Police arrested WCBS/Channel 2 anchor Rob Morrison after he choked his fellow-journalist wife, Ashley Morrison, at their tony Connecticut home.
Ashley is anchor for “CBS MoneyWatch”.
Rob, 44, was also arrested in 2009 for allegedly assaulting Ashley at their Upper West Side apartment, New York Post quoted a source as saying.
The ex-Marine spent 10 years at WNBC/Channel 4, hosting the morning show “Today in New York” before joining WCBS in 2009 to anchor the CBS 2 “News This Morning,” as well as “At Noon” with Mary Calvi.
Sources said Morrison left WNBC in 2008 because his wife suspected him of having an affair with an intern.
Ashley Morrison’s mother, Martha Risk, told The Post she was the one who had called the cops on Morrison in the latest incident.
“I’m angry, so angry,” Risk said. She accused Rob of abusing Ashley time and again: “This doesn’t shock me. This has gone on for 10 years.”
