Rob Marciano

Rob Marciano is a news and weather anchor for CNN Worldwide based in CNN's world headquarters in Atlanta, who also serves as an environmental correspondent and the primary weather correspondent for American Morning. Marciano joined CNN in May 2003.

Marciano’s enterprise reporting contributed to the network’s comprehensive coverage of the 2005 hurricane season. His reporting during the networks award-winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina led to Marciano being deployed to the scene of other extreme weather events and natural disasters to provide network coverage, such as the very active tornado season and the San Diego Firestorm in 2007. Marciano also covered the 2009 Los Angeles Wildfires.

Marciano’s months of reporting from the Gulf on the Gulf of Mexico Oil disaster garnered him exclusive access to a U.S. Coast Guard Skimmer and wildlife rescue outposts. In his documentary Rescue: Saving the Gulf, Marciano conveyed a first hand account on what it takes to skim the oil from the ocean on the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Elm, while also decontaminating beaches and rescuing animals fouled by oil. Before joining CNN, Marciano served as chief meteorologist for KATU-TV and 750 KXL News Radio in Portland, OR. From 1994 to 1997, he worked as morning and then chief meteorologist for KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, LA.
