This is strange. Ever since Lisa Kearney, the new sportscaster, started working on the early morning show, it has been obvious that Rob is smitten with her. She's very busty and good looking. And of course, blonde. Lo and behold, Ashley started doing frequent spots on the telecast. Softball items about entertainment and finance. There did appear to be friction between them. He's such an easy going, affable guy on air. She comes off as an insecure and controlling harpy. Not surprised to hear that he cheats on her. I always find her bad nose job a distraction. The way he talks about his son it's obvious he is in love with his kid. The whole incident is so sad. And this will really damage him at CBS even though the show gets good ratings.

He was fired from NBC several years ago and he had a hard time finding a job. He has said that he found it really difficult being a househusband while unemployed.
Now that he finally found a good job and buying a fancy new house, he chokes his wife?

r17, WCBS-2 did report the story. During the early and late evening newscasts.
|by Anonymous||reply 46||02/19/2013|
The New York Post goes into more detail with this story. The couple have been married for ten years. He left WNBC in 2008 because the wife suspected him of having an affair with an intern. If he left then it was probably true. He was a stay at home Dad for more than a year. He was hired by CBS in 2009 as a substitute anchor and joined their early morning newscast in 2010 after Maurice DuBois was promoted to evening anchor. In 2009, Rob was arrested for assaulting Ashley, but the charges were dropped. The NYPD has seven domestic dispute calls on record between 2003 and 2009, but these were for verbal arguments and no charges were filed. Several months ago, another domestic abuse report was filed charging that he physically assaulted her, but the charges were dropped and this never made the news. The mother-in-law said that he sustained the injuries to his face because her daughter fought back when he tried to strangle her. She said he was probably drunk. Asked why Ashley has never left her husband the mother-in-law said "She's in fear". I don't buy that. I think if anything, she's the one always ginning up the situation until it reaches critical mass. She clearly has no problem ruining their lives, let alone his employment opportunities, with her jealousy and insecurity. In a way, it allows her to have full control of the situation. She outs him as an adulterer, causing him to have to quit his job. Can you imagine the drama she created at the station over the intern? She becomes the sole bread winner. He's always at home with the kid. She can keep constant tabs on him and cuckold him for ruining them financially and professionally. Once he gets the job with CBS he has the upper hand again. So, she makes sure she gets some softball segments on his show so she can keep tabs on him. Once again, bringing tension and drama to the workplace. And the weirdness on air between them started to be noticable when Lisa Kearney joined the show. She's recreating the situation at NBC all over again. And she will be considered the victim, yet again. Why he stays is another matter. I'd say he stays because of his son.

And yet she stays, r49. And moves to Darien, Conn. with the man she lives in FEAR of. She has options. She has a career of her own. She doesn't need to stay with him for finanical reasons. They have been having trouble in the marriage since they were first married. He cheats on her. And beats her. And yet, she decides to have a child with the man she lives in FEAR of. Something is not what it seems in this story. She can take half the blame for what ever happens in that marriage. If you watch the show then you know he loves his kid like crazy. That is probably why he stays. Why does SHE?

Looks like Rob is getting fired from WCBS over the "incident" - actually, he apparently LIED when he called in sick this morning (did no one at WCBS see the front page of the NY POST or Daily News?)
That'll do it for his credibility in this market - he might show up on PIX11 (they'll take anybody's leftovers) sometime down the road, but otherwise he's toast.
(and for the poster who asked me what happens when he drinks too much - the other answers in this thread have already answered that question).

R50, she thinks she deserves him. There's nearly always a history of mental and emotional abuse before the physical abuse begins. By the time the hitting and choking start, the victim believes she or he is worthless and deserves to live this way.

I remember very clearly how the reporters at WNBC used to tease Rob for being a bachelor who never seemed to ever have a date then "poof!",all of a sudden he was married to Ashley. So I'm not surprised that they've had marital troubles since the very beginning of their marriage.
Did they every specify the sex of the intern he was alleged to have bonked?

