ABC weatherman Rob Marciano has reportedly been banned from the “Good Morning America” studio for nearly a year due to making a colleague feel uncomfortable. It is unclear what exactly happened, but sources suggest that he had been dealing with anger management issues. Marciano continues to provide weather reports for ABC News platforms, including “World News Tonight” and the field for “GMA”, but has not been allowed back in the Times Square Studios.
ABC weatherman Rob Marciano has not been allowed to report from the “Good Morning America” studio for nearly a year after he made a colleague feel uncomfortable and had reportedly been dealing with anger management issues while going through a divorce.
Sources have revealed that ABC weatherman Rob Marciano has been banned from the Times Square Studios for nearly a year after reportedly making a colleague feel uncomfortable. It is unclear exactly what happened between Marciano and his colleague, but one source claimed that he had been dealing with anger management issues while going through a divorce from his wife.
After the alleged incident, the network’s employee relations took Marciano off the air for a month, but “Good Morning America” executive producer Simone Swink still refuses to allow him back in the studio. While Marciano continues to provide weather reports on other ABC News platforms, including “World News Tonight,” he only appears on “GMA” when shooting from the field.
Swink’s appointment as executive producer followed the ousting of former boss Michael Corn amid claims that he sexually assaulted two women. Sources claim that Swink is being “extra cautious” and is focused on protecting the culture and enabling her team to focus on the work of news-gathering free from distraction.
A source familiar with the situation said that any decision made about the team is based on protecting the culture, and that Marciano continues to seek his old job back, but it seems that Swink is holding her ground and being protective of her team. Representatives for Marciano and “GMA” have not commented on the situation.
