It's always nice to watch a professional with big dreams living up to his full potential. It's hard to say if that's the case with a man who studied meteorology and covered some of the biggest storms for a national news network, who will now spend his days talking about tabloid news and celebrity gossip.

To be fair, CNN weatherman Rob Marciano never quite looked like the guy who should be standing in front of a green screen and pointing at cold fronts. A source close to him was quoted as saying that Marciano had been looking to expand his reach beyond weather news.

Entertainment Tonight, the leader in entertainment news shows, has been searching for a new co-host since Mark Steines left the show this past summer. Marciano will be moving from Atlanta to Los Angeles to join Nancy O'Dell on the show.

CNN had nothing but good words to say, noting that "this is a terrific opportunity for Rob. We thank him for all his years of reporting for CNN and we wish him the best of luck."

Marciano's most recent work at CNN had included on-the-ground coverage of Hurricane Sandy. He was also in the thick of it for Hurricane Katrina.

"I am honored to be joining the distinguished and talented team at ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ all of whom are the gold standard in entertainment journalism," Marciano said in a statement.
