Al Roker, Jim Bell Make THR’s ‘Philanthropy Issue’

NBC “Today” executive producer Jim Bell and weather anchor Al Roker get profiled in The Hollywood Reporter‘s new “Philanthropy Issue.” The reason for the accolades? Roker’s “Lend a Hand” series on “Today.,” which helps those in need.

For 10 years, Roker has spearheaded Today’s annual weeklong Lend a Hand tour, crisscrossing the U.S. in a truck filled with millions of dollars worth of supplies — everything from food to clothes to cars are donated by businesses — for needy charities. “He has not forgotten where he came from and considers himself to be the luckiest guy. He loves giving back,” says Today exec producer Bell.
