Al started his career as a weather anchor while he was still studying Communications at State University of New York at Oswego. By the way, back then he had to deal with racism in his closest environment. According to Roker, his first college roommate greeted him with a shocked silence followed by, ‘So… you’re black.’ Apparently, he was not pleasantly surprised at all. When the future millionaire asked his roommate if he has ever hanged out with black people back at high schcool, his new „mate“ said he did not, explaining that „They always had these angry looks on their faces“. To this Al noted: Who wouldn’t look ticked off having to deal with nitwits like him?
Despite problems like this, Al‘s career was going pretty well. Al Roker net worth started to grow soon after his graduation from college, when he moved to Washington, D.C. and took a weathercasting position at independent station WTTG.
