Katie Linendoll

As a tech expert, Katie Linendoll spends as much time on her computers as she does in the field.

Whether she’s challenging IBM supercomputer/know-it-all Watson to a game of Jeopardy!, flying over the Pacific Ocean wearing a jetpack or on a deep sea diving trip to spear the eco-destructive lionfish (custom underwater cameras in hand), it’s all in a day’s work for technology expert, Emmy Award-winning TV personality and writer Katie Linendoll.

Known for her quirky expertise and lithium-ion-like energy, Linendoll is one of the most in-demand tech experts in the country. She is best known for her role as tech contributor on the TODAY Show, but can be found contributing to other outlets such as Fox and Friends, CBS News, CNN, Shape Magazine, Oprah.com, and E! She has written over 60 pieces for ESPN on sports tech.

Linendoll has been tech-minded since childhood and earned her networking certificates before graduating high school. She received her bachelor’s degree in information technology new media from Rochester Institute of Technology, and went on to launch her professional career with ESPN. At age 22, she won an Emmy Award for her work on SportsCenter. She moved on, and a few years later, received another Emmy nomination as the tech host of A&E's We Mean Business.

In 2015, Linendoll was named a visionary in Silicon Valley during the 18th Annual SVForum Visionary Awards. In years past, that distinction has gone to many great visionaries such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Tim Draper.  She recently launched one of the top tech podcasts, Katie <dot> Show, where every week she shares first looks in technology and science and interviews the most notable minds in the industry.

Linendoll introduced Google Glass to the NFL via the St. Louis Rams (a piece that went viral), detoxed (and survived!) in digital rehab, won the Guinness World Record for performing the most “high fives” in 60 seconds and shared a stage with Lady Gaga—all in the name of tech. 

When she’s not working, Linendoll is a fitness obsessive and a committed fan of WWE'.  She serves on the board of the Batcole Foundation, which supports research on pediatric cancer.

Testimonials

"It is actually hard to put into words the feeling I had meeting and joining with the Memphis 'giving' community at the LPBC Signature Breakfast hosted by Smith & Nephew and in partnership with The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence in August, 2014. To see living embodiments of real and true compassion and caring for others, all gathered in one place gave me some sense of the astounding range, depth and sustained good works the business community in Memphis is doing. It was clear to me

"It was very revealing. I had no idea of the broad range of community outreach initiatives involved by the sponsoring members. This is the most positive movement that I have seen in Memphis in a long time and is surely needed. I really enjoyed my visit."
