Al Roker is back and resources ave reported to TMZ that Al will be back in the anchor chair during the 9 AM hours, after being replaced by Megyn Kelly last year. Sources close to the ABC says, they will go back to its true formula of using existing NBC talent for the 9 AM show, and Al will be a big part of that.
