About Jim Wilson

A Passion for Life and Sport – Jim Wilson is a professional communicator.

Jim left the Seven Network after 20 years in mid 2020 to join Radio 2GB which is part of the Nine Family of companies. Jim had presented sport for Sydney’s Seven News and had been the National Sports Editor for the Seven Network when he left. In addition, Jim had been a senior host/ anchor for 7. The offer to cover the life of Sydney for 2GB beyond just sport was just too tempting an offer to refuse. For two years Jim brought to Sydney’s drive time the all the news… current affairs, sport, lifestyle and he highlighted the social fabric of Sydney.

In late 2022 Jim moved on from 2GB and is now concentrating on setting up his own communications company “The Comms Gurus’ with his wife, TV presenter Chris Bath.; and addition, Jim will be available for MC roles and keynote addresses.

A self-described “sports nut”, Jim grew up on Queensland’s Gold Coast and has worked as a journalist for more than 30 years, starting as a cadet at Brisbane’s Courier Mail.

During his career as a sports journalist, Jim has covered and hosted some of the most significant sporting events of recent times including eight Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, the British Open golf, South African and West Indian cricket tours, World Cup soccer, the NRL State of Origin series, AFL Grand Finals and most recently hosting the Big Bash League.

Jim’s after dinner speeches are loaded with all the humorous anecdotes you would expect of a sporting journalist.

To add to Jim’s skill set, he is a much sought after Master of Ceremonies. He has facilitated numerous panel discussions at AGM’s, corporate events, charity events and awards nights. Event organisers are always confident when Jim is on stage that he will deliver a first class, professional and time sensitive performance.

As an affirmation of the regard people have for Jim, Jim has been appointed an ambassador to two football clubs from different codes. In Melbourne, the Carlton Football Club and the Titans Rugby League Club on the Gold Coast.

Jim is a passionate supporter of several charities committed to cancer research. Jim lost his youngest son, Sam, to brain cancer in 2010 when he was just six years old. He is an ambassador for Cancer Council NSW. “Sam was an incredible boy who deserved better but his attitude towards life and his courage defied his age and he drives me every day – his memory will live on forever,” says Jim.
