His full name is Albert Lincoln Roker. He was born on August 20, 1954, and is an American Weatherman and an actor.
He is also known for being a presenter on “Today.”
He has an inactive American Meteorological Society Television Seal #238.
In 2014, he attempted to beat the unofficial world record for a live weather report of 33 hours held by Norweigan weather broadcaster Eli Kari Gjengedal.
As Roker is black, he and his family had to go through racial discrimination.
And on November 23, 2015, Albert filed a complaint about racial discrimination.
He filed a complaint after he and his son attempted to get a cab, but that cab driver ignored them and passed them on, picking up a white man on the next block.
Roker received heavy criticism when he joked about the Olympic logo in 2012 related to epilepsy.
As many people were not happy with the joke, Roker clarified himself, saying that he wasn’t joking about epilepsy or anyone who has epilepsy as he understood that it created negative impact and would never joke about that.
