Katie Linendoll

Technology Expert; Emmy-Winning Producer; Known as the "Chic Geek"

Katie Linendoll shatters the mold of the typical on-air tech personality. In a few short years, she's earned recognition as a go-to technology expert for CNN and CBS, an Emmy-winning producer on ESPN's SportsCenter and the Emmy-nominated host A&E's We Mean Business. Sometimes referred to as the "Chic Geek", Katie has thousands of hours of live television experience and is also known being a "onestop shop" for networks. She researches, develops and co-produces many of her own segments to create an entertainment experience that's always intelligent, quirky, accessible and unique.

It comes as no surprise that Katie's been enamored with science and technology for as long as she can remember. By the age of 14, she had taught herself how to write sophisticated programs and build computers from scratch. At 18, she held a certificate in computer networking and was enrolled at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She went on to earn a degree in Information Technology New Media, and was recently honored with the 2011 distinguished alumni award at RIT.

The last year of Katie's life has been one of the most exciting. For starters, she became one of the few people in the world to challenge the IBM supercomputer Watson at Jeopardy. She also worked alongside Lady Gaga as spokesperson and presenter for Polaroid at CES. Additional promo work included an appearance in a series of Lincoln commercials/webisodes, which gained traction online and also on in-flight screens across the country. Currently, Katie continues contribute to the CBS The Early Show and CNN Newsroom, discussing everything from the politics of internet privacy to the hottest new consumer electronics. She's also the resident tech expert for The Nate Berkus Show.

Katie has showcased her expertise on the Style Network, ABC News Now, LXTV and AOL.com. She has blogged for Oprah.com, The Nate Berkus Show and DELL, and worked with HP on a multimedia project. Katie spent two years as HSN's resident tech expert and accrued over 20 million in sales for the network. One of her favorite roles was as the co-host of A&E's Emmy-nominated series "We Mean Business", where she teamed up with Bill Rancic and Peter Gurski to rehabilitate struggling small businesses with tech, business and style makeovers.

Katie has been featured in People Style Watch, Fitness, Forbes.com, Journal News, the New York Daily News, Marie Claire and The Chicago Tribune, amongst others. She hails from suburban Pennsylvania where she's the youngest of four girls, and currently lives in New York City, where she's studied with the top professionals for hosting, voice and improv (at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater).

In her spare time, Katie likes to participate in wing eating contests, build her ever-growing Pez dispenser collection and watch her essential weekly allotment World Wrestling Entertainment. She's also a proud volunteer at the NYC charity Candlelighters, an organization that provides resources for children with cancer.
