#ROKERTHON entering its final hours

#ROKERTHON entering its final hours

NEW YORK (NBC) - NBC's Al Roker is getting close to setting a Guinness World Record.

Roker is trying to break the record for the longest, uninterrupted weather broadcast with the 34-hour "ROKERTHON".

The marathon weather broadcast has a charitable purpose.  Its aim is to raise money for the USO.

Now, the question everyone has been asking.  Does Roker get any breaks?

He gets five minutes for every hour he's on the air.  Or he can save up the time and take a long break.

The ROKERTHON began Wednesday night at 10 pm EST and will wrap up at 8 am Friday morning.

If you'd like to check in on Al's progress,

to watch him live.
