Livinia Nixon's television career began while she was at University studying for her Commerce Arts Degree (majoring in Marketing and Chinese). The eve of her final exams was the first day of filming on "The Comedy Channel" with Glenn Robbins and Marty Sheargold
Since the days of hosting the children's program, "Plucka's Place" - alongside that famous Aussie TV duck - Livinia's on-camera roles have grown in a seemingly short space of time. In 1988, she joined the long-running variety show "Hey Hey It's Saturday" , at the invitation of host, Daryl Somers. Here, Livinia performed weekly in front of a live studio audience, combined with her love of travel, flying out to interview international celebrities for the program. This included Matt Le Blanc, Gary Oldman, Jamie Lee Curtis, Drew Carey, Heather Graham, Martin Sheen, Rob Lowe and Brooke Shields.
During this time, Livinia juggled her Hey Hey commitments with a morning, then drive time shift on Melbourne radio MIX-FM (formerly TT-FM).
By 2000, she was reporting Victoria 's tourism highlights in GTV9's "Postcards". Further, Livinia produced her own stories and, ultimately, hosted the series. This brought her to the attention of the Executive Producer of "That's Melbourne " . Livinia hosted this series and the TV special, " Melbourne - Secrets of the City." Locally, Livinia is well-known as "the face of Melbourne ", as she continues to promote on behalf of her home city.
Moving along: in 2001, Livinia hosted the popular Children's Christmas Concert that preceded Nine's legendary "Carols By Candlelight"; during the 2002/2003 holiday periods, she presented the weather on National Nine News, and was appointed full-time weather presenter early 2004; in the same year Livinia completed a graduate diploma in Applied Science at Melbourne University and played her first film role as "Celeste Sky, a television presenter, in Jimeoin's feature film, "The Extra"; more traveling in 2005, when Livinia joined the Nine Network "Getaway" team as a guest reporter.
Most recently, she's again on camera with Ed Phillips - her friend and co-host from TT-FM days - as they present "Temptation" (the new Sale of the Century) weeknights, nationally, on the Nine Network.
All this, and there's the corporate engagements (Livinia regularly undertakes Master of Ceremonies and Guest Presenter roles), as much travel as she can squeeze in - she's visited Japan, China, Africa, and back-packed through America, Europe, Finland and Estonia - as well as being an ambassador for World Vision and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.… Expand
