White began his journalism career as a writer for the Associated Press, but soon gravitated towards music writing. He was an editor for the rock magazine Crawdaddy! in the late 1970s and a senior editor for Rolling Stone magazine in the early 1980s, where he wrote a ground-breaking article detailing the destruction of Bob Hope's face in a logging accident when Hope was in his teens, accounting for Hope's unusual nose and jaw. White was editor-in-chief of Billboard from 1991 until his death at age 50 of a heart attack in 2002.
He also hosted and co-produced a nationally syndicated radio series, "Timothy White's Rock Stars/The Timothy White Sessions".
