TODAY anchors reveal their role models...

It's important to have role models in life. Growing up, I always looked up to my dad.  Well, my dad and Kirby Puckett. He was the epitome of a baseball player -- athletic, smart.  He was not only a leader in the clubhouse, but in the community as well.  The same can be said about my dad. Except for maybe that whole athletic thing (sorry dad). But he served as the perfect example when it came to a work ethic that I still strive to duplicate.
Everyone has these mentors in their life, including our anchors here at TODAY. So, I decided to ask the TODAY family in this week's Getting to Know TODAY: Who's your role model? Some of their answers may surprise you...

Be sure to tell us about your role models below! 

Don't forget to add your ideas for future "Getting to Know TODAY" questions as well. Hopefully we'll pick yours.As always, check the allDAY blog every Tuesday to learn the latest answers to all your burning questions about the TODAY family!

Have a great week, and be sure to give a quick thanks to that role model in your life, regardless of their connection to you or...their athletic ability.
