With thrilling achievements under her belt, such as presenting E! Online Africa’s ‘How Do I Look’ and Top Billing, we find out what gets Roxy out of bed in the morning; as well as the best piece of advice she has received during her career. Take a look!
Can you tell us more about who Roxy Burger is, and how you came to be in the broadcast industry?
I was a huge KTV fan when I was growing up and told my mom I wanted to present. I forced her to eventually call MNET and ask how I could become a presenter. They advised I get an agent and make a recommendation – I then started auditioning and the rest is history. I did a lot of commercial and acting work before I landed a spot on KTV.
What gets Roxy out of bed in the morning?
At the moment it’s tough to be honest – this new normal is difficult for extroverts. I’m not loving ALL this time at home. But the bills have to get paid and my child needs support so we do what we need to do.
You have some amazing achievements under your belt; what are your most treasured?
I think my overall longevity in the entertainment industry is something I am very proud of.
Describe a typical day in the life of a TV presenter and influencer…
There’s no such thing as a typical day. I don’t work on a daily or even weekly show so presenting comes and goes depending on the gig. I have an office that I use to create content in as well as run the two businesses I own.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
Be consistently professional. Always. And they will always come back for more.
Have you experienced failures? If so, what did you learn from them?
Of course, who hasn’t? I think failures are more important than your wins when it comes to building your character. I’ve learnt that sometimes it’s not about your talent – sometimes you can’t control everything and you just have to let that go.
Lastly, any advice for aspiring female TV presenters out there?
It’s a tough road but be true to who you are as a person and all will fall into place.
