Ashley Morrison Returns to WCBS as MoneyWatch Anchor

It’s been 10 days since Rob Morrison was arrested for allegedly choking his wife, CBS Money Watch anchor Ashley Morrison. One week ago, Rob resigned from WCBS as the scandal grew.

Ashley returned to her post yesterday on CBS 2 This Morning, formerly opposite her husband. Now occupied by Chris Wragge on a fill-in basis alongside Mary Calvi.

Last week, Rob took to social media and spoke to other outlets, including FishbowlNY, professing his innocence. Morrison’s attorney, Robert Skovgaard says the couple won’t be granting interviews for the foreseeable future.

“We have no further comment to make regarding Mr. Morrison.  The media need to let the Morrisons handle this personal, family matter privately.”

Rob Morrison faces a felony charge of strangulation. His next appearance in Stamford Superior Court is due on March 26.
