Today’s Al Roker jokes he’s ‘glad they gave him hair segment’ after unveiling new look in awkward live moment

AL Roker has joked about producers assigning him a hair segment in a hilarious moment on live TV.

The Today Show star has returned in full force to the delight of fans after recovering from his terrifying health scare late last year.

During Tuesday’s episode of the morning program, Al, 68, showed off his beloved humor during a new segment.

The TV personality and his cast mates celebrated some of the winners of Essence Magazine’s “Best in Beauty Awards” by promoting their products on camera.

Host Dylan Dreyer presented a sunscreen brand, Sheinelle Jones discussed a body oil, and Al was left with a hair transition mask.

When it was the weatherman’s turn to present, he jokingly told viewers: “I like that they gave me the hair product.”

The others burst into laughter at the funny on-screen blunder.


The hilarious moment followed Al’s sharp new look over social media to start the week looking fresh. 

The long-time Today meteorologist shared the change in an Instagram post on Sunday. 

“Starting the week off right with a clean #headshave,” Roker, 68, wrote in the caption. 

The post featured a before and after of Roker’s iconic shaven look, with the before photo showing the host’s head covered in shaving cream. 

“Just Can’t with you @alroker,” his wife Deborah Roberts commented under the post with a laughing face emoji. 

Dozens of fans also chimed in on Roker’s sudsy look. 

Several others pointed out how they were glad to see the Today host looking happy and healthy after he was absent from the morning show for several months. 

Fans have been thrilled to have Al back on Today after his dangerous battle with blood clots last year.


On Wednesday, the beloved meteorologist shocked fans with an unrecognizable throwback photo that was taken in 2007.

The father of three recalled meeting The Office stars Brian Baumgartner, Angela Kinsey, and Craig Robinson at a convention that honored the hit NBC show in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

The TV star, who was wearing a baseball cap, beamed in the photo as he posed alongside the three TV stars.

More than a decade later, Brian appeared on Today’s 3rd hour and was seen rustling up a chili in a live cooking demonstration.

Brian’s character in The Office Kevin Malone was famous for spilling a huge vat of chili.

Al shared a photo of the demonstration and the throwback picture in a touching post on Instagram.

Some fans told Al that they also attended the convention, while others gushed over the picture.

One viewer said: “Love this!!! From a Scranton girl.”

Kate Flannery, who played Meredith Palmer in The Office, chimed: “I was there! We’ll always have Scranton.”

Baumgartner posted on Instagram that it was “crazy” he hadn’t aged after sharing the two snaps.


Last month, the Today Twitter account shared a clip of Al interviewing Law and Order SVU star Mariska Hargitay in 2001.

The beloved meteorologist underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2002.

The weather presenter was dressed in a gray pinstripe suit with a blue shirt and a patterned tie as he talked to Mariska about her role as Olivia Benson in Law & Order: SVU.

The 18-second clip began with Al asking Mariska: “Are you ready to be in here for the long haul?”

“Yeah, I sort of see what life throws at me and I’m so happy to be here,” she replied.

“I sort of trust the process, who knows where I’ll be in three years, but I love New York and I love this character and I love my cast mates, so I’m pretty happy right now.”

The Twitter video was captioned: “Mariska Hargitay told Al Roker in 2001 that she didn’t know where she would be on
@lawandordertv in three years, but that she loved playing Olivia Benson.

“Well, 22 years later, she and the show are still going strong — we love to see it!!!”

Viewers were left wowed by the clip as one fan said: “The transformation of Al always amazes me.”
