Stefanie Suren is executive producer and presenter of In Good Shape. 'Keep it simple and straightforward' – that is her goal as a reporter, producer and presenter on TV and radio. Whether covering health news or interviewing medical experts - staying critical and curious, that’s Stefanie’s aim on In Good Shape, DW’s weekly health show
A Healthy Curiosity
Stefanie has set her sights on health issues, and her research often revolves around one simple question - how to stay healthy and relaxed despite the stress and pressures of work and family life. “It’s quite a task to work or take care of a family and at the same time live healthily, eat properly and exercise regularly,” says Stefanie. “We at In Good Shape want to help a worldwide audience to do just that.”
Stefanie’s approach is straightforward and to-the-point. On In Good Shape, she avoids complicated medical jargon and long-winded definitions of various illnesses. Her goal is to provide helpful health tips in a clear and straightforward way. She aims to promote health and well-being through wide-ranging research, critical assessment and dedication.
Stefanie’s biography is typical of a Deutsche Welle journalist. After studying journalism and Asian politics in Melbourne, in Australia, she worked for several years as a freelance journalist to earn the money for her favorite pastime – travel. Stefanie has explored parts of Asia, Africa, Europe and of course, Australia and beyond, from the Great Wall of China to Ayers Rock.
She went on to a position at DW, training as a television, online and radio reporter. Afterwards she worked for several years as a reporter and producer for Euromaxx – DW’s daily TV lifestyle show. In 2008 she started working as (executive) a producer of In Good Shape.
