There is no more versatile and enduring personality on Australian television than Livinia Nixon.
Nixon is best known for bringing Melbourne viewers their weather report each week night on Nine News at 6.00pm, a role she has held since 2004.
In 2011, she also took on the role of presenting the weather in the national bulletin of Nine News each weekday afternoon, before switching to the new Melbourne afternoon bulletin in 2017.
In 2016, Nixon rejoined Nine’s long-running Postcards program after first appearing on the show in its early days. Alongside the ensemble cast, she explores the best travel and lifestyle destinations in Victoria. Nixon is also a regular contributor to Nine’s iconic travel program Getaway and has reported from Samoa, Germany, France, Switzerland, Japan and Hungary.
In 2017 Nixon celebrated 20 years with the Nine Network.

Her quick wit, intelligence and spontaneity were a perfect combination when she co-hosted the radio drive show on Melbourne’s Mix 101.1 (now Kiis FM) for two years with Ed Phillips. Nixon also co-hosted breakfast alongside Dave Hughes on Nova in Melbourne for a three-month period.
Nixon has completed a Bachelor of Commerce and Arts Degree (majoring in Marketing and Chinese) as well as a Diploma of Applied Science (Horticulture).
