AL Roker was replaced by a beloved co-star on the Today show on Monday.
The 69-year-old was missing for a special reason as Craig Melvin revealed his whereabouts.
Al was absent from the Today show and Today Third Hour on Monday.
Dylan Dreyer filled in for him and reported on the day’s weather.
During third period she was joined by Craig and Sheinelle Jones.
Al usually hosts with his three co-stars.
However, since he was traveling, Craig explained where Al was.
“Al is off because it’s his anniversary,” he let everyone know.
“It wasn’t a special anniversary, was it? I can’t remember what year it was,” Sheinelle said.
“Every year is special,” Craig said. “Every year with Al is special.”

No one replaced Al in the third period, leaving only three hosts.
Al has been married to Deobrah Roberts for 28 years.
They celebrated their anniversary on Saturday and are continuing the celebrations.
Deb shared photos on her Instagram story, giving fans a sneak peek into the spicy celebration.
First, the couple smiled at a photo Deborah took while they held up glasses of champagne.
Al was wearing a suit jacket and a black button-down shirt.
Deb wore a patterned, multi-colored dress.
She later posted a photo of the two champagne glasses sitting on a table.
The 62-year-old then shared a spicy photo of her hotel bed covered in rose petals.
The petals in the center formed the shape of a heart while others were scattered throughout.
The Good Morning America correspondent also shared a photo of a bathroom counter at the hotel with two towels monogrammed “A” and “D” on it.
There was a flower on the towels and behind it was a bottle of Lorenzo Villoresi Firenze body lotion.
“A BIG ADVENTURE”
Deb also shared pictures from her wedding day and throughout the years on her feed.
“Wow! It’s been 28 years. “We started this journey with a little nervousness, a lot of excitement and a heart full of hope,” the journalist captioned it post.
“And it was a great adventure. The last year has taught us to appreciate every moment. You’re mine… I’m yours. And where you are, I am too.”
Deb finished: “Happy anniversary, my love. Let’s keep making memories @alroker #happyanniversary #love #forever.”
There were many throwback photos, including one of the couple dancing at their wedding.
Deb has also posted pictures of her children as well as recent photos of them together.
Al also posted pictures on his Instagram to celebrate their special day.
He wrote on the post“28 years ago @debrobertsabc promised to be there for them, for better or for worse, for better or for worse. Good and bad times. But the greatest gift is the family she gave me. Happy anniversary, sweetheart.”
In the first photos, Al and Deb posed in their wedding attire, with big smiles on their faces, and they cut their cake in another.
In the picture from their last wedding anniversary, the couple watched the wedding while a photographer took a photo of them.
The meteorologist has also shared other photos of them over the years.
Some had their children – Nick and Leila – along with Al’s daughter Courtney, who is from a previous relationship.
Al has also shared other photos from recent years, including one with Barack and Michelle Obama.
