Today’s Al Roker misses show again and Craig Melvin also goes absent as fan-favorite contributor fills in as host

Today’s Al Roker misses show again and Craig Melvin also goes absent as fan-favorite contributor fills in as host

TWO of the Today Show’s main anchors- Al Roker and Craig Melvin- have missed the show again.

Fan-favorite contributor, Jill Martin, filled in for them during the third hour.

Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb returned to the show on Monday, after health issues kept them both away.

However, on Tuesday, they were not joined by Craig, who typically comes in about 30 minutes into the show.

Instead, Dylan Dreyer and Carson Daly sat at the desk.

When Al is absent, typically Dylan reports the weather.

Al was also absent on Monday, but Craig joined Sheinelle Jones and Dylan for the third hour.

However, on Tuesday, they were both missing and fan-favorite host, Jill Martin, filled in for them.

She joined the third hour hosts for a workout segment, an interview with Broadway actor Anthony Rapp, and helped to discuss the rules of networking, among other things.

Neither of them gave an explanation for their absence.

However, Craig has been covering the Alex Murdaugh trial, which took place in South Carolina.


Today fans grew concerned for Al when he was absent from the show on Monday.

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

Al, 68, 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.”


However, another reason for Al being absent could be that he is going on a trip with his wife, Deborah Roberts.

She posted a video to her Instagram stories that showed her on a flight to an unknown location, on the same day Al was absent.

It is not clear if the meteorologist joined her or not, but it could be a good explanation as to where he is.

The 62-year-old shared a short clip while on a plane.

Her video was filmed while she sat on her flight, and focused out of the window.

The plane was heard to be in motion, and the skies looked sunny and bright as Deborah cruised above the clouds.

Deborah didn’t give any further detail –such as the location or purpose of the trip – alongside the quick post.
