Meet Carrie. Often referred to as Australia’s golden girl in the television industry, she boasts a collection of Gold Logie awards and nominations throughout her career in the media. Carrie is most recently recognised for her hosting role on Channel 10’s The Project and co-host on radio show Carrie & Tommy.
Through her public profile, Carrie often acts as an unofficial voice for those who don’t hold the same power. She devotes a lot of time and efforts to many charities, most notably her own charity she established - Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer. This charity cause is close to Carrie’s heart as she lost her first husband in 2010 to a decade-long battle with brain cancer. Research and awareness for brain cancer has historically been severely underfunded in Australia, and her honesty about her personal experiences has raised an enormous amount of awareness of this devastating disease. Since 2015, CB4BC has raised $10.6million and in 2017 Carrie was named on the Victorian Honour Roll of Women in recognition of her work as a charitable and inspirational role model.
