Willard Scott is saying goodbye to Today after 35 years with the NBC morning program, the show announced on Friday.

Scott semi-retired in 1996 after 16 years of being the show's weatherman. After Al Roker took over the weather for the show, Scott has since made regular appearances on Tuesdays and Thursdays for his 100th birthday salutes. He's been with NBC for a total of 65 years, starting as a page for the peacock network in 1950.

Aside from being a broadcast icon, Scott has also authored six books including, America Is My Neighborhood.

"He is literally my second dad. I love that man," said Al Roker in a tweet from the official Today account.

Scott's last day on the show will be Dec. 15, right before the holidays.
