Rob Marciano Leaves CNN To Become ‘Entertainment Tonight’ Co-Host

CNN news and weather anchor Rob Marciano is leaving the cable channel to become the co-host of the long-running entertainment news program “Entertainment Tonight.”

Marciano will join Nancy O’Dell in Los Angeles starting in January. “ET” had been seeking a new co-host since Mark Steines left the program over the Summer. A source close to Marciano tells TVNewser that while he was happy at CNN, he had been looking to move beyond weather reporting, and into more general news. “ET,” which launched in 1981, is the gold standard for entertainment news shows, and routinely draws between four and five million viewers every day, far more than any program on cable news, except perhaps for “The O’Reilly Factor.”
