Carrie Bickmore's Boss Told Her To Stop Swearing On Her Radio Show

Carrie's radio co-host Tommy Little said their boss told her she has to stop using a particular four letter word.

Carrie Bickmore said when it comes to what she does and doesn't say on her popular drive show the Carrie And Tommy Show, she has a test.

Carrie, who co-host the show with comedian Tommy Little, said she will think whether or not she'd be comfortable with her 12-year-old son Oliver hearing what she's saying while sitting in the back seat of a car.

But while careful about what she says, the mum of three can sometimes be guilty of dropping an odd swear word just like the rest of us.

And Tommy noted during a conversion with the Herald Sun that their radio boss told Carrie she has to pull back on her use of the word sh*t in particular.

Carrie Bickmore Thought She Was Getting A Pay Rise, Instead Her Show Was Axed

As the journalist approaches the 10th anniversary of 'The Project', Carrie Bickmore has taken a step back to reflect on the highs and lows of her lengthy career in the media industry.

"She says the most outlandish stuff. In our first meetings, with our boss, the only notes were: ‘Carrie you need to stop swearing. She kept saying sh*t," Tommy told the publication.

“I wasn’t saying it aggressively, I was saying things like sh*t happens, and the boss is like, ‘You can’t keep saying that three times a show’," Carrie explained.

The remark comes after it was confirmed that the duo will be resigning with Austereo for the return of their popular FOX FM show for 2020, which airs from 3pm to 5pm on weekdays.

Carrie further confirmed she will continue co-hosting the radio show while also being a host on Network Ten's The Project.

I’m staying with both next year and I’m really excited about it. When you do two jobs that you love, it makes sense to keep them.

Much like her relationship with fellow The Project co-hosts, Waleed Aly and Peter Helliar, Carrie noted that her relationship with Tommy has also grown and developed over the time they have worked together.

“When we first joined up to do the show, we did an interview and Tommy described us as great mates, and I thought, ‘Really?’ I thought we were just professional friends,” Carrie said. 

“Now we’re great mates.”
