NEW YORK (AP) - Willard Scott, the beloved weatherman who charmed viewers of NBC’s “Today” show with his self-deprecating humor and cheerful personality, has died.
He was 87.

Al Roker, his successor on the morning news show, announced that Scott died peacefully Saturday morning, surrounded by family. No further details were released.

Roker called Scott “a man of his times, the ultimate broadcaster.” Scott began his 65-year career NBC as an entry-level page and rose to become the weather forecaster on the network's flagship morning show for more than three decades.