It was a woman, R74. She later got a job as a reporter on NY1. Jennifer something - she's no longer in the NY market.
And R73, since the beating occurred at the Morrisons' home in Darien, CONNECTICUT, NYS law doesn't apply....
By the way, if you're wondering why we're not covering this story (I notice both WNBC and Morrison's own WCBS news are), Bill Ritter made a big speech about it being a "Family issue" and asked that we not cover it out of respect for Rob's son.

Anchor’s ‘killer’ ravings
By LAUREL BABCOCK in Stamford, Conn., and DAN MANGAN in New York
Last Updated: 4:02 AM, February 20, 2013

A shocking Connecticut police report reveals a dark, violent side of veteran local anchorman Rob Morrison that has long been masked by his television veneer.
The WCBS/Channel 2 newsman drunkenly told cops on the day of his domestic violence arrest that he would kill his wife if they let him go — and he has previously threatened to murder their young son if she ever leaves him, according to the report obtained by The Post.
“I can’t go home tonight man, I’m f--king killing her!” a vodka-fueled Morrison, 44, slurred to a cop booking him Sunday for allegedly throttling his wife, Ashley, at their Darien home.
He also taunted his arresting officers, dubbing one cop “Sergeant Douchebag” and daring them to make his handcuffs tighter, the report says.
Ashley, 40, an anchor for “CBS Money,” bashed Morrison in the face with a remote control to stop him from choking her with both hands on the couch, cops said.
That’s how he ended up with a bloody gash on his nose in his mug shot.
The petite, 115-pound blonde was so “distressed, visibly shaken, and clearly in fear of her husband” that she refused to write out a statement against him, cops wrote. She also would not allow them to photograph red marks on her neck.
Ashley’s brother, Dr. Gregory Risk, told police that Morrison once threatened the couple’s 7-year-old son, Jack.
“G. Risk stated that in the past R. Morrison commented to him that if A. Morrison leaves him he would shoot their son in front of her and then shoot her,” police wrote.
Cops notified Connecticut Child Protective Services about “suspected child abuse and neglect” at the home, which automatically triggered an investigation.
But sources told The Post that Ashley is also confrontational — and that she got him fired as morning news anchor at WNBC/Channel 4 in 2008.
WNBC refused to renew his lucrative contract when Ashley e-mailed about 100 people in the newsroom, accusing them of being complicit in his suspected affair with an intern.
“You know that if I go public, it is going to make everybody at Channel 4 look bad,” she wrote.
Sources close to Rob Morrison say he’s convinced the arrest will now cost him his job at WCBS.
The handsome, 180-pound ex-Marine was arraigned in Stamford Superior Court yesterday on charges of strangulation, threatening and disorderly conduct.
A judge ordered the “News This Morning” host Morrison to stay at least 100 yards away from Ashley outside the office, and barred him from contacting her or going to their million-dollar home.
“I did not choke my wife. I have never laid hands on my wife,” Morrison, who remains free on $100,000 bail, told reporters before his arraignment.
“I love my wife more than anything,” said Morrison, whose nose and lip were still scarred.
Ashley was not in court. Her mother, Martha Risk, told cops during the Sunday morning blow-up that Morrison called her to say, “Your daughter is crazy, we have to do something with her,” the police report said.
Risk said she had begged her daughter to leave Morrison, but the long-suffering wife feared he “would do something to her and their son,” the report said.
When cops got to the Morrison house around 1:30 a.m., an “extremely intoxicated” Rob greeted them at the door, blood dripping down his nose and lip, and tried to stop them from entering.
Morrison called the arresting officers “f--king a--hole cops.”
When asked if his cuffs were too tight, he “stated that he wanted them tighter,” according to the police report.
Judge Kenneth Povadator said the police report “not only reflects a serious incident, it reflects the likelihood of a serious history . . . If I’m going to make a mistake, I’m going to err on the side of safety.”
Morrison apologized to the cops in his statement to reporters, saying: “I regret deeply how I acted toward the Darien Police Department.”
His lawyer, Robert Skovgaard, did not comment on the contents of the police report

Yikes. He threatened to kill their son in front of her if she left him. Child Protective Services did an investigation. The last call to the house for a domestic dispute was on Jan. 19th. He resigned from the anchor job on WCBS2 today. I'd say she really has reason to fear him now. I bet she goes back to him. These two cray crays are in it for the long haul. At least until the son gets old enough to beat the shit out of him for abusing his Mother. And winds up an alcoholic abuser himself. Sad.

