Kim Watkins's Biography

Host of morning show 9am with David & Kim and Saving Babies (a real life series which follows the work of the dedicated doctors, midwives, nurses and specialists at The Royal Hospital for Women, Randwick, where her own twins were born with complications).


Kim's talents as a trusted news reader and lifestyle presenter are well established and she is in demand for corporate MC roles, facilitation and media training sessions.
At the end of 1994 she moved to Sydney in the new year to work on the top-rating lifestyle show Money. She became popular with viewers for the relaxed, fun way she delivered important and often complex issues. In addition to Money, Kim also read the 6pm Saturday night news for six years and made guest appearances on The Footy Show, Sale of the Century, Our House, Burgo’s Catchphrase and regularly filled-in hosting the Today Show.
She was then recruited to Channel 9's Good Medicine, and the real life drama of operating Theatre speakerss. She was often moved to tears during the filming of the show, and regards it as the most rewarding journalistic work of her career, along with co-hosting crime show Australia’s Most Wanted, filmed the same year. With the help of viewers, AMW solved a number of crimes and gave hope to many victims of crime.
In 2000, Kim showed her great versatility when she returned to her roots in news, anchoring the 11am news bulletin and regularly filling-in on Nightline, the 6pm weekend news, Today Show, and the 4.30 news. "There’s nothing like live TV," Kim enthuses, "the ability to think on your feet and decipher handfuls of information is a real challenge, and I love it." Kim describes her 10 years at Channel 9, as some of the happiest of her life.
