Today’s Dylan Dryer breaks silence about filling in for Al Roker after he revealed health update in new pictures

Fans became concerned because Roker has been absent from the Today show due to his illness with Dylan filling in.

He captioned the post, which also featured images of special guests including Jimmy Fallon, Paula Abdul, and Karamo Brown: “Let’s have a parade!!!

“Happy Thanksgiving to your families and to all you love! It was a true honor to step in this morning and help out my dear friend @alroker who was sincerely missed this year at the @macys Thanksgiving Day Parade.

MISSING AL!

Today’s Hoda & Savannah share health update about Al & send him a sweet message

Roker has been the presenter of the Thanksgiving day parade since 1995, making Dreyer the exception to a nearly 30-year tradition.

From home on parade day, Roker posted a picture of him watching the parade on TV, captioned, “Back home in time to catch a little bit of the #macysthanksgivingdayparade Missing being next to @savannahguthrie and @hodakotb.”

Several hours later, he gave thanks on social media for being surrounded by loved ones on the gratitude-focused holiday.

He wrote underneath a photo of his family, “So very thankful to be able to be home for Thanksgiving dinner with family.”


Earlier this month, Roker was mysteriously absent from the morning show for two weeks before it emerged that he had been taken to hospital.

A source close to the anchor told the U.S. Sun that he hadn’t “been feeling well”.

They added: “He’s been off the air for almost two weeks, it’s been an ongoing issue [that] he’s been dealing with. 

“He’s such a wonderful and energetic guy, so it’s hard to remember that he’s 68 years old.”

Roker’s wife Deborah Roberts, 62, told fans that he had been feeling “under the weather” but was “ok”.

In an Instagram post on November 18, Roker said that he suffered from blood clots in his leg and lungs.

He said: “So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been.

“Last week I was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my leg which sent some clots into my lungs.

“After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery.

‘WISHES AND PRAYERS’

“Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers and hope to see you soon. Have a great weekend, everyone.”

Roker’s health battles come just months after he tested positive for coronavirus.

He said it was why he was missing from the network’s Hurricane Ian coverage.

Roker reassured fans by saying that his symptoms were not very apparent.

In November 2020, Roker revealed that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Addressing his health battle, he told viewers: “It’s a good news-bad news kind of thing.
