Robert Mark "Rob" Marciano (born June 25, 1968)[1] is an American journalist and meteorologist who gained prominence as a meteorologist and occasional reporter and substitute anchor for CNN Worldwide in their Atlanta headquarters.[2]

Marciano was born in Glenville, Connecticut,[1] and received a bachelor's degree in meteorology from Cornell University.[2] He is of Italian and German ancestry.[3]

Before joining CNN in May 2003, he served as chief meteorologist for KATU-TV and 750 KXL News Radio in Portland, Oregon. From 1994 to 1997, he worked as morning and then chief meteorologist for KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, Louisiana and later served as a weather anchor for WVIT Connecticut News 30 in West Hartford, Connecticut.[2]

On November 12, 2012, the producers of Entertainment Tonight announced that Marciano would become its new co-anchor in January 2013, ending a months-long search for a permanent replacement for Mark Steines.[4] Marciano bid farewell to CNN viewers on Early Start and Starting Point on December 21, 2012.
