Al Roker fans concerned as Today host misses morning show after Savannah Guthrie tested positive for Covid

Al Roker fans concerned as Today host misses morning show after Savannah Guthrie tested positive for Covid

AL Roker fans have been concerned about the morning show host, calling for the network to ‘protect him at all costs.’

The weatherman, 68, seemingly stayed home after co-host Savannah Guthrie was given a COVID diagnosis last week.

Al had initially been nervous when Savannah had tested positive for COVID, due to his fragile health as of late.

He had only recently come back to his hosting duties after spending a lengthy amount of time in the hospital due to blood clots.

Savannah had since returned to the show after making a quick recovery.

However, that left Al missing, which fans picked up on immediately.

One concerned fan replied to a tweet about the morning show: “I turned it on today to see if Al Roker was at work…nope.”

Another commented: “We see you nnnnnBC. Protect Al Roker at all costs.”

One excited viewer tweeted: “Al Roker is a national treasure! Protect him at all costs!!”

Another said: “I noticed Al Roker was not there this morning. He had a really bad case of Covid late last year.”

Al isn’t the only host to have had some time away.

Recently, Hoda Kotb returned to the Today Show as well after taking some time to handle her daughter’s health scare.

The show has seen its fair share of absences over the past few weeks.

Fans have been left wondering what has happened with their favorite hosts when they turn up missing at various intervals.


Meanwhile, Al’s wife Deborah Roberts has revealed her weakness is cute and cozy sweaters.

Deborah, 62, had come down with a severe cold last month, but has appeared to bounce back wearing a colorful sweater and showing off a large smile.

She took to Instagram to share her cheerful outfit and outlook.

Deborah had posted a selfie that said: “Ending the weekend on a fiery note.”

She then asked her fans: “How was yours?”

A ton of fans commented on her wordplay in her caption, referring to her sweater which had yellow, pink, blue, and red flames prints on it.

One fan said: “Another fabulous sweater!”

To which Deborah confessed: “My weakness!”

Another fan commented: “You have the best sweaters and best flowers!”

Deborah replied: “Thanks – a bit of happiness.”

Yet a third fan shared: “Sweater – play on words. Cute.”

Al’s wife responded with a few red heart emojis.

She continued to interact with her fans about their weekends in the comments.


Deborah appears to be bouncing back from a rough few days where she battled with her health in February.

Last month, Deborah told her fans she was taking a break.

In a video she told her followers she “had a frog in her throat” and felt under the weather.

She said: “Sometimes your body says, ‘Enough. It’s time to take a break, recharge, renew,’ and I think my body is screaming that right now.”

Deborah added: “So I am going to do just that. I’m going to take a little breather, take a couple of days and try to refresh and recharge.

“Going to sign off social media and just do a little focus on me… I’ll see ya when I see ya.”


Deborah appeared to have traveled up to Hudson Valley north of New York City to escape the metropolis and unplug for a few days with her husband, Al Roker, 68.

Al took to Instagram to share a few peaceful clips from their relaxing weekend.

He shared snow falling on a backyard of lush evergreens, and a clip of a rustic, roaring fireplace.

Al commented: “Hope you’re having some #saturdayserenity.”

As many of Al’s fans have expressed concerns about his busy work schedule after his health scare, they were happy to see the Today Show host relaxing.

His health scare happened amid the holidays when he was hospitalized due to blood clots in his lungs.

The host also underwent surgery after he suffered internal bleeding and had his gallbladder and part of his colon removed.
