America’s favorite weatherman, Al Roker, didn’t waste any time last week getting in position for the latest “storm of the century,” Nemo, as it bared down on Boston. Reporting from Boston Common throughout the epic “blizzicane,” Roker provided commentary on the weather event for the country from the very heart of our historic Beantown. Since the snowflakes have ceased falling this weekend, Roker has remained in town, talking to local newscasters about the weather, and the upcoming broadcast from Boston later this week.
“The Today Show” is set to broadcast from town this Friday, February 15th, starting at 6:30 a.m., and concluding at 9 a.m. Local spots around town have already started preparing for the show, getting ready to welcome the morning show hosts’ arrival. Faneuil Hall Marketplace/Quincy Market already posted a photo to their Facebook page showing specially made pretzels by Boston Pretzel featuring “The Today Show” logo, and letters spelling out a welcome to the crew. Hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie will be leaving their familiar digs at Rockefeller Center to broadcast their entire show live from the Cradle of Liberty.
Enthusiastic viewers are encouraged to come out, and bring your signs, to welcome the crew and watch them deliver the news live early on Friday. The show will primarily be taped in the West End of Faneuil Hall as well as the Upper Rotunda.
