This isn’t the first time Morrison has taken to writing about his life. After leaving WNBC in 2008, Rob wrote a blog called “Daddy Diaries – Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Anchorman,” which was published on the Huffington Post. He was never paid for the blog.
When Rob returned to TV as an anchorman at WCBS, there were discussions about developing the project into a TV show. Now he hopes lightning will strike twice.

He’s a fighter,” a close friend of Morrison’s tells Confidenti@l. “He knows it’s going to be hard for him to find another job in TV, so he is planning on blogging again. This is his chance to tell his side of the story firsthand. He’s already started writing.”
“Daddy Diaries” focused on Rob’s life as a stay-at-home dad while Ashley, a CBS “MoneyWatch” anchor, worked. The blog was full of TV insider stories and jokes that rivaled “Anchorman” in a funny peek at the news business.
Meanwhile, Ashley has returned to WCBS after their altercation. Since she tapes her segments on a different floor in the building, she has not visited the newsroom on the second floor where her husband worked.
“The network is being very careful to reintroduce Ashley slowly,” says one CBS staffer. “They think it’s too soon to return her to everyone after what happened and Rob accused of choking her.”
Another insider tells Confidenti@l that Ashley has resumed all her duties and that no one has made her feel any differently than before the incident.
Morrison’s lawyer did not return a request for comment by deadline.
