The “Today” show anchor is celebrating his 40th anniversary with the network on Friday, and his friends and colleagues at NBC put together a special video looking back on his career.

Roker reacted emotionally to the tribute live on “Today”, telling everyone, “From the moment I stepped at WKYC in Cleveland when it was owned by NBC, to getting a job at WNBC, and I thought I’d died and gone to heaven because my parents could actually turn on the TV and see me, to being here with all of you, it’s been an amazing ride.”
