Olympic Gold medallist Stephanie Rice has singed a two year contract with Channel Nine.
One of Rice’s first roles for the network will be for 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
The athletes name is also being dropped around as a potential name for the third season of Celebrity Apprentice which starts filming next week
