Al Roker On His White House Accident: ‘I’m Laughing All the Way to the Bank’

TVNewser caught up with “Today” show weatherman Al Roker in Chicago this morning. He’s on a book tour for Never Goin’ Back Winning the Weight-Loss Battle For Good. It’s about his battle to keep off the pounds following gastric bypass surgery.

Much more of our conversation tomorrow, including just how long Mr. Roker intends on staying with “Today.” First, Roker uses a food analogy to discuss how “Today” intends on getting back the hundreds of thousands of viewers lost in the past year. We also asked whether he was surprised that his post-surgery White House confessional on “Dateline” went viral days later.
