Elliot Weiler

Consumer Reporter / Anchor

As the Contact 2 Consumer Reporter at FOX 2 News, Elliot Weiler fights for the little guy, working to resolve tough problems. His Contact 2 investigations expose scams and rip-offs targeting consumers in Missouri and Illinois while his “Hey Elliot” segments offer FOX 2 viewers tips and advice they can’t get anywhere else.

Elliot also anchors FOX 2 News at 11am during the weekdays along with April Simpson.

Elliot joined the FOX 2 team in 2006 after working as a consumer reporter at WBRE-TV in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters honored Elliot with two “Best Special Report” awards for his investigations into fraudulent Canadian loan scams.

Prior to working in Scranton, Elliot worked for Comcast in Reading, Pennsylvania, WCAX-TV in Burlington, Vermont, WTXF-TV in Philadelphia and WGAL-TV in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

After graduating from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Elliot was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to study political communications in Canada. Elliot holds graduate degrees in political science and journalism from York University in Toronto and Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

Elliot grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs and now enjoys living in St. Louis.
