Tim Bailey has quit his job at 2GB, ten months after joining Ben Fordham's radio show as a weather presenter.  

Announcing the news on Tuesday's broadcast, the media icon, 58, said he's decided to hang up the microphone after recently relocating from Sydney to the Gold Coast with his wife Samantha.

'I'm very fortunate, my beautiful and brilliant wife has a very big job in medical technology and she liked the sound of living on the Gold Coast, so she found us a house that is basically the house of our dreams,' Bailey told Fordham.

'Benny, I love you, but i love wife, wine, bike and board a little bit more,' he mused.

The weatherman went on to thank his colleagues at 2GB, saying he 'loved every second' of his time working at 2GB.    

He made special mention of Fordham, who famously offered him a job at 2GB just 20 minutes after he was sacked by Channel 10 last August.
