Weigel comes to St. Louis from WLS-TV in Chicago where he was the weekend sports anchor/reporter. He joins the FOX 2 News team October 6, 2014.
Prior to joining ABC 7, Weigel served as sports anchor for HLN’s morning news program, where he covered the major sports stories including the return of Tiger Woods, the Beijing Olympics, and 3 Super Bowls. Before that, Weigel pounded the pavement as a general assignment reporter at KOVR in Sacramento, where he developed his passion for news.
Weigel’s dedication to news gathering was never more evident than when he worked as a freelance reporter at KUSI in San Diego, but lived in Los Angeles. He commuted the 122 miles each night. He began his reporting career at the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Sun-Times.
Weigel grew up in a journalism household in Evanston, IL, the son of former WGN-Radio news anchor Kathy Worthington and the late sports anchor and newspaper columnist Tim Weigel. He is the grandson of Weigel Broadcasting founder and former Lawrence Welk radio announcer, John Jacob Weigel. His sister is Jenniffer Weigel, a former Chicago television news anchor and published author. Before entering into journalism, he lived in Hollywood, CA, where he appeared in television and movies
