President and Chief Storyteller
Rafer Weigel is the president and founder of Weigel Media Group. His passion for storytelling is evident in his decades of experience as a news anchor and reporter for television news and print media. Rafer has won multiple awards working at blue-chip companies, including CNN, Fox News, ABC 7 Chicago, Fox 2 St. Louis, the Chicago Sun-Times and the Los Angeles Times.
Years of reporting experience have honed Rafer’s ability to discern the personal connection in any story, from breaking news to a human-interest piece. Even as a sports reporter and anchor, he conveyed stories that appealed even to non-sports fans by focusing on the elements that transcended sports and resonated with viewers on a personal level. At Weigel Media Group, Rafer is just as committed to identifying those client assets that connect with an audience. He gets to the heart of a story by using his interviewing skills to put people at ease to uncover their key messages. Learn more about why Rafer founded WMG here.
“The most interesting element in telling a story about people is passion and emotion because those resonate with the viewer beyond just the subject matter. At Weigel Media Group, we bring a zeal for storytelling to each narrative, and that comes across in the final product.”
