Tim Webster is one of Australia’s leading broadcasters and television personalities. With a down to earth, approachable personality, he is a much sought after master of ceremonies, presenter and host. Tim is at home in both scripted and unscripted environments, and is admired for his ability to ad-lib in challenging circumstances.
Originally from Sydney, Tim Webster’s rise from night time disc jockey at radio 2BS Bathurst, NSW in 1973 to Sydney 2SM by 1974 was probably one of the fastest leaps from country to city radio in history.
Part of the original groundbreaking Sydney 2MMMFM on-air team in 1980, Tim settled at 2DAYFM a year later and was there until the late 1980’s.
In 1981 Tim turned his talents to television and was the first newsreader on Good Morning Australia, which he later co-hosted with Kerri-Anne Kennerly in 1987 – 1988 and again in 1991. From 1982 – 1986 Tim presented Eyewitness News with Katrina Lee and briefly with Ann Sanders before taking Eyewitness News to 5.00pm in 1992 as news presenter with Katrina Lee.
For many years, Tim hosted the Melbourne Cup Carnival, in particular the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup. Coupled with this, Tim was involved with co-hosting the 1994 Commonwealth Games.
Tim loves all sport but ask him which is his favourite and there will be no hesitation in his answer – golf. An avid golfer himself, Tim’s handicap has been sliding for a few years now due to a knee injury (so he says!).
In 1993, Tim became the host of Sports Tonight, Network Ten’s nightly sports news program. Tim has his own radio program on 2UE in Sydney from Noon to 3pm Monday to Friday, and makes regular appearances on the TEN News set in Sydney and for the National Bulletins at 6am and on weekends at 5pm.
Tim is extremely professional and an exceptionally nice person. The client was most impressed and we would not hesitate to use him again and recommend him to others.

Tim Webster exhibited great warmth and professionalism in his role as a MC. He related extremely well to the audience. This was the third time we had used him for this group and it certainly won't be the last.

Tim's relaxed style made everyone feel at home in his company. His preparation relative to the topic of community transport; his rapport with the delegates; time spent in presenting in a most professional manner was the subject of discussion at the last CTO Board Meeting when it was unanimously agreed that he left nothing to be desired. Well done and thank you Tim from all the team. We will certainly keep Tim at the top of our list of MC's.
