Nine’s Today show has a new health, fitness and cooking presenter – Olympian Stephanie Rice, formerly signed but hardly used on Seven network.
Stephanie Rice, one of Australia’s most successful Olympians and one of the most recognised athletes in the country, has joined the Today family.
Her success at the 2008 Beijing Olympics – winning three Gold Medals and breaking three World Records -launched her into the stratosphere of sporting celebrity.
Stephanie now joins the TODAY team and will present in-studio segments and reports on her love of health/fitness and cooking, and, sometimes, all three combined.
Today Executive Producer Neil Breen says: “We couldn’t be happier to have Steph come on board as a member of the Today family – she will be terrific for us and the network.
“It’s not every day you have a multiple Olympic gold medalist join your team. And I don’t think the early mornings will be a problem for her after years in the pool.’’
