Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Al (on his controversial interview with Heidi and Spencer Pratt): When I got the assignment they said I'd be interviewing Speidi, I thought, Tobey McGuire? Is it Spiderman 4?

    • (Al's most famous catchphrase on the Today show when he segues to the local weather.)
      Al: That's what's going on around the country; Here's what's happening in your neck of the woods.

    • Al: (on if Katie Couric were to leave Today which then was unsure) None of us can worry about that, because it's not something we can control.

    • Al: (on being weatherman on "The Today Show" as he told The Associated Press) I was just thrilled to get the gig to begin with. Ten years later to still have it is not only thrilling but also somewhat of a puzzlement.

    • Al: I ate myself stupid, I thought, `I'm never going to eat like this again.' The only trick was to make sure I didn't have a heart attack before I did the deal.

  • I don't understand how he's still on the Today Show

    I have stopped watching the Today Show shortly after Tamorn appeared, as if Al wasn't bad enough prior, he's gotten worse after her arrival. His humor is overly amusing to himself, I find him ignorant and the faces he makes when he doesn't agree - he's an easy read, and would like to see him disappear off TV. I can't even stand to see the weather channel clips that have him on it.moreless

    You are the only reason I would watch the Today Show now. I have since moved on to CBS and ABC because of the sexist nature of the show towards vs. younger women. I started noticing this when I became older, at 50 plus. Before, I couldn't understand why my mother was bothered about this. Stay healthy, stay happy Al! You are a ray of sunshine.
