Is anyone else even remotely concerned that Al Roker has written a book called The Morning Show Murders? Er, foreshadowing, anyone?….Nah, I’m just bustin’ his chops. And I immediately apologize for using the phrase “bustin’ his chops.” I’m not cool enough to be talking like that. Anyway. Al Roker has written a murder mystery book, and has been doing the typical promotional activities one would do for such a thing. And, lo and behold, it has been revealed that Studio 1A, where The Today Show is filmed, is supposedly haunted!
“You know, I’ve heard that Studio 1A is haunted,” said Natalie Morales, wearing a black blouse with one shoulder exposed and accompanied with a high-waisted gold skirt ruffled out at the hips. “Matt [Lauer] once said he smelled roses very strongly, near the hallways. Apparently that’s the sign of someone trying to make contact from the spirit world,” she told the Transom, grinning.
“We had a guy come and do sort of like a spiritual, psychic reading. And he said, ‘Yes, I feel a strong presence here,’ so someone maybe has died in the building a long time ago,” Ms. Morales continued.
But when the Transom asked Mr. Roker about paranormal activities back at Studio 1A, he drew a blank.
“I’ve never heard that story! And I’ve never smelled roses, that’s for sure! I’ve smelled something, but not roses. …” he said. “She’s the investigative reporter”—pointing at Ann Curry—“ask her!”
Oh those crazy Today Show hosts. They are JUST LIKE real people!! This makes me want to watch them every morning.
