Tim Wilson


Journalist, TV Host, Writer, MC, Speaker

When Lady Gaga described performing live as like having an orgasm, Tim Wilson asked her to walk him through that. The Queen of Outrage blushed, for the first time in her career, and possibly life.

Days later Tim was trying to book flights to Texas to cover another American gun massacre. As TVNZ’s first US Correspondent, Tim also made Brad Pitt laugh, and Jennifer Aniston scowl. Unsurprisingly perhaps, Taylor Swift refused to rap for him. Beside TV, Tim’s journalism has appeared in the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, The Guardian, Newsweek.com, The Listener, Metro, and Reader’s Digest. He has won awards for investigative and business journalism.Tim has MCed many events including KEA’s World Class New Zealand with Miriama Kamo, and TNS Global’s launch.

Hospitality NZ Conference Sept 2018

"Tim was a joy to deal with, his calm, no-fuss manner helped the conference run smoothly. He showed a genuine interest in our conference sitting in all sessions, meaning he could facilitate meaningful Q&A for delegates and speakers, and relate things back to the theme of our event."
