Reports say ABC News is firing meteorologist Rob Marciano over “anger management issues.”

ABC News has reportedly fired longtime meteorologist Rob Marciano for misconduct.

The meteorologist – who has been leading the outlet's weather coverage for 10 years – is said to have previously received warnings over his behaviour, and is said to have been sidelined due to “anger management issues”.

According to the New York Post And other US media outlets The network released Marciano, 55, on Tuesday, though it was not clear whether a specific event led to his dismissal.

He was named one of the top meteorologists by ABC in 2014.

In March 2023, Page Six reported that he was banned from the Good Morning America (GMA) studios in Times Square, New York, after making people feel “uncomfortable.”

“It turns out he did something…that was inappropriate, but he was punished for it, and they still won't let him back,” an insider told the outlet at the time.

Another source told Page Six: “It made people feel uncomfortable. There was a period of some issues and a number of troubling events.”

Marciano has not responded to the reports publicly or online, and was still sharing weather content from ABC News on his personal Instagram story Tuesday morning.

The Independent ABC News has reached out for comment on reports of Mr. Marciano's firing.

Mr. Marciano has previously reported on weather on other ABC News platforms including the live digital broadcast – World News Tonight – and provides field reports for GMA.
