Alexia Toumikian arrives on the C5N screen with Veer

At just 16 years old, Alexia Toumikian got her first big contract as a model and settled in India for a year. When she returned, she continued with modeling and studied theater and journalism. In 2013 she took her first steps on television at C5N and coincidentally it is her house that receives her again today.

Veer’s history dates back to the beginning of 2020 when he received the proposal to lead an eclectic magazine that has been on the air for two years and proposes half an hour of fun on a tour of restaurants, bars and interviews.

“I had come from covering Paris Fashion Week, it was the first time that I had not gone there as a model but as a journalist and the proposal to do Veer came up. The pandemic just started and we decided to wait a bit but times dragged on and the channel suggested that I start. In 10 days we went out to produce the first program, we did it very quickly because we prefer to start as it is”, says the young driver.

Alexia is young, attractive and intelligent. She perceives the overwhelming and expeditious energy of her. And that is why he was not afraid of the challenge and in the middle of the pandemic Veer began on the screen of Channel 9, on Sunday mornings: “It was a great challenge, firstly because not much was known about the virus and going out on the street was expose yourself At the same time, it was the best thing that could happen to us, because we were able to put our energy and head into producing a program that was almost impossible to do. We did everything by zoom and with network content in a studio that we set up in the cultural center of Mar de Ajó, because I was quarantining in my home, which is in the Partido de La Costa”, says Alexia.

This is how “Veer” was born and over the months and with the breadth of the protocols it was transformed into a program that tours restaurants and bars, with interviews with various personalities from art, entertainment and fashion. It is that in Veer a diversity of worlds coexist that complement each other perfectly. “We always try to have a common thread, whether it is related to the person we are going to interview, or to the moment we went on the air. This makes the program thematic. We want it to be a healthy and fun program, in which the public relaxes amid all the chaos in the world and, incidentally, learns cooking tips, or to prepare a good drink”.

– In a new challenge Veer moves from the C5N screen and at a different time. How do you prepare for this change?

– I am very happy with the new schedule, I adapt well to all the changes. I think there is an audience both for a Sunday morning, which is the people who get up, make some mates and turn on the TV, and for Friday nights, who are ready to have a drink and put on Veer to have fun with U.S.

-In the program they visit restaurants in the city, prepare drinks and do interviews. What content did you enjoy the most?

– One of the segments that I like the most is the “Tour de Barras”, which I usually do with Fabian Medina Flores, where we have a drinking competition and we have a lot of fun, we have a lot of chemistry and they are very funny.


– They have a cooking segment that is dynamic and useful at the same time with good tips for home cooks. How do you get along with the kitchen?

– To be honest, I didn’t know how to cook and in quarantine I began to enjoy the plan and the ritual of cooking. Then when I started cooking in these incredible kitchens of the different restaurants that we visited, I was super encouraged to learn. I already have several special dishes under my belt today and all thanks to Veer.


Why did you choose to do television?

– I like television and everything that involves working on it. There is something magical that happens on the set, teamwork, pre-production work creating what we are going to broadcast and being able to reach every home in the country.

– Are you planning for the future or do you live in the present?

– There is a great ambiguity in my being, the reality is that I have my goals and dreams, I work hard for that but at the same time I let myself be carried away and surprise along the way. I am aware that life is very ephemeral so I try to be as present as possible and enjoy everything.
