Al Roker is officially a Guinness World Record holder!
After being on-air for 34 hours straight, the TODAY Show weatherman broke the record for the longest uninterrupted live weather report this morning — and Al, 60, was nothing but ecstatic to receive his new title!

The weatherman's effort — which began at 10:05 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 12 and wrapped up just after 8 a.m. this morning — was planned in conjunction with the internationally celebrated 'Guinness World Records Day' on November 13.

The TODAY co-anchors were on hand to help Al celebrate the moment when he officially made the record-setting forecast — which was chronicled on social media using the hashtag 'Rokerthon' — earlier today with balloons and confetti.
But the weatherman was most surprised to receive an on-air congratulatory call from none other than Vice President Joe Biden!

"All that money for the USO! Thanks buddy!" said Joe in reference to Al asking fans to pledge their #Rokerthon support via his Crowdrise campaign, which benefits the nation's armed forces and United Service Organizations (USO).
During the 34-hour long forecast, a plethora of Al's famous friends — including Matt Lauer, Tamron Hall, Aaron Sorkin, Alan Alda and Candice Bergen — stopped by Rockefeller Center's Studio 1A to show their support and help keep the weatherman awake!
