Al Roker Son – Al Roker Jr

Deborah Roberts and Al Roker spoke out about their 15-year-old son Nicholas‘ struggles for the first time at the 2018 ADAPT Leadership Awards Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York on Thursday night, telling PEOPLE exclusively, “He was dealing with some developmental delays.”

“We hope that more people will be open to expressing and maybe sharing that a lot of us are dealing with challenges in life,” ABC News journalist Roberts told PEOPLE.

“There has been a stigma over the years, especially if it’s not an obvious challenge that people know, and I think to be able to share and inspire and to give other people the encouragement, I think that life can be enriched and can be better and can be in some ways richer when you are loving and supporting and dealing with somebody who is dealing with challenges.”

Roberts, 57, said that after her son was born, “it was pretty apparent that he was facing some challenges, and we weren’t sure what his world and what our future would be.” After she and her Today Show weatherman husband Roker assembled a team of therapists, though, “we watched him blossom.”

“We wondered was he going to speak? Was he going to walk? And in no time, he was running and talking more than I thought he would ever do,” she added. “He eventually began to go to school, and to learn, and to read, and to do all those things that we dreamed and hoped he would do even with all his challenges.

He began to dream, he became a swimmer, he joined Taekwondo and three years ago, he becomes a black belt.”

She gushed: “When given the opportunity and the encouragement, and the support, so many of us can just exceed beyond our wildest dreams.”

And Today anchorman Roker, 63, expressed his hope that people can be “more open and accepting of people with these challenges.”

Referencing President Donald Trump, he said, “There’s been a lot of talk about building big, beautiful walls. Well, we have to tear down those walls, tear them down, make them nice.”

Al Roker Leaving Today Show – Al Roker Fired

NBC rolled out the red carpet for Megyn Kelly, who the network poached from her former home at Fox News where she had worked for 12 years.

Kelly had announced she was leaving Fox News to take on a new role at NBC News. As part of a multi-year agreement she inked with NBC, Kelly was to host her own daytime news program, as well as anchor a Sunday evening news show, and as well take part in special political programming and other breaking news coverage.

This obviously meant that there would be a lineup shake-up having to accommodate Kelly at NBC – notably the daytime hour.

The network had not made any official statements over this yet, but various reputable sources, like the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Deadline, the New York Times, and several others of their stature, are all reporting that programming Kelly’s new daytime show into NBC’s morning schedule will result in Al Roker and Tamron Hall’s “Today’s Take” hour.

which was being aired from 9 am to 10 am – being canceled, starting in the fall of this year. Sources say Kelly’s show timeslot is still being decided by NBC, but it’s expected that she will take over either the “Today” show 9 am or 10 am hour; if it ends up being the 10 am hour, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, who currently host the 10 am hour, will move to 9 am.

Al Roker Poop

He made an embarrassing admission during Dateline on Sunday when he recalled an incident that happened after undergoing gastric bypass surgery in 2002.

In an interviewed by correspondent Nancy Snyderman, MD, having ost more than 100 lbs. following the surgery, he confessed to having an accident while at the White House.

“And I probably went off and ate something I wasn’t supposed to. And as I’m walking to the press room I gotta pass a little gas here. I’m walking by myself. Who’s gonna know? Only a little something extra came out,” the news anchor explains.

“You pooped in your pants,” correspondent Snyderman answers.

“I pooped my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew,” Roker – who recently released a memoir Never Goin’ Back: My Weight Loss Journey – says.

Snyderman interjects that it’s a “common side effect of the surgery.”

In the moments after the incident, an anxious Roker, 58, had to think fast.

“I was panicking, so I got to the restroom of the press room, threw out the underwear and just went commando.”

Despite the traumatic experience, Roker says he learned a big lesson that day.

“It told me that I’ve gotta be very vigilant as to what I eat,” he says.
