About Michael Wilson
Michael Wilson is television’s longest-serving business and economics editor, becoming a household face – and name – as a recognised first voice on some of the biggest business stories of our age.
Over the past twenty years, he has anchored all Sky’s coverage of major business and financial news – giving quick, accurate, on-the-spot analysis from Budgets to crises, and from booms to bust. He is equally well-known in the City and in journalism and his views are respected in all areas of television, business and finance.
Michael Wilson joined Sky Television at its inception in 1989, quickly establishing himself as a trusted and authoritative journalist. In 1992, he left to present GMTV’s early morning news and business hour.
He then returned to Sky as Business and Economics Editor in 1995, and launched Sky Business Report, the news channel’s then daily evening money programme. Business figures, corporate communications professionals and fellow journalists alike viewed Michael as a must-speak-to journalist, primarily because of the credence he carried.
