Early life[edit]

Since 1999, Schöneberger has hosted several shows on German television, including Die Schöneberger Show and Blondes Gift ("Blond Poison"), for which she received a Grimme Award nomination. She has also acted in a number of TV movies and hosted such award ceremonies as the Echo award 2009.[2]