He had great rapport with John Eliot, the weatherman, and also the brunette female traffic reporter. He seemed to be smitten with Lisa Kearney, the sportscaster. What am I going to do now for my news fix in the morning? Damn Julia Roberts and her shitty film!

I agree in Chicago we had a sports caster Mike Barz. He then went to ABC Network and became a weatherman, then he was accused of sexually harassing a woman. So he came back to Chicago only on FOX WFLD.
Then he sexually harassed another woman, got suspended, then he did it AGAIN, got fired. Now he works in Jacksonville, FL.

You may be right about the other woman being Jennifer Rainville, r91. She wrote her first book in 2011. It is about a woman who works behind the scenes in television news and the New York news anchor she has a torrid affair with. She said although the characters are "fictional" she used her own experiences in the news business as the basis for the book. It's called Trance of Insignificance and it's out in paperback. She said it was a "juicy, fun read for those in the business". Hmmm. Think I'll look this up on Amazon.

If she doesn't leave him after it went public that he threatened to kill his son then she will have no credibility and will lose whatever sympathy and support she is receiving from the public. Based on recent statements that he has made she is going to refuse to co-operate with law enforcement and the court and will whitewash what really happened and refuse to press charges in the hope of helping him getting his job back at WCBS. She is just as neurotic and damaged as he is. This will be the second time he's lost his job because of their family drama. It's as if she wanted him to lose his job again so she has control of where he goes and who he sees. And being the breadwinner gives her a lot of control. He needs to leave her. Deal with the alcoholism, anger issues and move on. He might be able to salvage a career in a smaller market where he is not known. He's a creep but she really doesn't come off smelling like a rose in the whole sordid mess. Back in 2008, when she suspected him of being unfaithful,, she e-mailed a hundred co-workers at WNBC and told them they would be seen as complicit in his affair with Jennifer Rainville, and WNBC would not look good if the affair went public. WNBC refused to renew his contract after she did that. What crazy bitch does that?

They both sound nuts. I'm surprised WNBC didn't can her too after that email stunt. It goes beyond unprofessional; she dragged the whole station into their messy marital problems.
Local TV news is a slimy business filled with sycophants, lunatics and ruthless corporate climbers. I would know, I worked in it for 15 years. On-air personalities (particularly anchors and the most popular and attractive rising stars) are afforded great prestige, deference and freedom within the organization, which most of them abuse because they have enormous egos. As long as they look sunny and upbeat on the air, keep bringing in ratings and their personal lives don't become news stories themselves, management would let them get away with murder.

It is amazing to me that he could have gotten fired for this and then the government would have given him unemployment.

You can't get unemployment if you're fired for cause.
When you file for unemployment claiming a layoff, the agency checks with the company you've been fired from, and they can kibosh it.

Sure he'd have gotten unemployment. What he did took place on his own time. To show denial, CBS would have to prove that they would fire anyone who worked for them, for merely getting arrested.
In reality what really happened was he was asked to resign and given a generous severance package.
He was told if he resigned he'd get this, if not they would simply cut all his air time, give him crap jobs and make his life miserable.
That's what "really" happened.

This story is getting really juicy. The New York Post and the New York Daily News have outed Jennifer Rainville as one of the other women he had affairs with while at WNBC, but the twist to the story is he was engaged to Rainville before he met and married Ashley, and he had an affair with Ashley while engaged to Rainville! He also had an affair with a younger woman, possibly the intern, after he married and when the wife complained to station management, he told them that the young woman was actually the aggressor in the relationship and he filed a sexual harassment suit against the woman! The media is not giving out her name because she still works in media in NYC. After he married Ashley, he resumed his relationship with Rainville. The novel, Trance in Insignificance, is a veiled account ot their relationship, even though Rainville claims the characters are fictitious. He sounds like a pathological liar as well as an alchoholic and cheater. This guy coasted on his nice guy image for a long time. And that appears to be all it was. An image. Can't say that the wife is scott free of blame. He cheated on a woman he was engaged to with her. And she does sound like she may swing first in some of those domestic disputes. One thing I'll say for this story, it has pushed fucking Beyonce' off the front page of both these newspapers.

