Longtime ABC News and ‘Good Morning America’ Meteorologist Exits After 10 Years

Rob Marciano, the seasoned meteorologist with ABC News, has departed from the network. The precise cause for his departure remains unclear. However, reports from last year suggested that he had been restricted from appearing at Good Morning America’s Times Square studios following an incident that made a colleague uncomfortable.

Before joining ABC News, Marciano, aged 55, amassed experience at various local television and radio stations across the nation. He also served as a meteorologist and field reporter at CNN.

In January 2013, he made the move to Entertainment Tonight, where he co-hosted both a 30-minute and 60-minute program for nearly two years. He later transitioned to ABC News in late 2014.

During his tenure at ABC, Marciano delivered weather updates for World News Tonight and the weekend edition of Good Morning America, a role formerly held by Ginger Zee.

Prior to his official departure, Page Six revealed that Marciano had been barred from the GMA studios due to what was described as “inappropriate” conduct.

“He made people feel uneasy. There was a period where there were some issues, several concerning incidents,” a source disclosed to the outlet.

Marciano’s termination comes two years following the divorce filing by his ex-wife, Eryn. The pair, who have two children together, had been married for 11 years.

“The past few years have been incredibly challenging,” he stated at the time. “This wasn’t what I wanted, and I tried to salvage the marriage, but unfortunately, we’re going through a divorce. Right now, my priority is my children.”

In September 2023, Somara Theodore assumed Marciano’s position on the weekend edition of GMA. Despite this transition, Marciano assured that he wasn’t leaving the scene; rather, he expressed anticipation for an “exciting new project” with NatGeo.
