Al Roker is the odds-on favorite to take over the 9 a.m. Today slot from Megyn Kelly, at least temporarily
The Today weatherman could return to the timeslot he shared with Tamron Hall. "NBC’s Today show weatherman-and-so-much-more Al Roker is odds-on fave to step in to Kelly’s 9 AM weekday Today time slot," according to Deadline, "at least on an interim basis. It makes sense, as he was one of the Today time slot’s two co-hosts – Tamron Hall was the other – for several years, until NBC shoveled out $70M to land the Fox News Channel primetime star, giving her the hour." ALSO: Tamron Hall and Al Roker were all smiles in a photo she posted to Twitter Thursday night -- without referencing the Kelly scandal.
