It is safe to assume that if Jay-Z uses your name in a song, you’ve reached a pretty significant peak in culture. Al Roker is among the people that have reached that status. Outside of the positive mention in Jay-Z’s song, “Hate,” Roker is one of television’s most applauded news personalities.

Self-proclaiming himself as an institution, Al Roker is a native New Yorker that has been in front of television audiences for over 40 years. The 68-year-old hosts the third hour of “TODAY” and has earned 14 Emmy Awards for his work on the show.

Roker is also the author of 13 books. His most recent, “You Look So Much Better In Person – True Stories of Absurdity and Success,” is a personal collection of essays noting lessons learned throughout his life.

Being on “TODAY” and writing books isn’t his only claim to fame. You can hear his voice on “Off The Rails” on TODAY Show Radio and catch him in the CEO chair as the lead of AL Roker Entertainment.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Al Roker’s massive media career has amassed him a net worth of $70 million.

And the noted family man has three children who aren’t just benefitting from his wealth but charting their own paths.
