Nixon is currently weather presenter for Nine News Melbourne and Nine Afternoon News.[1]


Nixon began her television career at Channel 9 in 1997. She appeared on the children’s show Plucka’s Place in 1997, before moving to the iconic Australian show Hey Hey It's Saturday as co-host, from 1997 until the shows cancellation in late 1999. She has also worked in radio on Nova 100 in Melbourne and hosted the drive shift on TT FM with Ed Phillips for 18 months. It was during this time that she developed her on-air rapport with Phillips, which led to them to host the revamped version of Sale of the Century called Temptation. She was on this versions entire run from 2005 until early 2009.

Nixon has also appeared on the Today, Carols by Candelight, co-hosted Weekend Today, Things To Try Before You Die, co-hosted the Logies Red Carpet Arrivals (2008–2012) and co-hosted Test Australia: The National IQ Test with Eddie McGuire. She has filed stories for Getaway from Switzerland. Germany, The Netherlands, Samoa, France and around Australia.

In 2009, Nixon appeared in both Hey Hey It's Saturday reunion specials. The popularity of the specials led to the revival of Hey Hey It's Saturday in April the following year, in which Nixon resumed her role as co-host.

Nixon is currently known for bringing Melbourne viewers their weather report each weeknight on Nine News Melbourne – a role she has fulfilled since 2004. In 2011 she also took on the role of presenting the weather on Nine Afternoon News.


Nixon was educated at Lauriston Girls' School and Deakin University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce.
