Most recently Ed was host of Temptation, a national nightly quiz show on Channel Nine, and was part of a select group including Tony Barber and Glenn Ridge as only the third host of the most successful and longest running quiz show in Australia.
Ed began his broadcasting career in 1988 with Triple M and remained with the station until 1997.
During his time with Triple M he also hosted Pot of Gold on Channel 10.
In 1997 Ed worked as a sports presenter for Channel Nine – as a keen sportsman himself it was a dream job.
But the chance to host a radio show on Melbourne’s TTFM – now Mix 101.1 – with his future Temptation host, Livinia Nixon, was too good a chance to pass up and the pair worked together on the afternoon show until 2000.
He became a senior presenter on Australia’s Weather Channel before joining Temptation with Livinia in 2005.
During the show’s four-year run Ed appeared on our screens five nights a week.
A hallmark of the show was Ed’s warm rapport with the contestants and amazing ability to put them at ease - despite the intensity of the show.
His quick wit, mega-watt smile and sense of humour have all contributed to Ed Phillips’ success as a presenter and in demand corporate speaker. Ed is actively involved in the community, and continues to support several children’s charities.
He regularly MCs major community events and functions.
Melbourne born and educated, Ed now lives in Sydney with his family where he regularly participates in cycling and triathlons.
Ed is available for corporate functions and events.
