Carrie Bickmore has been a shining light on The Project since day one but there’s has been a lot of hard work to get to that point.
Carrie Bickmore was a radio newsreader before crossing over to television. Bickmore made her first television appearance on the Logie winning Rove Live Hosted by Gold Logie winner Rove McManus in 2006.
On the show Carrie hosted a segment called Carrie @ The News Desk. Often the news stories related to actual events, but ended in a twist with a punch line. A running joke throughout the segment was Bickmore’s quirky introductions in which she added a quip, often playing off of social trends, music and popular culture.
Bickmore continued on rove until late 2009 when she stepped down to take on the role of co-host on the PROJECT. The show has a different spin on the news and is an alternative to regular news services.
In 2010 Carrie Bickmore was announced as the Most Popular new female talent at the TV Week Logie awards. In 2012 she was nominated for most popular presenter award and her first Gold Logie nomination. 2013 saw her up for both awards again but unfortunately she was unsuccessful.
In late 2013 she was announced as the host of revived reality format So You Think You Can Dance Australia and this year scored another Gold and Popular presenter nomination.
She was nominated for the Gold in 2012 and 2013 but so far remains unsuccessful at winning the award. Will it be third time lucky on Sunday?
