LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The hosts of ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ has become an integral part of people’s lives and they love to start their day by seeing their favorite news presenters.

His place was taken by Ginger Zee, the chief meteorologist for ABC News, and fans have been wondering if they will ever see Marciano back in the studio.

For the uninitiated, Marciano is still a part of the weather team and primarily focuses on giving updates from ground zero, meaning the weather-centric host visits dangerous locations and provides updates from there. Also, there’s a reason why viewers don’t see Marciano in the studios anymore and the matter is much more complicated than people would expect it to be.
Why is Rob Marciano not allowed to enter ABC Studios?
According to a Page Six report in March 2023, Marciano was “banned” from ABC’s Times Square Studios after he allegedly made a female colleague uncomfortable last year. Although no one knows what Marciano did, an insider claimed that he was dealing with “anger management issues” because of the divorce from his wife, Eryn.
“He made people feel uncomfortable. There was a period where there were some issues, a number of alarming events,” the insider told Page Six.
Marciano was not allowed to enter the studios for one month and he was bound to come back for all the weather-centric updates. However, the report suggests that “GMA” executive producer Simon Swink was not allowing Marciano to enter the studios.
Now that fans have started asking questions about Marciano’s whereabouts, it would be interesting to see if he would be brought back to the studios for weather updates. As of now, he is visiting all the dangerous places to provide exclusive reports from ground zero.
