Al Roker Missed His Early-Morning Talk Show Because His Phone Alarm Failed

It's no sharting, but it's something.

Posted on August 6, 2013, at 2:29 p.m. ET

For the first time in his career, weather guru Al Roker overslept because his phone alarm didn't go off and he didn't have a backup. He missed hosting his show, Wake Up With Al, at 6 a.m. on the Weather Channel.

After 39 years, it happened. I overslept and missed a show. Missed #WUWA. But will be on time for @today
