Carrie has been co-hosting Network Ten’s The Project for the past six years. During that time she has delivered live news ‘but not as you know it’ to homes across Australia. She has traveled the world for stories including the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in New York, interviewed celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Will Ferrel and Sarah Jessica Parker. As well as falling over live on air.Carrie’s popularity has grown to such an extent she received a TV Week Logie Award for Best New Talent in May 2010, and was nominated for a Gold Logie in 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2015, Carrie was honored to receive the Silver Logie for Best Presenter and also be awarded the Gold Logie for Most Popular person on television. Carrie used this opportunity to raise awareness for Brain Cancer, encouraging everyone to get involved and wear a beanie for brain cancer. The response was overwhelming!
