Seven Network’s sports presenter Jim Wilson has been named the new host of 2GB’s Drive program, replacing former host Ben Fordham.
The competitive slot opened when Fordham took over 2GB’s breakfast slot on June 1 following Alan Jones’ retirement.
Wilson, 52, joined Seven in 1992 as a sports presenter and reporter in Melbourne before moving to Sydney. Prior to joining Seven, he worked for the Nine Network in Brisbane.
Nine, the owner of this masthead and 2GB, did not reveal what date Wilson will start his new role but said he will begin in the coming weeks and the show will be renamed 2GB Drive with Jim Wilson.
