As Carrie Bickmore prepares to leave The Project next week, the host has confirmed her radio show is here to stay.
The Hit Network announced on Monday that Carrie and her co-host Tommy Little, will continue hosting their national radio show Carrie & Tommy for the next four years.
Carrie and Tommy have been hosting the show together since 2017, with the pair sharing their excitement to continue doing so.
"This show is such an incredible joy for me and being able to bring that joy to our listeners for another four years is extremely exciting," Carrie said in a statement. "We already have so many thrilling adventures locked in for 2023 but in true Carrie & Tommy style, I am sure none of those will go as planned!"
"We’re here for a good time and a long time. Carrie is my best mate so another four years of riding her coat tails is a dream come true," Tommy jokingly added.
SCA Chief Content Officer, Dave Cameron, added, "SCA is delighted that Carrie and Tommy have committed to another four years of their leading national Drive program. Keeping them in the Hit Network family for the long-term was key for SCA and we know our listeners will be the thrilled with the news. Carrie and Tommy are both filled with humour and heart, which is what makes the show so distinctive."
Carrie to leave Channel Ten after Project exit
It comes following confirmation Carrie will be leaving Channel Ten when she finishes with The Project, with a spokesperson telling TV Tonight, "Yes, Carrie is leaving 10, but we hope to work with her again."
Carrie has been working with Ten for 17 years, with 13 of those spent on The Project.
Last month, the Daily Mail reported that insiders were suggesting Carrie's management is in talks with Seven, Nine and Ten about what the future may hold.
While Ten hasn't announced the host's replacement yet, Carrie’s close friend and regular panellist Kate Langbroek has just revealed the top three contenders.
"Everyone’s racking their brains to think of the perfect person, and it’s really hard to replace Carrie, because she’s got a very broad skill set in that she’s a journalist, but she’s also into pop culture, and she’s topical, and she looks beautiful and she engages at the desk," Kate told host Andrew Bucklow.
The radio presenter added that it would be ‘very hard’ for Ten to find a panellist who can tick all those boxes.
When pushed further, Kate confirmed that Carrie’s replacement would likely be Chrissie, Georgie or Sarah, saying: "Well, I actually think there’s probably a good chance of it being one of those three."