Please, r141. The News and the Post were running full page articles about her prior to the Superbowl and for the past three weeks, as well as teasers with photos, on their front pages. It was total media over kill. I'm sure the News will soon announce their contest to win tickets to one of her concerts here in New York, but for now, I'm grateful to open the paper and be Beyonce' free.

He started physically abusing her three months after they were married and they have been married eleven years?
Yeah. This sounds like a healthy relationship. He wants to stay married for his son's sake. Why not? Living with those two his whole life, the damage is already done. Poor kid.
He sounds deeply alcoholic (Problems stemming from booze? Go to a bar, you'll feel better. It's a great way to handle things.)
I can't imagine who would hire him now.
|by Anonymous||reply 148||02/22/2013|
It sounds like they both have a problem with alcohol. She comes off as very jealous and insecure and has an unhealthy obsession with his fidelity issues. If she knowingly had an affair with him while he was engaged to Jennifer Rainville then she shouldn't have been surprised when he fucked around on her. The twist to the story is how the ex-fiance had a revenge affair with him after he got married. And then wrote a thinly veiled novel about the whole sordid affair. Men like him like playing games and he appears to know what buttons to push to get the wife enraged. They probably have the same argument over and over again about his cheating that escalates into these drunken wrestling matches. He calls her family members to complain about her crazy, paranoid behavior and she calls the cops. When it looks like the cops are going to take the situation seriously and charge and arrest him, she recants her story. She probably does the same thing with her family which is why the dysfunctional relationship has lasted as long as it has. He comes out the winner in all of this. He either gets divorced, which is what he really wants, or the wife winds up looking like a jealous, crazy harpy who is obsessed with him, which is what he wants us to think. It doesn't sound like losing his job is tearing him up. It probably interfered with his drinking. And this boy likes his liquor.

The New York Post is running an article that claims the wife had his car bugged and she caught him and the younger mistress, the intern, on tape talking about sex toys and going to a sex shop to buy them. Sounds like the wife has been using blackmail about their unsavory private lives to keep him in line. No wonder he drinks.

If that rumor is true then they can kiss off about half their viewers. He's a clown. Chris Wragge is doing just fine anchoring the early show and everyone on the show looks relieved to be working with him. I didn't see it, but the local NY Post ran a blurb that said the wife, Ashley Morrison, returned to the WCBS2 show on Monday. They need to give her the heave ho, too. Let her keep the MoneyWatch gig but find someone else to do the financial segments on the local broadcast. Otherwise, people will just tune in to see if she looks beat up. And the lead in banter with the anchors will be beyond awkward. BTW, I just received my copy of Rainville's novel from Amazon. I love trashy reads, and since I live in New York and watched Rob on the news, it will be fun to get some inside dish from the woman he jilted for Ashley.

This story is New York centric and so has a short shelf life. Barring him getting drunk and acting out in public or showing up at their house with a gun, I doubt we will be commenting on this story after the March 26th court date. Ashley has probably recanted her story. Of course, given their volatile marital history, the Prosecuter can go ahead with the case and force her to testify, if there is reason to believe that Morrison poses a danger to her or their son.

I hear he is still unemployed as a journalist and now came OUT as gay (or bisexual) depending on what story you hear or see. CNN and TMZ were the first to air the story this week. Apparently, that was a BIG part of the problems he had in his marriage. His wife found out he was doing dudes on the side....and didn't want an "open" marriage or bisexual husband. He still is very hot...and the gays loved him when on TV at WNBC-4. I just do not get it, though ? Was is a bisexual man automatically a "throw-away husband" in this society, but a bisexual female arouses the husband...and society condones it as cool, exciting and interesting ? It is 2015, have we not learned that homosexuals and bisexuals are only guilty of being human ?

Have not heard a single thing about Rob Morrison coming out or being gay.
His career in journalism especially as a highly paid news anchor is over for the foreseeable future. Maybe twenty or so years ago when scandal could be covered up things might be different. But in today's 24/7 instant media society any place that hired him would receive instant negative Facebook and Tweets forcing them to back down.
Some things are just unforgivable; look at what happened to Tex Antoine...
