Career

Radio

Bickmore started her career as the afternoon newsreader for Melbourne radio station Nova 100 and in 2002 she became co-host of Nova's drive show.

She was a 2005 Best News Presenter finalist in the Australian Commercial Radio Awards.[2] Bickmore and Rebecca Leahy accepted the award for Best Community Service Project - Metro, on behalf of Nova 100.[3] In 2007, Bickmore was appointed the breakfast newsreader on Hughesy & Kate on Nova 100. In August 2009, Bickmore announced that she will be leaving Nova 100 to focus on The 7PM Project in September, her last day was 25 September.

Television

In 2006, Bickmore made her foray into television on variety show Rove Live, presenting the Carrie @ the News Desk segment for each episode. Her voice, behaviour and appearance for this segment were a parody of Channel Ten newsreader Sandra Sully. Often the news stories related to actual events, but ended in a twist as the punchline. 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. In 2007, Bickmore returned to the show with a more important role. While she still appeared in the news segment, it was no longer done as a Sandra Sully parody.

As of July 2009, Bickmore is a presenter on The 7PM Project airing weeknights on Network Ten and has further expanded her profile as a TV personality.
