Al Roker Leaves Mic on During Bathroom Break of 34-Hour Weather Marathon


NBC weatherman Al Roker is trying to set a record for the longest uninterrupted weather report in history, and he plans on continuing for 34 hours straight. Roker started at 10:00 p.m. last night, and apparently some interesting things happened overnight.

If you were watching the livestream overnight, you might have noticed — aside from Roker’s usual banter — a particularly odd occurrence when he took a break to use the bathroom.


The evening’s most memorable moment came when Al took his first bathroom break — with his microphone streaming sound to viewers. Al’s take on the moment: “Live stream has a new meaning.”


A few Twitter users also picked up on Roker’s “oops” moment:

21 hours to go, Al! But even if you can’t get through all 34 hours, it probably won’t be as embarrassing as this was.
