She was with RTL for 30 years, shaped the face of the station and was very popular with the audience thanks to her funny weather forecasts. Now Maxi Biewer is turning her back on her work at the TV station. The long-time weather expert is leaving the station after three decades, as reported by RTL.
Maxi Biewer sets the sails
“On the one hand, it’s sad when we no longer have colleagues around us or we gradually lose touch with each other. On the other hand, we’re happy that a piece of happiness in life and a dream are being fulfilled,” Björn Alexander continues. Maxi Biewer and her husband are now traveling on a boat. “In summer we go to the Canary Islands. Then, at the end of the Atlantic hurricane season, we will continue sailing towards the Caribbean,” the weather expert is quoted as saying.
Biewer already announced on Instagram in February that she was going “in semi-retirement”. “Thank you to all the viewers who have let me into their lives for 30 years,” she wrote. “I owe it only to you that I was allowed to make the weather for sooo long, and you also shaped my life with it.”
The career of the 57-year-old at RTL started in 1992. Since then, she has presented more than 15,000 weather forecasts from “Guten Morgen Deutschland” to “RTL Aktuell”. Maxi Biewer was also used as a weather expert in the programs of n-tv, Vox and RTLzwei.
Biewer’s colleague Björn Alexander remembers the time at Biewer’s side. There are “not many people who radiate as much charm and energy in the morning hours as Maxi Biewer,” he explains. “In thousands of weather programs, millions of people were able to convince themselves of this every day and obtain comprehensive and competent information about the weather.”
