About Me

Kate Partridge RTM Kate is a Sports Presenter for TRT World in Istanbul, as well as a qualified personal trainer and producer of the Reverse Time Machine lifestyle website.

She started out in journalism on the sports desk at the Daily Mail, followed by ITV and Chelsea TV, before gaining a postgraduate diploma in broadcast journalism from Cardiff University.

Kate went on to work at IMG, Setanta Sports News and the Daily Mail Online before joining RT as a sports presenter in 2009.

She went freelance in 2014, working at talkSPORT and Sky Sports, while qualifying and working as a fitness instructor and then a personal trainer.

She returned to Moscow in 2017 to become a news anchor before working at RTUK and talkTV in London, and then moving to Istanbul in 2022.

Kate was educated at King Edward VI College, the London School of Economics and King’s College London. She is a CIMSPA registered fitness instructor and personal trainer, and a qualified teacher of English as a foreign language.

Her spare time is spent writing and researching, exercising, watching football and crime dramas, learning languages, reading, and socialising.

Outside of sport, her favourite working week was spent in a theatre pub, script editing a comedy history series with the late, great Rik Mayall.

And, according to one very loyal and generous friend, she can also dance reasonably well, hold fitness classes, make a mean range of pasta dishes and enthusiastically support West Bromwich Albion.
