He became a Freeman of the City of London in 2005 and was voted Broadcast Business Journalist in the same year. Michael is television's longest serving business editor.

He began his television career at Thames Television in 1979, and became one of the station's leading current affairs reporters and presenters, and in 1987 founded Thames' flagship show, The City Programme.

Wilson joined Sky News in 1989 and then left in 1993 to become a presenter on GMTV, where he presented the first weekday programme with Fiona Armstrong.

Fiona left and Wilson founded the 6-7am GMTV News Hour, with Eamonn Holmes and Anne Davies taking up the Monday to Friday roles as main GMTV presenters. The News Hour broke television early morning viewing records by achieving one million viewers in less than six months.

Wilson left in 1995 to return to Sky News.
