update as his ‘Today Show’ co-anchors carry on the parade without him

Al Roker offers update from the hospital on Thanksgiving Day...


After being hospitalized because of blood clots doctors found in his body, Al Roker, the longtime anchor of the Today show, posted an update regarding his health condition.

On Thanksgiving Day, he shared a photo of him at the hospital and wrote how he recovered.

Sadly, after many years of co-anchoring the Thanksgiving Parade, Al Roker missed this year’s event and watched it on TV instead.

The famous weatherman said in a video, “Alright, this is my version of the Thanksgiving Day parade. Getting ready to leave the hospital, time to blow this taco stand! Woohoo!” as he was walking out of the hospital.

“Yay Al!!!! Love love this video!!! Parade was not the same without YOU!!!” Hoda Kotb wrote in the comments! “Yasss!! Now we are especially thankful for you too!!! And all those doctors and nurses who took care of our dear one!” Jenna Bush Hager added.

Later, he posted another update, a photo showing him with his thumbs up at home, watching his co-workers carry on the tradition without him for the first time after 27 years. “Back home in time to catch a little bit of the #macysthanksgivingdayparade Missing being next to @savannahguthrie and @hodakotb.”

This isn’t the first time for the TV personality to experience health issues. Two years ago, he revealed he’d been diagnosed with prostate cancer and had to have an organ removed. On top of it, he had undergone several surgeries to help him with his hip and knees issues.

Roker, who has been working in broadcast since the mid-’70s, has won a number of prizes over the years for his newscasts. Despite experiencing plenty of health issues, he was able to complete the Brooklyn Half Marathon just six months ago. 

He still hasn’t revealed when he will be back on his show.

We wish him a speed recovery.
