Although initially hired from ABC News to serve as a lead correspondent and primetime news anchor, Bill Weir’s path at CNN instead served as a temporary fill-in host of CNN Tonight, before disappearing for some time and re-appearing with The Wonder List.
Beyond taping new seasons of The Wonder List (and hosting a recent political special), Weir has kept a relatively low profile on the network.
Since the hurricane in Puerto Rico, however, Weir has been one of CNN’s most relentless reporters on the ground. Even though the hurricane has come and gone, Weir remains there to report on the damage.
About three weeks ago, Weir made headlines for giving a hurricane victim cash out of his own pocket after she explained she lost access to her funds.
