Today Show’s Al Roker Went Lobstering And Drank Moxie In Maine
The Today Show weatherman swept into New England this week, as part of the program's Great Outdoor Series.
First reported by the Portland Press Herald, Roker and a crew from NBC’s “Today” show filmed a part of Tuesday’s show from the midcoast Maine town of Georgetown. This segment of The Great Outdoors Series found Roker clamming, lobstering and camping in Vacationland.
According to WCSH, the clamming took place on Monday afternoon. Roker, travelling with fellow Today Show member Craig Melvin said, "I've known Craig Melvin for four years now, he's a very mellow gentleman. He became a BEAST! Started going nuts with the clamming. He went nuts. 'HEY LOOK AT THIS! HEY LOOK AT THIS!' He went nuts."
Roker has previously been to Maine, but it had been a while. The Press Herald reported he has a very specific memory of a family vacation at a campground near Kennebunk some 25 years ago. “I had never seen horseflies that big. Those things had saddles on them."
