Kate then joined IMG and was an assistant producer on the Premier League, French League and Mainsail programmes, a presenter on the Total Rugby radio show, and the news editor on the Essential Sports, French League and HSBC Golf websites, and covered sporting events worldwide.
She then freelanced at Setanta Sports News and the Daily Mail Online sports desk before joining RT in 2009. There, she was a sports news presenter, reporter for Euro 2012 and the live broadcast host of Russia’s World Cup 2018 bid.
Kate also qualified as a personal trainer and produces the Reverse Time Machine health, fitness and lifestyle website. She returned to Moscow in February 2017 to become an RT news anchor, and now presents at RT UK in London.
Kate was educated at King Edward VI College, the London School of Economics and King’s College London. She is a REPs registered fitness instructor and qualified teacher of English as a foreign language.
When not watching football, she spends her time blogging and researching, exercising, socialising and watching comedy. 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.
