Carrie Bickmore and Tommy Little will return to the national drive shift in 2021.
The Hit Network has confirmed that the pair will return to their mics in 2021, four years on from the start of the now successful Carrie & Tommy segment.
According to a combined average, and survey seven, of the GFK Radio Ratings, the Carrie & Tommy segment reaches 1.2 million Australians. The segment kicked-off in 2017 and is now heard across 50 Australian stations.
Hit Network head Gemma Fordham said she was thrilled to have Bickmore and Little return to the national drive segment, which runs from between 3pm to 6pm, in 2021.
“When you listen to Carrie and Tommy the most obvious and appealing thing is their genuine affection for each other,” Fordham said in a statement.
“They are friends who enjoy opening up their mics to deliver a show that is full of life and charm, with just the right amount of provoking each other for the entertainment of others.
“We know our audience love the show and want more. [It has] proven to be a ratings success for us and the support from advertisers wanting to be part of the show is incredible.”
Carrie Bickmore said: “2020 has been a strange old year but one of the greatest joys has been the chance to connect with our listeners and provide them with the opportunity for a couple of hours of escapism, great tunes and big laughs.
“We love that privilege and are really excited about returning in 2021 as the Hit Network’s drive show,” she said.
While Tommy Little said: “I am glad we are extending our show to 6pm because it means finally Dolly Parton can listen to us on her drive home from work.”
