Former ‘Today’ Weatherman Willard Scott Marries at Age 80
April 02, 2014
Former Today show weatherman Willard Scott, 80, has married his longtime girlfriend, Paris Keena.
Today anchor Matt Lauer announced that Scott and Keena tied the knot in Fort Myers, Florida on Tuesday after being together for the past 11 years.
The two first met in 1977, when Paris and Scott worked for NBC’s Washington affiliate and they stayed in touch on and off over the years before reconnecting for good. As for any honeymoon plans, Paris told Today, “Our whole life has been a honeymoon.”
Scott — who has been a part of the Today show family for more than 30 years — turned over the daily weather duties to Al Roker in 1996. But he continues to appear on the show a few times a week via remote to keep up his tradition of sending happy birthday wishes to centenarians.
