Kate is a freelance journalist and sports broadcaster who spent four-and-a-half years at English-speaking news channel RT in Moscow, where she presented, edited and reported on the weekly SpoRT Show.
She started out by working on the sports desk at the Daily Mail in London before moving to Granada Television. She was an assistant producer for ITV during the 2002 World Cup and on The Premiership, before moving to Chelsea TV to become a presenter. She then went to Cardiff University to gain a postgraduate diploma in broadcast journalism.
After graduating, Kate joined IMG and worked in various roles including assistant producer on the Premier League, French League and Mainsail programmes, presenter on the Total Rugby radio show, and multi-media news editor on the Essential Sports, French League and HSBC Golf websites, and has covered sporting events worldwide.
She then freelanced at Setanta Sports News as a journalist and news editor, along with sub-editing and picture editing at the Daily Mail Online sports desk before joining RT.
While in Moscow, she has been a daily sports news presenter, Ukraine-based football reporter for Euro 2012 and live broadcast host of Russia’s World Cup 2018 bid. Her freelance work also includes Sky Sports News Radio, FourFourTwo and Champions magazines, as well as totalfootball.com and tribalfootball.com websites and The Offside Rule podcast.
Kate was educated at the London School of Economics and King’s College London, and is also a 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 as a temporary script editor on a comedy history series with 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.
Kate Partridge is exceptionally talented, accomplished and stunningly beautiful sports journalist, broadcaster, editor, TV presenter, television programme producer, media strategist, presenter on radio shows and multi-media news editor. She is in conversation with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have selected the profession of sports journalism that requires a lot of hard work, technical knowledge about different sports and excellence in different faculties to finally succeed – how do you achieve that?
Ms. Kate Partridge: I was originally set for an academic career, with a Masters degree in Ancient History and making Julius Caesar my professional focus! However, I grew up in a sport-loving family, and was always fascinated by the media and performing on stage. So I decided that if I wanted to work in broadcasting, I had to do it while I was still relatively young – and Caesar wasn’t going anywhere for now – so I decided to change careers. I went on a touch-typing course to give me a skill that would get me through the door, and went to work as a temp for Moet & Chandon before getting a job the Daily Mail, and it took off from there.
