Following KNBC Weathercaster’s ‘Kook’ Comment, Al Roker Makes L.A. His ‘Pick City’

After KNBC morning weathercaster Elita Loresca was caught on-air calling Al Roker a “kook” last Friday, it was only fitting that “Today” would make Los Angeles its “Pick City” during Roker’s forecast this morning.

Loresca’s “kook” comment was played up by TMZ but she and Roker quickly dismissed the incident. On Twitter, Roker wrote, “She was joking. And some mornings I am kooky. No big whoop.”

Although Roker didn’t mention the “kook” comment during his “Pick City” bit, it can be seen as a subtle nod to Loresca. And, following a technical flub with the segment this morning (intro music played and a map appeared at the top of Roker’s weather report but he didn’t end up introducing L.A. until the very end), Roker certainly acted kooky.

“You nailed that Pick City,” Wille Geist said dryly.

KNBC’s Elita Loresca Calls Al Roker a ‘Kook’

KNBC’s morning weathercaster Elita Loresca was caught on-air this morning calling Al Roker a “kook.” (TMZ has the video). Here’s what happened: A switching error on KNBC’s end led to viewers in LA seeing Loresca on air for several seconds, and hearing her say, “Oh my God, Al Roker is a Kook.” before she sang a few bars of Bruno Mars‘ “The Lazy Song.”

Mars was the Friday Summer Concert Series guest.

Loresca apologized in a later cut-in. And by this afternoon, Roker said it was “no big whoop.”
