“Today” show anchor Al Roker hospitalized for blood clots

NEW YORK (AP) — Al Roker says he’s recovering after he was hospitalized last week for blood clots in his leg and lungs. The NBC “Today” show weather anchor made the announcement in an Instagram post Friday. The 68-year-old Roker said that’s why viewers haven’t seen him on the show. Roker said he’s “getting terrific medical care” and is on the way to recovery. He thanked everyone for their well-wishes and prayers. His co-anchors wished him well online and on the show. It’s not immediately clear whether Roker will be able to co-host NBC’s coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which he’s done since 1995.
