Roker sometimes delivers the weather on the evening show which is presented by the journalist Lester Holt.

Holt was seen working at his desk and Today star Dylan Dreyer’s husband Brian Fichera, an NBC producer, was also seen in the shot.

The daytime TV star, who joked that he “lives in the back”, said: “It’s amazing that they’ve got three children. I don’t quite understand what’s happening.”

Roker gave viewers an update on what to expect on the evening program.

He also said that NBC Nightly News is filmed in the same studio as the Today show – a revelation that left fans stunned.

One fan said: “So weird seeing the set at night!”

But, viewers were left slightly confused as to why Roker was wearing a flower on the lapel of his suit.

Roker returned to the TV screens in January following his hospitalization with blood clots.

But, the veteran anchor has revealed that he will be having a knee replacement soon.

Roker shared the news while revealing that he had walked 11,184 steps.

He shared a picture of his smart watch and said: “Before my left knee went south, a 10k+ step day was no big deal.

“Today was the first day, I felt good walking this much.

“But the knee replacement of this 22-year-old knee replacement is just around the corner.”

The presenter’s fans rushed to comment on his photo and some even offered the star advice.

One fan said: “Just do what you can (Without hurting yourself) but keep going!!”

Dozens of viewers branded the weatherman an “inspiration” while others warned that he should “take it slow.”


Roker was hospitalized in November 2022 after blood clots were discovered in his legs and lungs.

The weatherman was released on Thanksgiving Day but was suddenly re-admitted to the hospital just a day later.

Due to his health issues, he was absent from the morning show for two months.

It meant he was forced to miss festive events such as The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree.

Roker has since opened up on his health battles and revealed that he underwent a grueling seven-hour surgery.

His wife of more than 20 years, Deborah Roberts, said that he was a “very, very, very sick man.”

Deborah appeared on the Conversations Above The Noise with Maria show and opened up about Roker’s hospitalization.

She admitted: “We really did think we were going to lose him.”
