TV and radio star, comedian, writer, environmental warrior, ARIA Award winner, well-dressed man ... is there anything Tim Ross can't do? Okay, no need to answer that but his media accomplishments are not to be sneezed at.

As the "Rosso part" of comedy act Merrick and Rosso, Tim built up an enormous fan base through sell-out stand-up performances across Australia and a popular stint on Triple J's drive show before making the move to the competitive Sydney FM market as co-host of Nova 96.9's top-rating breakfast show for an astonishing nine years.

On TV he has starred in Merrick & Rosso Unplanned (Nine Network), The B-Team (Network Ten) and The Merrick and Rosso Show (Foxtel), and has made countless guest appearances on shows ranging from Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? to Australian Story. More recently Tim signed on as the host of Channel Sevens' No Leave No Life that aired towards the end of 2011.

In 2006, he was one of a very select few chosen to be trained by Al Gore Jr to deliver the environmental word via the former US Vice-President's Inconvenient Truth slide presentation.

He is currently a contributor to Men's Style Australia, Rolling Stone and The (Sydney) Magazine.

In 2010, Tim released "Mum had a Kingswood" published by Allen and Unwin.

This year Tim has make a return to breakfast radio after a two year break, partnering with Claire Hooper at Sydney's Mix 106.5. Tim lives in Sydney, in his 1959 Modernist home and is a collector of Mid Century Modern furniture.
