One of the Nine Network’s key hosts across sport, news, current affairs and lifestyle. Rebecca Maddern has showcased her tremendous versatility across a media career that spans almost 20 years.
Into her fifth year with Nine, Maddern has hosted iconic programs The Footy Show, Today, Australian Ninja Warrior as well as the network’s coverage of the Australian Open, 2019 Cricket World Cup and Ashes on Wide World of Sports.
In 2020, Maddern is co-hosting breakfast program Weekend Today alongside industry veteran Richard Wilkins.
Maddern graduated from RMIT before starting in radio with roles in news at Triple M, Fox FM and Nova. Her move to Television began the Seven Network. Maddern’s talent shone immediately after winning a prestigious Quill Award in 2003 for her coverage of Victoria’s bushfires in only her first year of television reporting.
From here, her decade-plus tenure at Seven saw Maddern a regular across marquee programs including Sunrise, The Morning Show, Seven News and special events like the AFL’s Brownlow Medal and Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
Outside of her media work, the Geelong native grew up a Cats supporter and became the club’s Number One Ticket holder in 2011, coinciding with the club’s ninth Premiership.
Her polish has also been used to effect by a number of organisations as an MC and host for the likes of HIA, NAB, Myer, RACV, WorkCover, Vic Health and the AFL.
Bec and husband Trent welcomed daughter Ruby in April 2018. She also dedicates a lot of her time to a number of charities and was also announced as the Ambassador for Wattle Health Australia.
