Rebecca Maddern -
Sizzling blonde bombshell Aussie TV presenter!
Australia's hottest newsreader and television presenter Rebecca Maddern has already built a massive following!

The very stunning Rebecca Maddern has a true passion for knowing what's going on in the world, so when an opportunity to launch a career in news came knocking, she knew it was the right path.

Rebecca Maddern admits to being a bit of a news junkie. "As soon as I wake in the morning, I have to know what's happened overnight and during the day I'm constantly listening and watching news bulletins," said Rebecca.

Born on August 6th,1977 in Geelong, Rebecca attended Morongo Girls College until Year 11, but when the school closed, she had to complete her final year at Geelong College. Rebecca's keen interest in the media began in Year 9, but initially she had her sights on film producing.

After completing Year 12 in 1995, Rebecca Maddern began an Arts Degree at Melbourne University, before transferring to RMIT a year later - going on to complete her degree in Media Studies with a double major in politics and television.

Opportunity knocks
During her final year at university, she started a part-time promotions job at Austereo and by pure accident, or luck, found herself on air not long after. A colleague called in sick, so Rebecca suddenly found herself doing a Triple M sports report.

Her presenting talent was quickly recognised by station management and she began on-air training resulting in her regularly reading the Triple M weekend sport updates.

In 2001 Rebecca began reading the Fox FM afternoon news reports and, at the beginning of 2002, she made the move to Nova FM to read the breakfast news during the inaugural year of the highly popular 'Hughesy, Kate and Dave'.

Simply too stunning for radio
Her ability and appeal continued to be recognised but clearly someone this stunning deserves to be seen and, in October of that year, the Seven Melbourne news director offered Rebecca an on-screen reporting position. (Massive kudos to the Seven news director. Talk about having an eye for talent!)

However, Rebecca did not really have an opportunity to ease in to the new job. Dramatic events were approaching as the tinderbox conditions in rural Victoria culminated in a deadly inferno.

"Within a few months of joining Seven, bushfires broke out in Victoria at the beginning of 2003 and that was when I was thrown in the deep end as a reporter," said Rebecca.

Well deserved award recipient
Rebecca shone and received a Quill Award for the 2003 Best TV News Report for her coverage of the fires, when the Victorian country town of Omeo was under threat.

The only way is up
Towards the end of 2004, Rebecca began reading Seven News updates and filling in for David Johnston on Seven's national 4.30pm news. When David retired in September 2005, Rebecca became the official presenter of the 4.30pm news.

Rebecca's current busy schedule involves presenting news updates and regularly travelling to Sydney as a presenter for the 4.30 news, Sunrise and The Morning news. She is also Melbourne's alternate weekend bulletin presenter. She is an avid Geelong Football Club fan and a patron of a local Geelong charity United Way. Rebecca has also been involved in the Very Special Kids charity for the last three years. Rebecca is also involved in Seven's City of Melbourne campaign:

"I love Melbourne and you can never get bored in this great city of ours," says Rebecca.

Rebecca Maddern is also an accomplished MC and has co-hosted the Melbourne Cup Carnival Myer Fashions on the Field at Flemington with Carson Kressley.
