Steven Jacobs (born 8 January 1967) is an Australian television, radio presenter and actor.
Jacobs was born in Wollongong, New South Wales. Before he made it to national television, he hosted a children's news program known as Kids News, which was produced at WIN Television studios in Wollongong.
Following this, Jacobs started his career in radio, presenting a weekly Top 40 music countdown. He has since appeared in many Nine Network productions, the first notable one being All Together Now, which aired from 1991 to 1993. With Sofie Formica, Jacobs co-hosted the series Just Kidding! and What's Up Doc? in the early 1990s.
On 10 June 2009, Jacobs was in a plane on his way to Broken Hill when the plane had to make an emergency landing. He later reported on television that the plane only had one working engine and just had enough hydraulic fuel on board to enable the plane to land.
In December 2016, Jacobs announced that he would leave Today to spend more time with his family. In 2017, he swapped places with Natalia Cooper and became the weather presenter on Weekend Today.
In August 2018, Jacobs returned to Today to fill in for Natalia Cooper whilst she was away on holidays. It was also announced at this time that Jacobs would be a presenter on the Nine Network's new travel series Helloworld for first series, which aired on 7 October 2018 with Jacobs hosting in Vanuatu. But he, Denis Walter, Sonia Kruger and Lauren Phillips was replaced by Giaan Rooney on the Seven Network from series two onwards.
In January 2019, it was announced that Jacobs would return to Today as weather presenter. Jacobs again departed the show in December, replaced by Tim Davies.
In February 2009, Jacobs announced his engagement to Rose Kelly, a presenter on The Weather Channel, once his divorce was finalised with previous wife of nine years, Alison; they married in Bali in May 2010. In November 2010, he announced on Today that Rose was pregnant with their first child and in May 2011, she gave birth to daughter. In April 2013, Rose gave birth to the couple's second daughter.
In March 2018, Jacobs said that he and Rose had split after seven years of marriage. Jacobs returned to Australia following the split, after living in Vanuatu for the previous year.
