NBC Weathergirl Caught 'Dissing' Al Roker on Live TV

6/24/2011 8:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Today's forecast ... DRAMA!!!!!

0624_weather_girl_diss_launch

Local NBC weathergirl Elita Loresca issued an apology live on the air this morning ... after she was caught talking "smack" about Al Roker when she thought her microphone was off. 

Loresca said Roker was "such a kook." 

She later was clearly forced to deliver a painfully awkward apology. 

But here's the deal -- there's nothing wrong with what she said ... AND ... Al is kind of a kook, right?

UPDATE: Al finally tweeted ... apparently, all is forgiven. "So Elita Loresca of KNBC called me a kook during a cut in. I know Elita. She was joking. And some mornings I am kooky. No big whoop."

Another black lie... and NOT living up to it. Play it again.. and again... She said that with Feeling and not playfully or gleefully folks. It's really not a big deal... and why dig a deeper hole. Besides.. everyone knows Al is a kook anyways. LOL Only, she meant it!

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Kook? Who's she calling kook? Raid Granma's wardrobe lately, wackjob? Btw if you want to sing, AI is taking auditions. ;)

Al Roker IS a kook to say the least. Who even watches him?

I'm offended Al Roker is on TV doing *******tyle interviews when he does talk to someone. Your a fat, black man who doesn't do anything worth while on the TV show. Kind of reminds me of the spoof of scream where the black guy (might be a wayns brother) says oh man I'm the token black man. Yup, that's Al Roker for you.

By the way, saying if I offended you, when you apologize, is not an apology at all. That's what everyone chooses to say when they get their hand smacked by someone higher up.

Fire her ass, cuz she can't sing!
You call that an apology?
Its a good thing that 'Kook' is a bigger man & accepted her lame-ass apology!

She was being playful. I'm sure she would've used a different word(s) if she wanted to be offensive. Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.

It happens all the time on NBC. NBC has the worst sound direction on TV. They screw up so much - mostly using the wrong mics, or dead mics etc. on a segment. I can barely stand to listen the the NBC broadcasts because it happens ALL THE TIME. Their technical directors must be relatives using their R-cards. Mistakes like that should NEVER happen and if it does, someone should be fired or retrained.

They should have stuck with Rachel Boesing! This chick is a turn-off, and that's what I've done, turned off KNBC.

Not sure she has room to throw rocks at Al. Has she taken a look at her profile lately? I can't tell if she's pregnant or just a bit on the fluffy side.
