New York—“Today Show” weatherman Al Roker has already taken to social media, urging his legion of fans to vote for him in the annual Hat Person of the Year contest, sponsored by The Headwear Association.
While THA’s Headwear Hall of Fame inductees have been announced, the trade association for hats, caps, etc. is urging consumers to vote for their favorite for Hat Person of the Year, an honor bestowed upon those who are proponents of headwear and are often seen wearing hats.
The 2015 nominees include Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Jessica Alba and Roker. (Vote at http://hatperson.wecanvote.org/html/index.php/)
