Engaging television personality James Tobin is part of the Seven Network’s Sunrise team and is seen on weekends roving around the country dishing up the weather.
He has competed in the gruelling Tour de Cure Road Race, pedalling some 1650kms over 11 days and sharing his weather reports with viewers. The 2012 Olympics saw James sharing his weather reports with the Sunrise audience all the way from the action in London.
Prior to joining Seven, James was one of Nickelodeon's brightest stars - hosting the Saturday morning show, sn:tv.
He started his media career in radio - working as a music researcher for the ARN Network before moving to Sydney's 2DAY-FM. His work was then heard around the country as part of Kyle and Jackie O's Hot 30.
He became a popular children’s television personality and appeared on a number of other shows, including Sarvo and the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. Audiences have loved James’ entertainment interviews with such diverse stars as Hugh Jackman, Michelle Monaghan, Robert Downey Jnr, Kelly Clarkson, Dani Minogue, Jack Black and The Foo Fighters.
James has also established an acting career, appearing in Network 7’s medical drama All Saints and the Australian feature film Lovely Scary Wolves. He proved a to be a crowd favourite and had a ball on the Seven Network’s Dancing with The Stars – which he believes proved that he is better at interviewing entertainers than perhaps dancing around as one!
James is also honoured to be an Ambassador for Father Chris Riley's Youth Off the Streets and the mental health initiative, Headspace. And yes, he came second in the 2010 Cleo Bachelor of the Year competition.
