Since joining the network he has reported on nearly every natural disaster to hit the United States. Marciano has covered tornadoes, floods and blizzards; even erupting volcanoes surrounding towns in Hawaii.

On the ground before, during and after landfall, Marciano covered the 2017 hurricanes that devastated Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. During ABC News’ coverage of the Great American Eclipse, Marciano was live on the Oregon coast at the start of the path of totality.
Before joining ABC News, Marciano was the co-host of “Entertainment Tonight,” where he interviewed hundreds of celebrities including full-hour specials with Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry.

Marciano’s reports for CNN from the field during Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico helped garner a Peabody Award. He also hosted primetime specials including “Rescue: Saving the Gulf,” where he worked side by side with the heroes who saved wildlife, skimmed oil and cleaned up the beach during the worst oil disaster in U.S. history.
