Bill Weir: The GMA co-host takes rides Bull Air Race plane

Bill Weir, the co-host of Good Morning America weekend-edition, took a ride on Red Bull Air Race plane on August 5, 2010, ahead of the weekend race in New York. It was a very exciting experience for the anchor and he was happy that he did throw up his lunch during the 6g flight over the New York race track. After the flight, Weir said, "You could see Manhattan and the skyline in the distance and then it's like this, and then like this, and like this and this. He was taking it easy on me too.....It tested my digestive system. I've got a lot of respect for these guys."

Earlier this year, Bill Weir fulfilled his dream of skydiving. Weir’s father and stepmother were amateur skydivers and frequently he used to accompany them to the nearby airstrip in his hometown known as the Aero Park.

Born in 1967 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Bill Weir received his degree in journalism and creative writing from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. Weir started his TV career in 1991 as a general assignment reporter and weekend sportscaster at KAAL in Austin, Minnesota which was followed by being the sports anchor at WLUK in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He then worked as an anchor at the KABC-TV in Los Angeles from 1998-2002. During this time, he hosted the popular weekly Monday Night Live program that was aired after the Monday Night Football.
