The box of beans weather man has become a household name for New South Wales viewers, delivering the day’s conditions and weekly forecast from locations around the State, in his trademark energetic style. Tim has built versatility in television and radio journalism, reporting on a wide range of topics and presenting and hosting a variety of shows including Totally Wild, The Big Breakfast and Good Morning Australia.
Tim started his career as a journalist in his hometown of Hobart with the Hobart Mercury, following in the footsteps of two generations of his family. Initially covering industrial relations and the environment, Tim later moved into the sports department where he covered senior cricket, football, golf and the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
Tim then migrated north to the Gold Coast where for four years, he worked as a feature writer for the Gold Coast Bulletin, establishing his own news agency and selling stories internationally and domestically. From here he expanded into radio where he became an inaugural member of CFM, Cold Coast's very first morning crew.
In 1990, Tim joined Network Ten's 'Good Morning Australia' as a reporter working with Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Mike Gibson, before joining Sydney radio station 2Day FM on The Morning Crew with Wendy Harmer for 12 months as the sports reader, colourful reporter and humourist. But the lure of television was never far away.
Tim soon returned to Network Ten, reviving his role on 'GMA' and also joined the team on 'Totally Wild' as a presenter. He has since hosted various shows for the Network, including 'NRG' (surfing), 'Chilli Factor' (extreme sport), 'The Big Breakfast' (cartoon - kids), 'Airtime' (basketball) and the 'Vodafone Beach Volleyball Tour'. He has also commentated for the Commonwealth Games, six Melbourne Cups, the Uncle Toby's Super Series, Bathurst and the Indy Car Carnival.
One of Australia's most recognisable faces, Tim presents the weather on location around NSW for the 'First at Five News', a position he has held since 1997.
Tim is a polished and professional Master of Ceremonies with over a decade of experience in the corporate market place. He is a regular host of corporate events, launches and personal appearances and currently hosts the Gold Guitars Country Music Awards, amongst others.
A keen surfer, Tim is also a media consultant and presenter for Surfing Australia, and a board member of Surfing NSW. He has competed in four Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races and is also a patron of the Manly Warringah District Cricket Club in Sydney.
Tim is the perfect personality to bring exposure, enthusiasm and passion to any event. In addition, he is an experienced writer of advertising and radio copy for clients as diverse as the Wests Entertainment Group, home shows and Nestle. He is a polished professional with deep corporate experience and his fresh, comfortable, friendly delivery makes him a popular choice as presenter or MC for a broad range of audiences.
