Ed Phillips (born 6 July 1966) is a Sydney-based television and radio presenter. He is probably best known for hosting the national game-show Temptation in the mid-2000s.
Phillips began his career in 1988 with radio station Triple M, where he stayed until 1997. In 1994 he hosted television game show Pot of Gold, which lasted for two seasons. He then made another foray into television as a sports reporter for the Nine Network (in 1997 and 98). From 1998 – 2000 he also hosted an afternoon drive show on Melbourne's TTFM (now Mix 101.1) with his future Temptation co-host Livinia Nixon. Also in 1998, he hosted a game show on Network Ten named Battle of the Sexes. Afterwards, he became a senior presenter on Australia's Weather Channel.
He was also a popular fixture on daytime TV as an infomercial host and live-cross man on Good Morning Australia. In mid-2005 he left Network Ten to move to the Nine Network as host of Temptation, which he hosted alongside Livinia Nixon until the show's cancellation in January 2009.
In 2010, he joined Network Ten's new morning program The Circle as a roving reporter and infomercial host similar to that of his position on Good Morning Australia. Phillips has also been a fill-in presenter on 2UE and hosted 'Destinations' on MIX FM.
