'Today' show's Willard Scott weds


NEW YORK -- NBC says 80-year-old Willard Scott has married his longtime girlfriend.

The veteran "Today" show personality and Paris Keena were wed Tuesday in Fort Myers, Fla. They have been together for about 11 years, "Today" host Matt Lauer said during Wednesday morning's telecast.

The jovial Scott has been a part of "Today" since 1980.

Lauer framed the announcement as "another surprise wedding" in the "Today" family.

Last month, co-anchor Savannah Guthrie made an on-the-air announcement of her marriage to communications strategist Mike Feldman. She also told viewers she was four months pregnant.
