Al Roker Mixes Up Willie Geist and Joe Scarborough

MSNBC’s Willie Geist was sitting in on “Morning Joe” today for Joe Scarborough, but apparently no one told Al Roker who, appearing from a beach in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, called him “Joe” TWICE.

After correcting Roker — and giving him a hard time with Mike Barnicle — Geist ended the segment saying, “Sam Champion, reporting live for us from Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks, Sammy.” Video:

Later, here’s what Geist said he learned during today’s show: “I learned that Al Roker — a wonderful reporter, we talked to him about the ratings of his show — proved again why he’s America’s second most beloved weatherman behind Sam Champion. So nice job by you, Al.”
