Panelist: Kat Carney
Episodes in which Kat Carney appears
Kat Carney is a former CNN heavyweight-both literally and figuratively, but her style is decidedly lighthearted and upbeat. Whether she's speaking about her personal experience of losing a whopping 90 pounds after a lifetime of obesity, or sharing the media savvy she developed as the Consumer Health anchor for CNN Headline News, Carney's energizing style engages your audiences and provides them with tools they can use in their daily lives. Her experience in broadcast journalism, encompassing 9 television networks from CNN to HGTV, is the backdrop for Carney's unique blend of expertise and accessibility. While she can cut through media hype with surgical precision, Carney turns to humor when sharing with her audience the story behind-the story truths about newsworthy health issues.
Although she's logged in countless hours of airtime, and her personal perspective on health-related topics is frequently featured in national outlets including The New York Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal, at heart Carney sees the world through the eyes of the consumer. Her ability to demystify complex topics and her committment to providing women and men with concrete strategies to improve their lives are a winning combination.
Carney's personal story-as a woman who has overcome her weight issues and succeeded in broadcast journalism without a college degree, along with her refreshing perspective on a variety of topics, is a source of motivation and inspiration to audiences hungry for a dose of, „I can do it!" In addition to her work in front of the camera, Kat Carney is active in raising awareness of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). In 1999, she founded SoulCysters.com. Today, with over 30,000 registered members, and close to 1 million visitors monthly, SoulCysters has become the largest, and most recognized community for women with this common, but commonly misunderstood, endocrine disorder.
