Al Roker, the weatherman for the "Today Show," has plans to launch a collection of apparel with coat maker Weatherproof. The line is tentatively called ‘Weatherman, The Al Roker Collection.’

At first, the weatherman-turned-fashion-designer title may sound scary, but Al Roker is not the first media personality to churn out a design line. Fox Minneapolis anchor Robyne Robinson has created a line of jewelry called Rox Minneapolis, which will be featured in the Spring 2010 collection by Project Runway Season 6 contestant Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman during New York Fashion Week.

At any rate, Roker is a nationally-known weatherman, so it should follow that The Al Roker Collection—full of weather-related apparel including rain jackets, coats, footwear, and cold-weather accessories—will be taken seriously in the fashion world. Right?
