Utica got a shout-out on national TV this morning as Al Roker on the Today Show selected us as the Weather City of the Day.

The quick segment showed a view of the Utica skyline, and mentioned WKTV-TV and Utica Club Ale.

How is Roker so well versed in Utica? He's no stranger to the area having attended Oswego State. (Pro Tip: head to the Oswego Sub Shop and ask for the Al Roker Special!)
