Kate first came to our attention in the mid 1990s with her unfettered opinions and insightful observations on iconic Melbourne community radio station 3RRR, where she was part of the popular Breakfasters. She was noticed by the Working Dog team and became a regular cast member on The Panel, one of Network Ten's longest running shows.
Kate was asked to bring her unique and very personal conversational style to start-up radio station Nova 100 in 2001, and was one of the catalysts that catapulted the station to its ratings success. Along with co-host Dave Hughes, Kate continues to be heard each weekday on Nova 100, and each weekend on the Nova national network.Kate has continued to be a familiar face on Australian television appearing on top rating TV shows The Panel, Dancing with the Stars, Thank God You're Here, Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation and The Circle. With a degree in journalism, Kate also took to script writing, contributing to TV shows including The Col'n Carpenter Show, All Together Now, The Bob Morrison Show, Us and Them, Shark Bay, Crocadoo, Medivac and Neighbours, as well as editing the book Dear Jack (with Flip Shelton). She has also been a columnist for the Melbourne City Weekly, The Sunday Age, Saturday Herald Sun and The Age Green Guide. Life is always interesting around Kate. Celebrated for her original style, wit and free spirit, she never treads the expected path and somehow manages to juggle a frenetic work career, busy social life and motherhood.
