'Today' show's Willard Scott weds girlfriend

TODAY Show's Willard Scott Marries Longtime Girlfriend

NEW YORK (AP) - NBC says 80-year-old Willard Scott has tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend.

The veteran "Today" show personality and Paris Keena were wed Tuesday in Fort Myers, Fla. They have been together for about 11 years, "Today" host Matt Lauer said in sharing the news on Wednesday morning's telecast.

The jovial Scott, billed as the program's weather reporter and centenarian, has been a part of "Today" since 1980.

Lauer framed the announcement as "another surprise wedding" in the "Today" family.

Last month, co-anchor Savannah Guthrie made an on-the-air announcement of her marriage to communications strategist Mike Feldman two days earlier. She also told viewers she was four months pregnant.

What's even more amazing is that he's only got 20 more years until SHE can congratulate HIM on hitting the century mark, and I think Willard, of all people on TODAY, has a chance at making it!

I was very sorry when he left the Today Show. I never understood why.

No matter how bad the weather was, the minute Willard came on, everything was sunny and bright.
