Meet the host, Kim Komando
Kim Komando – “America’s Digital Goddess” – is one of America’s most successful radio hosts and Web entrepreneurs – and a trusted guide to millions through the thickets of today’s digital lifestyle.
Komando has worked in the computer industry since the age of 16, ultimately selling Unisys mainframes to corporate clients. In 1992, she followed a hunch that regular consumers were going to need help coping with a looming digital world. She left her corporate job to write and broadcast on digital issues. She began her radio career with a late-night call-in show about computers on Phoenix’s 550 KFYI-AM.
More than 20 years later, the Kim Komando Show is the largest weekend radio show in the country. On a busy Saturday morning, the show can receive 50,000 calls an hour. Her audience also follows her writing on Komando.com, about everything from how to buy a smartphone, tablet or TV to news updates on the latest data theft or NSA spying revelation.
Komando is a star in the talk-radio community as well. She received the Gracie Award for Outstanding Program Host in 2007. In 2009, she was named Talker Magazine’s “Woman of the Year.” She was an invited speaker at Fortune Magazines’ 2009 Most Powerful Woman Summit – and was even the answer to a question in Trivial Pursuit.
