Since her announcement that she will be leaving The Project after 13 years, Carrie Bickmore’s celebrated career in Australian media has once again come into the spotlight.
Born on December 3, 1980 in Adelaide, South Australia, the 41-year-old presenter is best known for her work on Network Ten’s The Project, as well as her work on Rove Live and her current radio show Carrie & Tommy on the Hit Network.
What is Carrie Bickmore’s net worth in 2022?
As of 2022, Carrie Bickmore’s net worth is $5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Since moving to Melbourne in 2001, after graduating in journalism from Curtin University of Technology in 2000, Bickmore has made a name for herself as a highly beloved figure in Australian journalism.
In 2001, Bickmore got her start in Melbourne as the afternoon news reader for Melbourne's Nova 100, and, in 2002, she became the co-host of the drive show with Andy Ross.
Not too long after, in 2006, Bickmore made her television debut, starring in Rove Live as the presenter for her very own segment Carrie @ the News Desk.
The following year, Bickmore became the breakfast newsreader on Nova 100’s Hughesy & Kate, before leaving the show in 2009 to begin what would become a 13-year run on The Project.
In May 2010, Bickmore won her first Logie Award, winning the gong for Best New Female Talent for her work on Rove and The Project.
Bickmore was also nominated for the Gold Logie for Most Popular TV personality in 2012, 2013 and 2014, before finally winning the award in 2015.
Bickmore also hosted the 2013 revamp of So You Think You Can Dance Australia for Network Ten, alongside former American Idol judge Paula Abdul.
She then launched one of the landmarks of her career, her charity Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain cancer, in 2015.
Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer serves to raise awareness for her late husband's struggle with brain cancer, drawing on her husband’s fears surrounding his scars to encourage people to wear a beanie to support the cause.
As of September 2022, Carrie's Beanies 4 Brain Cancer has raised over $18 million dollars.
In acknowledgement of her services to brain cancer awareness, and for her work in Australian broadcast media, Bickmore was awarded the prestigious Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 2019.
Today, Bickmore continues to host the Carrie & Tommy show on the Hit Network, alongside her Project co-host, Tommy Little, having done so since the show’s beginnings in 2017.
So, despite her departure from The Project, fans of Carrie Bickmore will still be able to get their daily dose by tuning into the show 3-6pm on weekdays.
