Hello and Welcome!
I’m glad that you found me. Having grown up in the digital age, I love having a career that keeps me at the forefront of science and technology innovations. Below are some of my formal resume bullets to help you get to know me better. Want to connect? Don’t be afraid to reach out and say hi. Think of me as your friend…. with connections ;)
I am best known for my role as a tech contributor on the TODAY Show, but you can also find me contributing as a tech expert on a variety of platforms, including Fox News, HLN and The Weather Channel.
I spend equal time in the field being hands on, as I do on my laptop conducting in-depth research. Whether I’m diving underwater with NASA astronauts, witnessing the ways in which mobile technology can help to rebuild the Philippines economy in the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan or sharing a first look at the newest iPhones on the TODAY Show, I am on always on the hunt for the latest tech stories.
My love of technology started when I was young. I received an IT degree in new media from the Rochester Institute of Technology and began working behind the scenes for ESPN. I was the proud recipient of an Emmy Award for my work on SportsCenter andwas also nominated for a second Emmy for my work as a co-host (aka the tech host) on A&E’s We Mean Business, a reality show that helped revamp small businesses across America.
As a writer, I have contributed over 60 pieces to ESPN on sports tech, worked as a contributor to CBS and CNN and written for various other outlets including Shape Magazine, Oprah.com, E! and Popular Science.
As the founder of Katie Linendoll Productions, my team produces content for a number of top clients and outlets, such as Popular Science, Capital One and RetailMeNot.
I travel the world delivering keynote speeches on innovations in technology, host and moderate various expert panels, and collaborate with various forward thinkers and celebrities—from top chefs to world-class innovators—to help them share their unique messages.
A lifelong fan of WWE wrestling, I’m a frequent guest of The Taz Show and Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast and I’ve produced several professional WWE pieces for Sports Illustrated, Men’s Journal, and the WWE Network.
My weekly tech podcast, Katie Linendoll <dot> Show, shares first looks in technology and science with the most notable minds in the industry. The podcast has climbed to as high as #4 in the iTunes technology charts and has been featured twice by Apple.
- In my spare time, you can find me working out at the gym,running the trails or playing the piano. Giving back is also important to me and I serve on the board of the Batcole Foundation, which supports research and awareness of pediatric cancer.
That’s just a little taste of my journey. I’d love to share more with you (like how I sold $20 million in products on the Home Shopping Network and hold a Guinness World Record–true story!). But I think I’ll save those stories for another time.
