Between 2002 and 2004, he developed, wrote and hosted three television pilots for the USA and FX Networks.

Since Weir joined ABC News in 2004, he has covered breaking news and global trends such as reporting on the economic rise of China and India were signature features on Good Morning America. World News devoted air time to his reports from Africa, the Middle East and the South Pacific. He went to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, as well as Afghanistan in 2010 and led the network's coverage of Iraq, Where Things Stand at the height of the American troop surge. Weir has anchored several launches and landings of the Space Shuttle, was the first American to broadcast live from Tibet and led off 2007's Earth Day special with an unprecedented underwater live report from the Great Barrier Reef.

In an interview with blog creator Brandon Stanton, Weir said, "I'm a jaded, cynical journalist... The things that tend to get me are the smaller moments of human connection. I remember one time in India, I saw a legless child being handed off between his father and mother. It was simple but that really moved me. Ever since I had a child of my own, I've been really vulnerable to displays of parental love."

In 2015, CNN began broadcasting The Wonder List with Bill Weir.
