NBC’s famous weather anchor Albert Lincoln “Al” Roker has just announced that - exactly one year after he achieved his first Guinness World Records title - he is attempting something even bigger.
The American TV star will be attempting to set an all-new record for the Fastest time to report a weather forecast from all 50 US states.
Dubbed the “Rokerthon 2”, Al will carry out his first report in Hawaii on 6 November live on NBC’s TODAY and will then travel around the country delivering the weather news wherever he goes, with his forecasts airing on a variety of NBC platforms across the US.
The epic, week-long attempt will conclude live on Rockerfeller Plaza on 13 November where we will find out if he has successfully achieved a new Guinness World Records title.
Last year Al took part in GWR Day on which he endured the Longest uninterrupted live TV weather report for 34 hours, at NBC Studios in New York.
The live TV marathon – #Rokerthon – became the top trending topic on Twitter that day, and attracted even more buzz than Kim Kardashian’s attempt to “break the internet” with her much publicised risqué magazine shoot.
