Sad news for the world tonight. Willard Scott, who was known for being a weatherman on NBC’s Today Show and the OG Ronald McDonald, has died. He was 87 years old.

The news was confirmed via Al Roker’s Instagram page, where he left a touching tribute to the legend.

“We lost a beloved member of our @todayshow family this morning,” he wrote. “Willard Scott passed peacefully at the age of 87 surrounded by family, including his daughters Sally and Mary and his lovely wife, Paris. He was truly my second dad and am where I am today because of his generous spirit. Willard was a man of his times, the ultimate broadcaster. There will never be anyone quite like him.”
