Former NBC 30 anchor Rob Morrison had a serious brush with the law this weekend. Morrison was arrested on Sunday, Feb. 17, on charges of second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct following a domestic violence incident with his wife, Ashley. Ashley also worked at NBC30 – she did a brief reporting stint at the station. The couple lives in Darien. Here’s a scene from happier times.
After working as a morning anchor at NBC 30, Rob went on to anchor/reporter duties at WNBC-TV. He appeared regularly on NBC’s Weekend Today and MSNBC. He then moved on to WCBS-TV where he anchors the morning and noon newscasts.
His wife, Ashley Morrison, served as an air anchor/reporter with Bloomberg television (BTV) from 2007-2009. She is currently an anchor for CBS Moneywatch.

Dr. Phil goes behind the headlines of two popular weathermen who lost their jobs amid scandal. Former Philadelphia meteorologist John Bolaris says he’s become a laughingstock ever since he was drugged by two women and duped out of more than $43,000 while vacationing in Miami in 2010. He claims the media portrayed him as a womanizer instead of as the victim of an international crime ring. Find out what headline he says further humiliated him. Now unemployed, how can he regain his career and repair his reputation? Plus, hear from John’s fiancée, Erica, who recently created another scandal for John by posting racy Tweets on his Twitter account. How does she explain the posts? Then, Zoel says she made headlines when her online sex chat with a married Connecticut meteorologist went viral — and he was fired from his job. Zoel says the media has painted her as a “home wrecker” and a “slut” and that her relationship with her 21-year-old daughter, Kayla — whom she recently reunited with after 19 years — has been damaged as a result. Can Zoel repair her reputation and prove to Kayla that she can still be a trustworthy mom?
