"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Field family who lost their legendary dad, Dr. Frank Field," Roker wrote online Sunday. "He was at WNBC when I started doing weekend weather,teaching me the ropes and the lay of the land."

Roker went on to wish Field well comparing him to longtime TODAY Show Meteorologist, Willard Scott.
