He was the host of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2009 together with Ani Lorak, and again in 2013 with Zlata Ognevich. Timur also co-hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
His TV career began in 2005, when he became a commentator for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2005 — the first JESC to broadcast in Ukraine. He went on to become the commentator of the Eurovision Song Contest for Ukraine from 2007, replacing Pavlo Shylko. He has provided commentary of all broadcasts of Eurovision on UA:PBC since then except ones of contests that were presented by him. He also hosted the TV programme "Як це?" ("How it is?"), also on UA:PBC.
Miroshnychenko has also hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2013 with Zlata Ognevich, his second time hosting the Junior contest. On 26 February 2017, it was announced that Miroshnychenko would host the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv. He acted as the green room host, with Oleksandr Skichko and Volodymyr Ostapchuk acting as main hosts. It was the first time that the Eurovision Song Contest was presented by a male trio, and the second time, after the 1956 edition with a solo male presenter, that the contest did not feature a female presenter.
