Nov 14, 2014  •  Post A Comment

Al Roker, a morning fixture as the weatherman on NBC’s “Today” show, is now a world record holder. TVNewser reports that Roker’s 34-hour “Rokerthon” set the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous weather forecast.

Roker reached his goal just after 8 a.m. ET Friday, when the weatherman hit the 34-hour mark, the story reports.

The article adds: “His voice raw, his body exhausted, Roker’s off for a long rest.”

Roker’s weathercast, which began Wednesday at 10 p.m., was carried live on Today.com with spots on the network’s “Today” broadcast. The effort raised about $70,000 for the USO, the piece notes.
