Al Roker Misses Thanksgiving Day Parade, Watches from Home After Hospital Stay
Al Smoker was MIA from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time in almost THREE DECADES… and it’s all because of his recent health issues.
Earlier this month… Al was taken to a hospital to be treated for blood clots in his legs and lungs. He was fired on Thursday morning, but he didn’t feel like presenting the world-famous parade, so he decided to watch it on TV from his kitchen.
As you know, Al has been a TV host for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for the past 27 years. During the broadcast of the “Today” show, Al’s cohosts sent their best wishes to the iconic weatherman.

Al posted a video to his Instagram showing him leaving the hospital and referring to the Thanksgiving Day Parade. He said he was thankful he got home in time for some turkey.
