Between 1998 and 2000, she presented the lunchtime news bulletin 13 heures on France 2 together with Rachid Arhab.

After two years in Australia, she became in February 2003 the substitute anchor for David Pujadas on the weekday editions of France 2's evening news programme 20 heures, a position she held until August 2006. During this period, Gaessler co-hosted election night coverage of the 2004 French regional and cantonal elections alongside Daniel Bilalian and, with David Pujadas, live coverage of the result of the French European Constitution referendum in 2005. At the end of 2004, Gaessler also presented the magazine programme on France 2 Immersion Totale, in which three teams were immersed in a public place to watch, listen to, and film anonymous men and women and discussing their "reel heroes". At the same time, she presented La France en héritage, a special show on France 2, dedicated to French history for the European Heritage Days.

Gaessler later became the editor in chief and presenter of the weekly consumer news magazine C'est notre affaire on France 5.

In September 2008, she succeeded Marie Drucker as presenter of Soir 3 from Mondays to Thursdays on France 3. Claire Fournier replaced her as the host of C'est notre affaire.

In September 2010, she succeeded Laurent Bignolas as presenter of 19/20 from Mondays to Thursdays on France 3.
