Bill Weir is a CNN anchor, Chief Climate Correspondent and was the host and executive producer of the acclaimed CNN Original Series "The Wonder List with Bill Weir."
After a decade of award-winning journalism at ABC News, Weir joined CNN in 2013 and with his distinctive storytelling style, lush photography and a focus on our connected planet, he created the primetime CNN Original Series "The Wonder List with Bill Weir" in 2015. Over three seasons, he traveled the world in search of unique people, places, cultures and creatures on the brink of seismic change. After helping to launch the weekend edition of "Good Morning America" in 2004, Weir became co-anchor of "Nightline" in 2010 while his reporting was featured on "World News with Diane Sawyer," "Good Morning America," "20/20" and his own Yahoo! News digital series, "This Could Be Big."
In his network career, Weir journeyed to 49 states and more than 100 nations, covering breaking news and uncovering global trends. He has interviewed heads of state and industry along with stars of stage and screen. In 2012, he anchored ABC's Summer Olympics coverage from London and brought unprecedented reporting from inside Apple's Chinese factories. Weir was among the first reporters into the floodwaters of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and Japan's tsunami zone during the nuclear crisis of 2011. He dodged Taliban bullets in Afghanistan, led network coverage from Iraq and was the first American to broadcast live from Tibet. His live shots have come from atop the Golden Gate Bridge and below the waters of the Great Barrier Reef while his adventure reporting includes jumps from hot air balloons, hikes deep into the Amazon and one fun night spent lashed to the side of Yosemite's El Capitan.
As a writer and anchor, Weir produced several special hours for ABC prime time on topics ranging from religion to brain science, the business of mail-order brides and the rise and fall of General Motors. Before joining ABC News, Weir wrote and hosted projects for the FX and USA Networks and was an anchor/reporter in Los Angeles, Chicago, Green Bay and Austin, MN.
His debut book, "Life as We Know It (Can Be)" (Chronicle Prism, 2024), confronts the biggest threats to life as we know it and explores ideas for building a more promising future.
