Al Roker has much to be thankful for this holiday season. He is celebrating being home from his last hospital stay this month.
He worried a countless number of fans along with his family and friends with that long hospital battle. Thankfully, he has been home and back to work for almost a year.
This year, he resumed his duties at the Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade alongside co-workers and friends Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.
The popular Today Show weatherman also hit a milestone with his health by counting his steps. He has hit the goal of over 10,000 daily actions in the last 60 days.
And then there are his projects away from Today and his gig as a weatherman. He has a new book, Murder on Demand, in his popular Morning Show Murders series.
He has teased another job that could take him away from Today.
