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 more than 20 years.
Maddern graduated from RMIT with a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies before starting her media career in radio with roles in the newsrooms at Triple M, Fox FM and Nova before moving into television with the Seven Network in 2002.
Maddern’s talent shone immediately after winning a prestigious Quill Award in 2003 for her coverage of Victoria’s bushfires in her first year of television reporting.
Her 14-year tenure at Seven saw Maddern develop into a regular contributor on marquee programs such as Sunrise, The Morning Show, Seven News and special events like the AFL’s Brownlow Medal and Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
Rebecca crossed to the Nine Network in 2016 as co-host of The Footy Show and Australian Ninja Warrior, as well as fronting the network’s coverage of the Australian Open tennis, Cricket World Cup and Ashes.
Highlighting her versatility, Maddern was appointed co-host of breakfast program Weekend Today alongside industry veteran Richard Wilkins in 2020.
Outside of her media work, the Geelong native grew up a passionate Cats supporter and became the club’s Number One Ticket holder in 2011, coinciding with the club’s ninth Premiership.

Bec also dedicates her time to a number of charities and most recently was named the Ambassador for Wattle Health Australia.
