Katherine Clare "Kat" Timpf (/tɪmf/; born October 29, 1988)[1][2] is an American columnist,[3] television personality,[4] reporter,[5][6] and comedian.[7] She has frequently appeared on Fox News Channel's The Greg Gutfeld Show[8] and other Fox News shows.[9] In 2017, Timpf co-hosted Fox News Specialists alongside Eric Bolling and Eboni Williams.[10] As of June 2019, she hosts the Fox Nation show Sincerely, Kat.[11]

Early life and education[edit]

Timpf is from Detroit, Michigan. She graduated magna cum laude in 2010 from Hillsdale College with a B.A. in English.[12][13]

Timpf lives in New York City.[14]


Timpf has appeared on numerous television and radio programs, including America Live with Megyn Kelly, Cavuto,[15] Fox and Friends,[citation needed] On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, Red Eye,[16] Stossel, The Greg Gutfeld Show,[17] The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo.[14][18]

She has worked for the Leadership Institute's CampusReform.org in Arlington, Virginia. She has worked as a digital editor for The Washington Times, as the news anchor for NASA's Third Rock Radio, and as a producer and reporter for Total Traffic Network in Santa Ana, California.[12]

Timpf was a 2012 Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program grant award recipient through The Fund for American Studies, and completed a project titled, "As California Goes, So Goes the Nation: The Consequences of Following Golden State Policy."[12]

Timpf has been a contributor to Orange County Register, Investor's Business Daily, and The Washington Times, and a comedian on the morning drive radio show on Baltimore's 98 Rock.[12]

In addition to her contributor role at Fox News, Timpf wrote columns and satire pieces at National Review Online.[19]

Timpf calls herself a libertarian and believes in limited government, no involvement in economic policy, and allowing social decisions to be made by the individual. According to Timpf, "there is something about me for everyone to hate, but there is also something about me for everyone to agree on."[13]

In November 2015, Timpf said that she received death threats after making satirical remarks about the Star Wars fandom.[20]

In 2016 and 2017 she contributed to the "Barstool Sports" Web site.[21] She hosted a weekly podcast called The Kat Timpf Show, in which she talks to a guest about random subjects, including her personal life.[22]

On May 1, 2017, Timpf became a co-host for Fox News Channel's afternoon show called Fox News Specialists with co-hosts Eric Bolling and Eboni Williams.[23] Fox News Specialists was cancelled on September 8, 2017, after Eric Bolling was fired by the network for alleged sexual misconduct.[24]

Timpf's December 27, 2018 column was publicly retracted by National Review. National Review has stated that the column "left out relevant details" of a Title IX sexual harassment case involving students at the University of Missouri. Timpf's story implied that a female student had complained about unwanted advances due to the fact that the alleged harasser was larger than she was; according to National Review, however, a deposition in the case revealed that the alleged harasser "had made repeated, unwelcome advances toward the female student and was found in violation of Title IX for stalking her".[25]

She co-hosts the weekly Fox News Radio podcast Tyrus and Timpf with professional wrestler Tyrus.[26] As of June 2019, she is the host of her own show on Fox Nation titled Sincerely, Kat on which she answers questions submitted by fans.[11]

She was a keynote speaker at the 2019 YALCON in Silicon Valley.[27]
