Rebecca Maddern has announced she will be returning to Seven, after spending several years at Nine. 

Maddern made a name for herself by co-hosting Seven’s Afternoon News and Sunrise. Before leaving the network for Nine – where she co-hosted shows like Ninja Warrior and Weekend Today.

However, Maddern is now back at her old stomping grounds and is back at Seven! She will be joining Melbourne’s top-rating 7NEWS presenting team led by Peter Mitchell, taking a new seat at the desk alongside Mike Amor on weekends.

Starting this Wednesday Maddern and Amor will co-present Melbourne’s 7NEWS while Mitchell takes a much-deserved break after a relentless year dominated by breaking news.

The duo will then co-host weekend editions on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Maddern said: “I’m thrilled to be returning home to Channel 7 and so happy to be going back to where it all began. I’ve had many TV roles in my 23-year career, but none more important than delivering the news.

“In the past two years, news has never had a more direct impact on our day-to-day lives. I’m honoured to be returning to the news desk to inform Melburnians about what they need to know.

“I’m also delighted to be teaming up with my friend Mike Amor. Mike is one of the best journalists in this country and I know we’re going to make a formidable team.”

Amor added: “Bec is not just a fantastic broadcaster and journalist, but also a dear friend, and I can’t wait to share the news desk with her.

“Bec will bring a deep understanding of what makes Melbourne tick, the key newsmakers and issues that matter, and the ability to cover breaking news with ease, as well as a cracking sense of humour.”

Director of 7NEWS Melbourne, Shaun Menegola, said: “We’re thrilled to have Bec back on the 7NEWSteam where she spent 14 years reporting on major events in this state, including her coverage of the 2003 bushfires, which was recognised with a Quill Award.“She will add even more experience to our line-up, led by Peter Mitchell, Mike Amor, Tim Watson, Jane Bunn and Jacqui Felgate.”

The announcement follows a remarkable year for 7NEWS, with Australia’s #1 news service winning every week of the survey year.
