Jim Wilson to leave 2GB

Respected broadcaster and senior journalist Jim Wilson has announced he’s stepping down as host of 2GB Drive to pursue other opportunities with Nine television.

Jim made the announcement on his Drive program this afternoon thanking his listeners for their support over the last couple of years.

“I’ve been so lucky to have been given this opportunity and my listeners have been incredible, I’m going to miss them. They’ve taken me into their lounge rooms, into their cars and to have been the #1 talk show, in a super competitive slot, three out of the last four ratings surveys is something I’m very proud of achieving.”

“In my 35 years in broadcasting, my mantra has been all about being fair and reasonable and true to myself. We’ve managed to help people and given them a voice on my program and that’s been the most satisfying part of the job – getting people a fair go. I love what I do and I’ve still got the passion to do more in the future, there’s nothing like live broadcasting and I say bring on the next chapter.”

Jim took over the Drive shift in July 2020, and has been a source of trusted information and great comfort for his listeners through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nine Radio’s Managing Director, Tom Malone said: “I want to thank Jim for his hard work, professionalism and passion over the past two and a half years. He is a person of the highest integrity and he’s championed so many great causes for our listeners during his tenure. I look forward to seeing Jim back on our TV screens, and he leaves radio with our good will and best wishes.”

Jim will host his final Drive program tomorrow afternoon. An announcement about a new permanent host will be made in due course.
