If you a big fan of sports, then it is most probable that you already know one or two things about Kate Abdo. She is one of the familiar faces in sports journalism and has done well for herself in the field, establishing herself as one of the finest and a force to reckon with in the male-dominated sphere. 

As an English Presenter, Kate has gained worldwide fame and is known across the globe as a journalist. She has been working for Sky Sports News in the United Kingdom and it was only in January 2017 that she officially joined Fox Sports. Since then, she has been primarily serving as the network’s studio host for its extensive soccer coverage. Her duties revolve around presenting and hosting the numerous programs of Fox Sports.

We have traced Kate’s beginning in sports journalism to 2003 and 2004 when she gathered her earliest working experience for 6 months in Munich and another 6 months in Paris. Shortly afterwards, from September 2005 to September 2006, she served as an intern in the Foreign Languages Editorial Department with Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany’s public international broadcaster. Her duties then include translating stories form German and Spanish to English.

In September 2006, she became a production assistant for DFL (German Football League). Here, she worked with the production team of DFL’s global Bundesliga show – Goal! -, taking charge of producing reports for a Spanish language version. By June 2007, she stopped working with DFL; meanwhile, she continued serving at DW as sports anchor until June 2009.

The following month, she began serving in the same capacity for CNN International. While she wrote and presented “World Sports” for the news network from studios in London and Atlanta, she equally reported for CNN en Espanol and covered major sports events. Kate was with CNN until July 2011. In August the same year, she emerged as head presenter for Sky Sports News HD in Munich.

Her successful role as the leader of a team of 14 anchors helped her become a tv presenter with Sky Sports in London in January 2014. Kate would later, in December 2015, become a tv presenter for Fox Sports in LA and officially join the media establishment in 2017 as a studio host.
