    NBC’s Al Roker asked former President Barack Obama to reflect on the 2014 annexation of Crimea, and whether that was a prelude to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. NBC released a preview of their interview with Obama, wherein the 44th president was asked “is this the Vladimir Putin that you had to deal with [during your tenure]?” Obama answered that Putin “has always been ruthless” and nationalistic, but “what we’ve seen with the invasion of Ukraine is him being reckless in a way that you might not have anticipated 8, 10 years ago.” From there, Roker said “hindsight’s 2020” as he brought up the annexation of Crimea, a recurring source of debate concerning Obama’s legacy and America’s Ukraine policy. The Obama administration has been frequently criticized in the past for not taking more severe action against Russia over that event, and as Russia continues its current assault on Ukraine, Roker asked the ex-president “Do you ever think ‘could I have done something differently?'” “The situations in each of those circumstances are different,” Obama answered, “but I think what we’re seeing consistently...

    The anchors at the Today Show went all out for Halloween this year, Al Roker tackling The Weeknd’s iconic Super Bowl halftime show.  The Today Show crew kicked off the Halloween festivities with a “Football Night in America” themed show, during which they paid tribute to the NFL’s biggest stars and cheerleaders, and to fan-favorite Super Bowl commercials and halftime performances.

    Al Roker took a moment during his Hurricane Ida coverage Monday to say “we are looking at the results of climate change.” Roker has been in Louisiana for the past few days covering the hurricane. A million people are without power and at least one person has died. Andrea Mitchell asked Roker how he would compare Ida to the devastation sixteen years ago when Hurricane Katrina hit. He compared the two serious storms and the damage they did to the region, saying for many residents “this is far worse than Katrina.” As he wrapped up his report, Roker went out of his way to share a message about climate change: I just want to say we are looking at the results of climate change. Those gulf waters were about 3 to 5 degrees above average, 88 to 90 degrees, and that is purely climate change and that’s what created this monster storm. We saw this rapid intensification happen. I mean, this thing — rapid intensification is 35 miles per hour in 24 hours. This thing increased by over 60 miles...
    Windswept Al Roker was pummeled by angry waves alongside Lake Pontchartain as he and the TODAY team reported live from New Orleans just hours before record-setting Hurricane Ida made landfall this afternoon.  The footage of the 67-year-old meteorologist laid bare the immense force of the Category 4 hurricane that careened from Cuba up into the Gulf of Mexico on Friday and led tens of thousands to evacuate their homes.  The power of the storm's 150mph winds, which made landfall around midday local time Sunday, were apparent as Roker's rain jacket and pants fluttered around him and roiling waves crashed down onto his head.  Behind-the-scenes footage of weather conditions that Roker shared to Instagram early Sunday morning painted an even clearer picture of the storm's ramping severity. 'We just got word that this will most likely be one of the top five strongest landfalls ever,' shouted weatherman Al Roker in a broadcast aired from New Orleans around 7 am EST this morning. Roker was barely visible as one huge wave crashed over him - but he later assured viewers...

    The media almost unanimously fawned over Joe Biden and the events of inauguration day with some crying over it, calling it America's 'happy ending' and gushing over new press secretary Jen Psaki who was given a remarkably warm welcome on her first day after years of hostility between the media gaggle and the person at the briefing room podium.  Since Biden was inaugurated on Wednesday and even before then, some media outlets have relaxed their impartiality to welcome him and his administration with open arms. Unsurprisingly, many belong to the organizations that President Trump made enemies of throughout his presidency.  But there was a huge amount of gushing over Biden on Wednesday, the likes of which Trump's team - specifically his combative press secretaries - could only have dreamed of.  The outpouring will do nothing to restore any kind of trust in the media among Republican voters who have become turned off by the relentlessly anti-Trump coverage of the last four years.  Politico columnist Jack Shafer on Thursday called for 'a little sobriety' from his colleagues in the media.  'CNN...

The 66-year-old, who underwent prostate cancer surgery last fall, told viewers he qualified for the vaccine in New York state because he’s over 65 — and not since he’s a celebrity. “All weekend long, I went on the New York state Health dot Gov website and kept logging in and adding in my information, kept logging in, and logging in,” he said, noting that he found success on Sunday morning. “I kept hitting refresh, refresh, refresh on the browser, and finally got in,” Roker continued. “… They put up a certain number of appointments each day and then, luck of the draw.” Roker said his brother Christopher Roker, CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals, previously said “Hey, you can come here,” but the TV weatherman said “no.” “… I said, ‘I don’t want to jump the line, I want to do this officially,’” he said.

    'There are times when you want to go low. You want to take people off at their knees, but it's just not worth it,' said Roker. The Today Show’s Al Roker recently released a new book entitled You Look So Much Better in Person. In the book he recounts a racist experience he once encountered while on-air as a reporter for WKYC, an affiliate in Cleveland. He and his current co-anchor Craig Melvin discussed the incident during the show, according to Today. At the time, Roker had been working with the late Doug Adair. At the end of each work day they would exit the studio located in downtown Cleveland. One night, a Black homeless man hit Adair with a rolled up newspaper before making a run for it.
