Liezel van der Westhuizen Emcee is also a sought after MC and has been the Programme Director at more than 200 events for top clients

“Commitment. Passion. Action.”
She may be have been the new face for Season 5 of MNET Idols and only the second woman in the world to present Idols, but Liezel van der Westhuizen has only been working in the home-grown entertainment industry for just over 14 years

Starting out on TV as an SABC 3 continuity presenter as well as the presenter of SABC 3’s live lunchtime talk show – Lunchbox.

Liezel now presents SABC 3’s new daily breakfast show –EXPRESSO and The Sunday Sundowner on 94.5KFM- live from Cape Town.

Liezel van der Westhuizen is so focused on her own passions is entirely consistent with her personality: after all, this is a woman who, as a learner at Pretoria Girls never once missed a day of school, in her entire 12 years spent in the education system!

In fact, Liezel is no slouch when it comes to the other pursuits that she can’t live without: sport and health.

Liezel van der Westhuizen Emcee

Liezel trains six days a week and follow a very healthy lifestyle. In 2009, Liezel was selected for the NESTLE ELITE TRIATHLON TEAM which saw her competing with some of SA’s top Triathletes.

It’s a head-spinning array of physical passions that, when combined with Liezel’s model-looks make it easy to see why she was a Top 8 finalist in the 2007 Shape magazine Sanex Cover Girl competition.

In 2009 Liezel was once again recognised as one of FHM’s HOT 100 sexiest Women in the World, and was Nominated for Olay SA Iconic Woman Award for Media Personality; Liezel was also voted Number 90 in Heat Hot 100

But, for Liezel van der Westhuizen what drives her to push on each day are new challenges and over the years she’s earned a reputation as an MC of note.

That said, with her heavyweight media background, keen intelligence, easy manner with audiences and cover-girl looks, it’s surely not going to be long before Liezel becomes a household name.

2011 – Nominated for G-Sport Style award
2011 – Nominated for Best Dressed at L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate 2011
