Days after the news broke, Swetha Sharma, who previously worked at the same company as Marciano, claimed that the 55-year-old meteorologist had a reputation for having a short fuse and being easily angered.

"He was nice, but that also wasn't everyone's experience with him," Sharma told PEOPLE. "There were always stories about him [and] about his temper."

Sharma also said that while some of the staff had positive experiences working with Marciano, others who regularly worked with the meteorologist or "witnessed his behavior" were not "surprised by any of this."

Furthermore, other reports claim that Marciano had an ongoing feud with 'Good Morning America''s weekday meteorologist Ginger Zee.

According to a source who spoke with The New York Post, Marciano had a “hot temper,” which caused issues with Zee, though the source claims she was equally capable of being “nasty."

“I think she brought out the worst in him. I’m not giving him a pass,” the source said. “It’s sad because they are two people who are really into the science of the weather. Unfortunately, their personalities didn’t work.”

Another source told the outlet, “She treated him as a beta and she was the alpha, but they were much more peers in terms of experience, more than Ginger was with Sam [Champion].”

The source added, "There were times when [Marciano] was very cranky and angry … unsavory behavior on his part. He was pulled off to deal with it and he’s been back."

"Rob is always positive, hands-on, and never anything but professional," the source told PEOPLE. "People enjoy working with him, and he's not difficult to work with."

The source called the reports against Marciano "vicious," and they, along with other colleges, were "always happy to see they were assigned" to work with Marciano and that the "Rob Marciano being portrayed is not the Rob Marciano we know."
