There’s a reason ABC weatherman Rob Marciano hasn’t reported from the “Good Morning America” studio for nearly a year.
Multiple sources tell Page Six that Marciano was “banned” from Times Square Studios, where the show is taped daily, after he made a colleague feel uncomfortable last year.
“He was found to have done something… that was inappropriate, but he was punished for it and they still haven’t let him come back,” an insider told us.
It’s unclear what exactly happened between Marciano and his colleague, but another source told Us that he had been dealing with some anger management issues while going through a divorce from his wife, Eryn.
“He made people feel uncomfortable. There was a period when there were some problems, a series of alarming events,” the second source claimed.
We’re told the network’s employee relations took Marciano off the air for a month after the alleged incident with a female colleague, but “GMA” executive producer Simone Swink “still won’t allow him back in (the studio),” several months later.
“She’s no-nonsense and very serious. She’s focused on work and wants to keep (her staff) focused and happy. She’s very protective of her team,” the second source said.
Swink was named to the top job after former boss Michael Corn was ousted from the network amid allegations that he sexually assaulted two women. She has since “run a very tight ship” and doesn’t want anything to distract from the show, we hear.
“There were times when (Marciano) was very angry and angry … horrible behavior on his part. He was pulled out to deal with it and he’s come back,” the second source said.

Still, Swink appears to be holding firm and being “extra cautious” when “all he wants is his old job back and to be allowed back in,” the first source said.
Another source familiar with the situation said: “Any decision made about the team is based first and foremost on protecting the culture and enabling our people to focus on the work of news gathering – free from distraction.”
Meanwhile, Marciano continues to provide weather reports on other ABC News platforms, including its digital live streams and “World News Tonight,” which is taped in a different studio in New York.
He reports from the field every time he appears on “GMA” and will continue to not be allowed in the Times Square location, it appears.
A rep for Marciano and “GMA” did not comment.
