“After 13 years at The Project, I have made the tough decision to finish up hosting the show at the end of the year. It‘s been the hardest decision of my professional life to make this call, but it’s time for a new challenge and my next chapter,” she said.
“There’s so much I’m gonna miss, I’m gonna miss my best mates on the desk, the job itself, which is so incredibly fulfilling. The wonderful viewers over the last 13 years.
“It’s no secret that this show has become a second home to me, and I couldn’t be more thankful to everyone that has been involved on and off screen.”
Bickmore started the show when her son, Oliver, was one. She said she wanted to spend more time with her family, and she also wanted to have more family dinners.
Her three children, Adelaide, three, and her daughter, Eve, seven, are all with her partner Chris Walker. Her late husband, Greg Lange, passed away in 2006.
