In January 2005 Steven Jacobs was appointed weather presenter on TODAY, following a year as the motoring reporter.
He has worked on both sides of the camera – as an actor and host, as well as a researcher, writer and producer.
Jacobs got his first big break in his home town of Wollongong, New South Wales, when he signed up to host a childrens program Kids News, on WIN-TV. He ended up writing and producing the show for five years from (1985 – 1990).
Four days after finishing with Kids News he was offered a role in the comedy All Together Now. He played Thomas, the cheeky and scheming twin to Anna, played by Jane Hall. After notching up over 100 episodes with this hit comedy series, Jacobs went on to host Saturday At Rick's, Just Kidding and What’s Up Doc?.
Since then, his work has encompassed numerous commercials, stage, TV and film productions, such as Come In Spinner, Sixty Seconds and The Sheer Mountain Killing Mystery.
For five years (1992-96) he hosted the Rock Eisteddfod Challenge and each Friday for the three years (1994-96) he presented a Top 40 program for Sky Radio, which was syndicated to 52 radio stations.
He has presented a number of television specials including The World's Funniest Commercials, World's Greatest Dummy Spits, World's Greatest Stunts And Stuff Ups and Caught on Camera 2.
In 1997, Jacobs joined In Melbourne Tonight, Nine's prime-time variety program with Frank Holden, Julia Morris and Anne-Maree Biggar.
He joined The Car Show as a reporter in 2002 and in 2003 became a reporter for Channel Nine's popular Victorian travel show, Postcards.
His other passion is music. He has an independent record label, AJP Music, which develops and records new Australian artists.
Steven lives in Sydney and returns to Wollongong, where his family lives, as often as possible.
