Jim Wilson is the sports presenter for Seven News in Sydney.
A self-described “sports nut”, Jim grew up on Queensland’s Gold Coast and has worked in the media for more than 20 years, starting as a cadet at Brisbane’s Courier Mail.
During his career as a sports journalist, Jim has covered some of the most significant sporting events of recent times such as seven Olympic Games, the British Open golf, South African and West Indian cricket tours, World Cup soccer, the NRL State of Origin series and AFL Grand Finals.
Jim has been part of the Seven Sports team since 1992, holding senior correspondent and reporter positions in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Jim now holds what he calls “his dream job”, presenting sport for Seven News in Sydney alongside his wife, Chris Bath. In addition to his television commentating he is also a seasoned and popular MC for corporate and sporting events.
Jim is a passionate supporter of several charities such as the NELUNE Foundation and NSW Cancer Council, having lost his youngest son Sam to brain cancer in 2010, when Sam was just six.
As well as presenting sport for Seven, Jim is also a commentator for Sky News, 2GB radio in Sydney and 3AW radio in Melbourne. Besides being sports mad, Jim is also a foodie and describes himself as a “coffee purist”.
