|The multi-faceted Al Roker|
I admit I didn't get to hear much of it, but Al Roker, the jolly weatherman, was on Jimmy Fallon tonight saying something about filming a special in the border town of Laredo, Texas. Come to think of it, I do recall posting something a few months ago about an item in the city council agenda pertaining to the same thing.
I also recall posting about an "Al Roker Productions Company" making plans to ride with local law enforcement teams in order to film a COPS-like program. I wondered out loud (in writing) if it was THE Al Roker behind the effort. It now appears that it was and so the formerly-chubby meteorologist is apparently expanding his repertoire.
So much for trying to improve the city's image. I wonder if whatever squad cars Roker's crew will be writing with will be displaying the new "Laredo-always a reason to celebrate" logo, as opposed to much-maligned, more traditional "Gateway to Mexico".
