Carrie Bickmore has re-signed her long-running contract with Network 10, after extended negotiations to up her pay packet reportedly failed.

The Project host has been at the program’s helm for more than a decade and has since become one of the network’s most famous faces.

Not upping the ante

But despite this, the mother-of-three reportedly didn’t manage to up 10’s original offer of $750,000 a year—which is said to be a fraction of Lisa Wilkinson’s rumoured $2million salary.

The claims were first reported by The Daily Telegraph and appear to confirm that Carrie will remain at The Project’s desk beyond next year at the least.

“[The signing brings] an end months of stalled contract negotiations,” the publication reported.

Yahoo Lifestyle have contacted Network 10 for comment.

And while most would be more than happy with the star’s pay cheque, the presenting gig is far from the only way Carrie makes her money.

For the past three years, she’s co-hosted an afternoon radio show with comedian Tommy Little, who also often appears on The Project

These airwave duties are said to result in seven-figure pay packet for Carrie.
