ABC News has made a significant decision regarding one of its familiar faces. Rob Marciano, the former meteorologist for ABC News and Good Morning America, is no longer with the company, according to a source.

Marciano’s departure follows reports of alleged inappropriate behaviors, which led to a temporary ban from the studio in New York City. Despite this, he continued to report the weather from outdoor locations, as reported by Page Six.

PEOPLE reached out to Marciano for comment, but as of now, there has been no response. Similarly, a representative for ABC News declined to comment on the matter.

Having joined ABC News as the senior meteorologist in July 2014, Marciano became a staple in delivering weather updates on Good Morning America. His official debut on the morning show occurred in September of the same year.

The news of his firing surfaces two years after Marciano’s divorce from his ex-wife Eryn Marciano, following an 11-year marriage. In a statement shared with PEOPLE at the time of the divorce filing, Marciano expressed the challenges they had faced as a couple.

“The last couple of years have been very difficult,” he revealed. “I didn’t want this and tried to save the marriage, but we are sadly divorcing. My focus now is on my kids.”

Marciano and Eryn, who married in November 2010, are parents to daughter Madelynn and son Mason. Despite their ongoing divorce proceedings, the former couple prioritized quality family time, treating their kids to a spring break trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Sharing moments from the vacation on social media, Marciano emphasized the importance of cherishing family moments amid challenging times. He later took some personal time off at the beach, sharing a reflective message on Instagram.

“In times of crisis, go fly a kite,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories, accompanied by a photo capturing his kite flying high against the backdrop of the serene beach.

Marciano’s departure from ABC News marks the end of an era for the network, leaving fans curious about the future of weather reporting on Good Morning America and beyond.
