In the final part of our MediaBeat interview with Bill Weir, the ABC News anchor talks about his early days as a sports anchor for several local news stations. One of those stints was in Green Bay, Wisconsin where now-legendary quarterback Brett Favre had just been traded. Weir: “‘If you think he’s wild and crazy now, imagine when he was 24.”
Head over to SportsNewser to see the interview, including rare footage from the show Weir hosted and Favre guested.
