Tim Wilson

Profile

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.

Tim is married to Rachel, and they are the proud, happy parents of three boys under four.

AML Summit March 2019

We were thrilled to have Tim MC our annual AML SUMMIT at SKYCITY Convention Centre – he was a very calming influence, with a ‘go with the flow’ attitude and injected some humor into what would otherwise be a very serious conference. Thanks Tim, highly recommended .
