Today weatherman Steve Jacobs, 54, says he’s enjoying an active love life as a divorced single dad – and admits finding girlfriends was easier than he expected


Former Today show weather presenter Steve Jacobs has opened up about his love life in a new interview.

The TV personality, 54, told Jana Hocking’s Kinda Sorta Dating podcast he was surprised by how easy it was to date after splitting from wife Rosie in early 2018.

He had expected women wouldn’t be interested in him because he was a divorcee with children, but in fact the opposite was true.

‘The one big thing I was worried about was when I became single with kids is that no woman would be interested,’ Steve said.

‘But I’ve got to say that it has not even been an issue with one person that I’ve seen.’

He also said he’s not a fan of dating apps, and prefers to meet people in person at social gatherings.

Steve was rumoured to be dating mother-of-two Amanda King, whom he met at his daughter’s primary school in 2019.

But he told Daily Mail Australia their relationship was strictly platonic.

Despite this denial, the pair have been spotted together many times since.

Steve parted ways with Channel Nine in 2019, after being replaced as the Today show’s roving weather presenter by Tim Davies.

He had been a fixture of the program on and off since 2005, but had spent much of 2019 as an in-studio weatherman.

While his exit came amid a staff reshuffle, Steve insisted it was his decision to leave.

Taking to Instagram after the news broke, he claimed the real reason he was leaving was to spend more time with his daughters.

‘Sadly I can’t commit to future travel requirements of the job and have to put my beautiful daughters first… They are my world, my life, my joy,’ he wrote.

Steve shares daughters Isabella, ten, and Francesca, eight, with his ex-wife Rosie Jacobs, whom he split from in 2018.

The former couple had relocated to Vanuatu with their daughters in mid-2017, in what friends say was a ‘last-ditch attempt’ to save their marriage.

However, things fell apart within a few months.
