    Biography

    Tim began his media career at Channel Nine in Sydney during the 1980's, and has been surrounded by a NEWS environment most of his career. Working on programs such as Today, National Nine News, A Current Affair and Nightline, Tim has gained a distinctive and extensive perspective on the nature of news and breaking stories.

    As a news stringer, he has voiced reports for radio stations (and exclusively for some programs), stretching back to World Expo '88 in Brisbane. His extensive travelling with Channel Nine also allowed him to file freelance radio news reports from the Formula 1 Grand Prix and various Cricket and Football Tests around the country.

    In Sydney, Tim has assisted broadcasters as a location voicer for radio coverage of events such as New Years Eve celebrations, Federal & State Elections and even once from on-board a newly launched rollercoaster (never again...). As such, Tim is considered a very versatile reporter. His voice-over experience (and competency with NewsBoss software) also makes him a capable newsreader or presenter.

    Tim is the Sydney based correspondent for Global Radio News based in London, and formally for the Canadian Economic Press located in Montreal.

    For casual or freelance location requirements, Tim comes kitted with Mini-Disk digital recorder, AKG D230 microphone, internet capable laptop computer installed with Adobe Audition and mobile phone interface.

    Location reports or feature stories can be filed over the phone, or via remote email as WAV or MP3 files. Video files can be forwarded by FTP or as a 'store & forward' file via M-Link.

    When not on other assignments, Tim is heard reporting in a freelance capacity for radio stations within Australia and overseas. In 2003, he completed a tenure presenting sports updates during Macquarie National News on weekend mornings, heard on radio 2GB (873 Khz -AM) in Sydney, and on affiliated stations.

    He then covered the Rugby world Cup for 25 radio stations around the world. In 2005, he was on assignment in Saudi Arabia producing end of day media reports at the Jeddah Economic Forum. In 2008, he covered the Rugby League World Cup for radio stations in Northern England.

    He extensively covered the murder of Peter Falconio in Australia and subsequent trial of Bradley Murdoch for radio stations in the UK. His radio reports were also used in the filmed dramatisation of the case (see excepts with Tim's reports here: https://youtu.be/v3eNzgn3-Jw)

    In 2007, he supplied global coverage of the APEC Leaders meeting in Sydney for radio and TV. In 2008 he covered World Youth Day for radio and TV internationally.
