Katie Linendoll

February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“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 a variety of media outlets. Katie is a sports-tech contributor to ESPN, ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine. She is also a weekly tech contributor on CNN and hosts a show on Spike TV. In addition, Linendoll is a contributor to the Today Show. Her career began at SportsCenter, where she received an Emmy Award at age 22.

Sometimes referred to as the “”Chic Geek””, Katie has thousands of hours of live television experience and is also known being a “”one-stop 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.Read More
