‘Today’ Al Roker Missing From Thanksgiving Day Parade
Today co-host Al Roker is missing from the Thanksgiving Day Parade. This is a tough holiday for him since he’s still recovering. For the first time in 27 years, Al will be missing out this tradition with his co-hosts. He’s been a fixture in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade since 1995.
Al typically hosts the televised event alongside co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie. Today Show fans have been concerned about him in recent weeks. Al broke his social media silence to share that he had blood clots on his lungs and legs. He’s resting up to get back to work as soon as possible.
On Thursday, November 24, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb kicked off the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade alongside Dylan Dreyer, who filled in for Al Roker. All three ladies wished him well amid his recovery.
Unfortunately, Al had to skip out on this year’s event after he was rushed to the hospital with blood clots. Fans were concerned about his health since he went missing from the Today Show. They wanted to know where he’s been, especially since he’s been so outspoken about his struggles.
Al Roker will have to watch the broadcast of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade at home with his family. This could be a good thing for the weatherman. He previously expressed his excitement in seeing his son Nick, who is currently studying at college. Some fans already took to Twitter ahead of Thanksgiving to express their concerns.
“If Al Roker isn’t doing the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade this year, what is even the point of having Thanksgiving at all?” one fan wrote.
Other fans agreed that there was “no meaning” to the parade if Al Roker wasn’t there. On Thursday morning, Today Show bosses confirmed that he wouldn’t appear at the event. His co-host Sheinelle Jones hinted that Dylan would fill in for the missing anchor.
Al Roker’s wife Deborah Roberts has shared some updates on her Instagram page. She informed fans that he had an “ongoing issue.” She is especially grateful to the fans, who have shared their thoughts, prayers, and warm wishes for Al Roker. He’s received an overwhelming response from fans, friends, and followers.
Even his Today co-hosts are rooting for him to get back to work as soon as possible. It’s clear that Al Roker is deeply loved and missed. In his interview with Hello! Magazine, Al shared his Thanksgiving plans with his family. He was also looking forward to covering the parade on the streets of New York City.

NationalCrews work to prevent explosion at site of burning derailed train in Ohio as residents are urged to fleeThis photo taken with a drone shows portions of a Norfolk and Southern freight train that derailed Friday night in East Palestine, Ohio are still on fire at mid-day Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)(CNN) — As residents are urged to flee, teams at the site of a burning derailed train in East Palestine, Ohio, are working to prevent a “catastrophic tanker failure” and explosion that could shoot deadly shrapnel up to a mile away, officials said. The explosion risk comes from a drastic temperature change inside one of the rail cars, warned Ohio Gov. “The crew did receive an alarm from a wayside defect detector shortly before the derailment, indicating a mechanical issue,” Graham said. Investigators have also requested records from Norfolk Southern, including track inspection records, locomotive and railcar inspections and maintenance records, train crew records and qualifications, Graham said.1 hour ago WISH-TV

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has postponed a visit to China after Washington accused Beijing of violating the country’s sovereignty by flying what it called a spy balloon over the United States. The Pentagon said on Thursday it was tracking a high-altitude surveillance balloon over the United States. We now assess it is another Chinese surveillance balloon," Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder said in a statement, without specifying the balloon's exact location. “We are confident that this high-altitude surveillance balloon belongs to the [People’s Republic of China],” the Pentagon spokesman said. The Chinese statement further expressed regret over the unintended incident and said that it would continue to maintain communications with the US.2 days ago Press TV
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — The car owned by a missing 74-year-old Florida Lyft driver was found in North Carolina and the man who was driving it is wanted in connection with a homicide last week in southwest Florida, authorities said Friday. His red 2022 Kia Stinger was spotted in Miami that day, and then in a rural area north of Lake Okeechobee and later in north Florida, officials said. The vehicle was seen Thursday evening in North Carolina after the U.S. Marshal’s regional task force asked authorities to be on the lookout. Ellenburg said North Carolina state troopers used stop sticks to halt the vehicle in Ellenboro. Authorities are investigating how Flores obtained the missing Lyft driver’s car — Levin’s family said they do not know whether Flores was the passenger Levin picked up in Delray Beach on Monday.2 days ago WIBW-TV
