Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes Show Support to Fired 'GMA' Meteorologist Rob Marciano

In a new episode of their 'Amy and T.J.' podcast, the former 'Good Morning America' anchors show sympathy to Rob as they can relate to what he's gone through.

AceShowbiz - Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes have weighed in on the firing of Rob Marciano, a longtime ABC News meteorologist. In a new episode of their "Amy and T.J." podcast, the former "Good Morning America" anchors showed sympathy to Rob as they could relate to what he's gone through.

"We were at a breakfast the other morning where somebody reminded us," T.J., who was fired from "GMA" alongside Amy after news of their romance broke, said in the May 3 episode. " 'Nobody leaves ABC News in a pretty fashion.' That's exactly what they said to us."

Amy chimed in, saying, "It's a tough situation." She added, "Yes, we have walked down that road and it's not an easy one and I know he also has-and I think he might still be-going through a divorce, so we know what it's like to have your entire life upended."

T.J. later gushed over Rob, calling him "one of the best guys" he's worked with. "He is one of the best guys I've ever seen in the field covering weather-he is just good," the former TV anchor raved.

He further divulged, "Obviously we don't know all the details and some of them that are out there are a little sketchy and some of them are salacious and tabloid-type, clickable headline stuff that we are not going to get into-but whatever it is, we hate to see someone who has been a friend and a colleague for a long time to end up in this position."

"It's not our place and we would never make it our place to comment specifically on any of the details," Amy added. The 51-year-old continued, "But we do know what it's like to have those headlines to be the subject of clickbait, and that's a tough position for anyone to be going through-especially someone who is a father of two."

T.J. echoed the sentiment, noting, "No matter what, we don't know all the details. It was not some defense of anything he has or hasn't done-it's just a matter of, you hate to see it end that way for somebody."

It was reported on April 30 that Rob was let go from his position at "ABC News" and "Good Morning America" after 10 years. The firing allegedly came after Rob had a "heated screaming match" with a "Good Morning America" producer. Meteorologist Ginger Zee later brought it to the attention of higher-ups due to Rob's alleged history of questionable workplace behavior. It was also said that Rob liked to "overshare" information about his divorce with female staffers in addition to his "ongoing" anger management issues.

However, PEOPLE recently reported that his co-workers found the firing "unexpected" and praised him for his positive image at work. "Rob is always positive, hands-on and never anything but professional," an insider told the publication. "People enjoy working with him and he's not difficult to work with."

The source additionally denied accusations saying that he had chronic temper issues and received complaints from female coworkers for making them uncomfortable. "The Rob Marciano being portrayed is not the Rob Marciano we know. Rob has always been nothing but professional. He is truly invested in his segments, cares a tremendous amount about his final work product," the source claimed.
