Multi-talented Gold Logie winner Carrie Bickmore is set to make a return to radio, joining the Hit Network with her very own radio show starting next month.
Bickmore and comedian Tommy Little will be live every weekday from 3pm across the HIT Network, hitting the airwaves on February 13.
The current host of The Project is no radio rookie, returning to the network that initially launched her career. Her first time on the air waves was back in 1999 with the Hit Network in Perth.
The Hit Network’s head of content, Gemma Fordham, said Bickmore was a natural fit for the new show.
“She calls it as she sees it, but has enormous compassion and can connect with everyone from everyday Aussies out in the suburbs to Hollywood megastars.

“I think that’s why the nation has taken her in to their hearts – people know they are getting the real deal with Carrie. Tommy is one of the best comedians out there; he owns the room with his stand-up comedy and media appearances and is one of the most exciting performers going around right now,” she said.
Bickmore and Little will no doubt add to what is already a widely popular line up, their 3pm show immediately followed by Hamish and Andy.
“We can’t wait to start the drive home from 3pm with Carrie & Tommy followed by Hamish & Andy,” Fordham said.
It’s unclear how this will affect her work on Channel Ten’s The Project.
More to come.
