The future of Rob Morrison on New York television, or any other market for that matter, is going to be difficult. But the New York Daily News reports the embroiled former WCBS/Channel 2 anchor may be planning his next move: a tell-all book with hopes of turning it into a TV series.
Not so fast. Morrison tells FishbowlNY exclusively that there is no merit to that claim.
“I have no plans to write a tell-all,” Morrison told us, “and I have no idea where that story came from… I swear to God.”
The Daily News quoted a close friend of Morrison’s as saying, “Rob isn’t the sort of guy that gives in and goes away. He’s a fighter.”
“This is his chance to tell his side of the story firsthand. He’s already started writing,” the friend reportedly said.
Morrison, though, refutes the quote. “Definitely, not a good friend… [giving] that kind of trash,” Morrison said.
In February, Morrison was forced to resign from WCBS morning anchor duties after an alleged incident of domestic violence with his wife, CBS MoneyWatch anchor Ashley Morrison.
Morrison did take up writing outside of broadcasting when he left WNBC in 2008. The News says he had hopes of turning “Daddy Diaries – Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Anchorman” into a weekly TV series.
While Morrison is overall laying low about the case, he did want to discuss his seven-year-old.
“My son had the worst February vacation of his life,” Morrison said. “He couldn’t go outside of the house because the paparazzi would just camp there. The poor kid couldn’t go outside and play with his friends… He was scared. He’s confused. He doesn’t understand what’s going on.”
Morrison is due back in Stamford Superior Court later this month.
