Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie Reunite to Film 'Today Show' Outdoors after Working from Home

Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie were the lucky "Today Show" hosts who got out of the house — and the studio — for a recent segment. "Please don't have too much fun without us there, you two," Hoda told them.


On Tuesday, Hoda Kotb stayed in the "Today Show" studio, where she introduced co-hosts, Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, most of the filming for the show is done at home.

However, after months under lockdown, Guthrie and Roker were finally able to step outside in the streets of Hudson, New York. The clip is found below.



Roker, 65, and Guthrie, 48, practiced social distancing as they reported live from a town along the Hudson river valley. Meanwhile, Kotb, 55, sat down inside Studio 1A in upstate New York.

"It's summer tourist season now, and this is a really important day, reopening day," Guthrie announced from her new location. She noted that businesses in the area were hit hard due to the pandemic.

She then excitedly stated: "Here's the fun right here. Will you believe this? Al Roker, we have been reunited. We did the air hug. We're air kissing."

As she spoke, the camera panned out to show Roker at least six feet away next to Guthrie. The weather reporter revealed that not only has he lived in this area before, but his family has been living there for over 20 years.



Roker later posted fun selfies with himself and Guthrie enjoying their time out on Instagram. Guthrie appeared to be giving more air hugs as she stood a few feet behind her colleague.

Roker has been working from home since March when the "Today Show" joined several other talk shows in a partial shut down of their in-person production.


While Kotb continued to go to the studio and practice social distancing, Guthrie had a short health scare that forced her to self-isolate. She explained to her co-host she had "a little sore throat and some sniffles."


Guthrie followed colleagues Al Roker and Craig Melvin, who were sent home after a crew member received a positive coronavirus test result. Thankfully, Guthrie was able to return to the studio almost two weeks later.

Kotb was extremely grateful as she felt some sense of normalcy thanks to Guthrie's presence. Due to his age and vulnerability, Roker remained home where he used his iPad to give the weather report.



Staying home also meant that viewers got a rare chance to see Roker's teenage son when he crashed the show last month. Nick, 16, put his height on full display for his cameo.

When his dad asked him to stand up, Nick's head immediately disappeared from the frame. Roker's colleagues were in awe. When Kotb asked how tall the boy is, Roker said he's about six feet, one inch.


Elsewhere, the father-son duo is also sharing more camera time on Roker's new meal preparation videos, which he's titled "What We're Cooking." He posts the series on Instagram.

Nick is often behind the scenes for the amateur show, which typically lasts around five minutes. We're sure Roker's family can't wait to get out more as the place opens up slowly.
