Al Roker joins The Weather Channel

Al RokerHere's a move that I'm surprised nobody thought of earlier. Iconic television weatherman Al Roker will be getting his own show on, get this, The Weather Channel. Wake Up With Al will air at 6 a.m. on weekday mornings and will be co-hosted by Stephanie Abrams. Al will be also continuing his duties on The Today Show.

In the standard workday, it's not unusual to find yourself discussing the weather with co-workers. It's a nice, harmless topic that everyone cares about to some degree. However, to dedicate an entire morning show to it seems excessive (mind you, I feel the same about an entire channel dedicated to it). On the other hand, if you're going to have a host of such a show, the natural choice is Al Roker.

Despite this achievement, I have no plans to consider Al as a serious journalist. Perhaps at some point he can get Mother Nature to appear on his show for an interview and discuss her infidelity with Father Time.

I'm sure he feels the same way about you. ;)

You do know NBC bought The Weather Channel last year, right?
