Tim Webster (born 15 December 1951) is an Australian television and radio personality and sports broadcaster. He has previously been a news presenter on the Perth edition of Ten News at Five and the news and sports presenter on the Sydney edition of the program. He was also an occasional fill-in presenter on Ten's Late News as well as Sydney's Ten News First and Sports Tonight.
Webster was the first newsreader on breakfast television show Good Morning Australia. In the early 1980s, he presented TEN-10 Eyewitness News in Sydney, alongside Katrina Lee. The pair enjoyed considerable success, often No. 1 in their timeslot.
On 20 January 1992, Webster launched Australia's first regular, weeknight 5:00 pm newscast, re-uniting with Katrina Lee to co-present TEN-10 Sydney's Ten Eyewitness News First at Five.
He has covered various major sporting events for Network Ten, including the Melbourne Cup, Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, Australasian golf tour. From 1993 until 2004, Webster was the host of the nightly sports program Sports Tonight.
In 2005, Webster became the co-presenter of Perth's Ten News at Five, alongside Charmaine Dragun, while continuing with his duties as the sports presenter on the Sydney bulletin. Following Dragun's death in late 2007, Webster continued on as the solo anchor of the Perth bulletin until 5 May 2008, after which he was replaced by Narelda Jacobs ahead of the bulletin's relocation back to Perth. Later that same month, he stepped down as the Sydney bulletin's sports presenter on 30 May 2008, retiring from Network Ten after 27 years.
In early 2011, Webster presented sport alongside Sandra Sully on Sydney's short-lived Ten Evening News. After that bulletin was axed, and replaced by 6.30 with George Negus (which moved from its original 6:00 pm timeslot) on 4 April 2011, Webster acted as a fill-in presenter for Ten News at Five and other national bulletins.
