TODAY family sends love to Al Roker after he shared he’s in the hospital


For those who’ve wondered why they haven’t seen Al Roker’s smiling face on TODAY recently, the weatherman-and-more has just revealed the reason for his absence.

On Friday, Nov. 18, he shared on Instagram that he’s currently in the hospital.

“So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been,” he wrote. “Last week I was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my leg which sent some clots into my lungs. After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery.”

He added a note of thanks “for all the well wishes and prayers” he’s received and said that he hoped to see everyone again soon.

That’s just what his TODAY family hopes for, too. Shortly after he shared the news with his followers on social media, his fellow anchors chimed in about the man they miss.

“He’s in good spirits,” Savannah Guthrie said on TODAY. 

Dylan Dreyer offered some proof of that.

“Not that you need us to tell you how incredible Al is, the first time I called him, he immediately said, ‘Hey Dilly-Dill! How are the boys?'” she recalled. “That’s classic Al.”

And Carson Daly said, “We need him back,” as he raved about what an inspiration Al is to him every morning.

Savannah summed it up, saying, “We love you, Al. We miss you!”

Get well soon, Al!
