Carrie Bickmore Wiki

Bickmore began her career as a newsreader on Perth’s 92.9FM as a last-minute replacement for a sick coworker. Brian Bickmore, her father, was a radio announcer at the time and eventually held executive positions within the Austereo network. She was thereafter hired by the station as a regular newsreader.

She started reading the afternoon news for Melbourne radio station Nova 100 in 2001, and she and Andy Ross joined the show as co-hosts in 2002.

Bickmore competed in the Australian Commercial Radio Awards’ Best News Presenter category in 2005. On behalf of Nova 100, Bickmore, Rebecca Leahy, and Michael Colling accepted the prize for Best Community Service Project – Metro.

She was hired in 2007 to work as Hughesy & Kate’s breakfast newsreader on Nova 100. She made the announcement that she was quitting Nova 100 to concentrate on The 7pm Project in August 2009. She left on September 25, 2009.

Bickmore debuted on television in 2006 on the variety program Rove Live, where she hosted the “Carrie @ the News Desk” part for every episode. The news reports frequently dealt with true occurrences but had a twist at the end with a joke. Bickmore’s wacky introductions, in which she would often make fun of social customs, music, and popular culture, such as “Good evening. I’m Carrie Bickmore. Don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?” became a running gag throughout the segment. In 2007, Bickmore made a comeback in a more significant capacity.

The Project, which airs weeknights on Network Ten, has included Bickmore as a presenter since 2009, further raising her status as a television host. For her performance on Rove and The Project, Bickmore won the 2010 Logie Award for Best New Female Talent on May 2, 2010.

Jonathan Green, editor of The Drum, and leaders of the Australian coffee industry criticized Bickmore in December 2010 for endorsing McDonald’s in a piece for The Oprah Winfrey Show, which McDonald’s confirmed was paid promotion.In 2011, Bickmore took a break from The 7PM Project for a while before returning after her husband’s passing.

Bickmore earned the Gold Logie award in 2015. She wore a beanie during her acceptance speech to draw attention to her late husband’s battle with brain cancer and to support the cause; she also urged her colleagues to do the same; she cited her husband’s use of beanies to hide his wounds as the inspiration for the gesture. She then started Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer in November 2015 with the intention of generating $4,200,000 initially for brain cancer research. Two months later, in January 2016, this goal was met.
