Before working in television, Weinberger served as a Deputy Sheriff for Broward County, in Florida. While in law enforcement, he received numerous commendations for his work. He was also featured as an officer on the long-running syndicated program, Cops. While assigned to the U.S. Marshal Service Strike Taskforce, Weinberger spent several months chasing the southeast’s most wanted fugitives. His work for the Marshal Service inspired an idea for a television series. He took a leave of absence from law enforcement to make the show a reality. It was a gamble, but it paid off. Weinberger teamed up with executive producer Don Johnson to develop a scripted show based on the U.S. Marshal Service. “The Marshal,” starring Jeff Fahey, was sold to Paramount Television and ABC.

Weinberger returned to law enforcement. However, when local reporters approached him to produce a story on how a cop developed a successful tv show, he decided to leave his job for good and became a reporter for WPBF, an ABC station in West Palm Beach, Florida. Weinberger’s background in law enforcement, along with his tenacity, made him an ideal crime reporter. The quality of his work was quickly recognized, and he received an offer to work in the nation’s number one market, New York City. Weinberger joined WNBC-TV, and then moved on to WCBS-TV, where he was named chief investigative reporter.

In New York, Weinberger’s trademark was breaking big stories and booking big interviews. He scored an exclusive prison interview with David Berkowitz, the infamous Son of Sam. The interview ran as a multi-part series on the 30th anniversary of Berkowitz’s murderous reign of terror. The Series gave WCBS-TV its highest sweeps numbers ever and earned Weinberger an Emmy nomination. Also, while at WCBS-TV, Weinberger reported on lax security at a nuclear power plant. His investigation was featured on the front page of the Washington Post and earned him an Emmy for best hard news series. A year later, Weinberger received four more Emmy nominations and won for Red Light Rabbi - a four-month investigation that uncovered an abuse of power by a New York religious leader - and resulted in the city revamping its rules on emergency vehicles. In 2009, Weinberger won another Emmy for his investigation of a Queens woman who hired a hitman to murder her dentist husband. In all, Weinberger has received nine Emmy nominations and has won the coveted trophy three times.
