Things We Saw Today: Legendary ‘Today Show’ Weatherman Willard Scott Passes

With a name like Smuckers...

If you grew up watching The Today Show every morning, chances are you remember weatherman Willard Scott and his iconic Smuckers birthday tributes to our countries centenarians. Unfortunately the Today Show announced this morning that Scott has passed away at the age of 87. His longtime co-hosts paid tribute to him, with Al Roker referring to him as a “second dad” and Katie Couric saying “He played such an outsized role in my life & was warm & loving & generous off camera as he was on.” An era of morning news has ended and Scott will be truly missed.
