On the heels of revealing his exit from the syndicated newsmagazine "Entertainment Tonight," one of the show's co-hosts, Rob Marciano, has landed a new job. ABC News announced that Marciano is joining the division as senior meteorologist.
ABC News President James Goldston announced the hire in a memo today to staffers.
"A veteran weather anchor and an award-winning journalist, Rob will join 'GMA Weekend' and report on the latest weather headlines throughout the week as well as partner with our talented Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee and the Extreme Weather Team for weather coverage across all ABC News broadcasts and platforms," Goldston said in the memo.
Marciano has been a co-anchor on "ET" since January 2013. Previously, he worked at CNN as a news anchor and weather anchor.
"From tornadoes and blizzards to avalanches and mudslides, Rob has covered some of the biggest weather events and natural disasters in recent memory," Goldston said in the memo. "His riveting reports from the field during Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill were recognized with the prestigious Peabody Award."
