In Chicago, Al Roker Praises Fellow Weatherman WGN’s Tom Skilling

In chilly Chicago this morning, TVSpy caught up with Al Roker between his “Today” show weather reports. In addition to talking about this and that (we’ll post those stories on TVNewser later) we asked the 35-year NBC News veteran about longtime Windy City weatherman Tom Skilling. A few months ago the WGN meteorologist re-upped signing a whopping 10-year contract.

Roker says Skilling’s enduring presence – he’s been at WGN for more than three decades – is a real testament to the local legend. “People can get weather online, or on their phone, you can get weather any time you want.  But [viewers] trust him, they believe him.”
