Carrie Bickmore's Biography

Carrie has a bi-lateral approach to news and isn’t afraid to laugh at herself or the weirdness that can often be headline news. 

Previously, Carrie has been the voice behind the weekday news on Melbourne’s Nova 100, and the face behind the voice behind Rove’s newsbreak. Now she co-hosts Network Ten’s prime time news and current affairs program The Project (formally The 7pm Project).

Nominated in 2005 for Best News Presenter at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards, and winning the award, with Rebecca Leahy and Michael Colling, for Best Community Service Project – Metro, in 2006. 2010 saw her winning the Logie Award for Best New Female Talent for her work on Rove and The 7pm Project.

Although born in Adelaide, Carrie is affectionately known as a ’Sandgroper’, thanks to spending the majority of her childhood and formative years in Perth. Since relocating to Melbourne almost five years ago, Carrie has developed a reputation as a multi-dimensional news talent, based on her ability to fuse news reporting with comedy and relaxed on-air banter.

A graduate of Journalism and Public Relations, Carrie first caught the attention of WA’s radio heavyweights during a work experience placement with 92.9FM. As the result of a newsroom colleague falling ill on the job, Carrie was thrust into the studio as an emergency replacement and forced to read the news live to air.

Unscathed by this baptism of fire, Carrie took the opportunity in her stride, and her engaging style of presenting secured her a full time reporting role with the station immediately after switched off the microphone that day.

Coupled with the occasional on-air announcing spot and voice-over work, Carrie is also in demand as a Television and Corporate presenter, and as the current face of SKYBUS TV is involved in filming television segments promoting the best of greater Melbourne.

Carrie Bickmore is a talented host and popular media personality – she makes a wonderful MC or host at any corporate event or conference.
