We obtain a representation for the norm of certain compact weighted composition operator Cψ,φ on the Hardy space H2, whenever φ(z)=az+b and ψ(z)=azb. We also estimate the norm and essential norm of a class of noncompact weighted composition operators under certain conditions on φ and ψ. Moreover, we characterize the norm and essential norm of such operators in a special case.
