He’s back! Al Roker disclosed when he will be back on the Today show on Tuesday, November 17 — five days after the weatherman underwent prostate cancer surgery.
“It was this great comfort,” the 66-year-old said. “For a first start, this is terrific news. I’m going to be up for — and a lot of people who live with cancer — lifelong testing to make sure this doesn’t come back.”
The television personality’s surgery took five hours and was performed by Dr. Vincent Landone at New York City’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. “The prognosis at this point in time, based on how the surgery went and based on his pathology report, everything looks very favorable,” the doctor noted. “We would say that Al has no evidence of any cancer, but we’ll continue to monitor him for several years.”
