Kate Russell is an English technology reporter. Russell is from Harpenden, Hertfordshire. She appeared on children’s television in the show Fish and Chips on Nickelodeon in 1995, but moved on to present on technology a few years later, fronting a show called Chips With Everything on The Computer Channel.

Russell has previously featured regularly on CNBC Europe as both a reporter and producer. She has also appeared on GMTV and The Pod Delusion. Russell is a freelance reporter on the Webscape segment of the BBC technology show Click, which is broadcast in the UK on BBC News and internationally on BBC World News.

Russell’s novel Elite: Mostly Harmless was the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised over 400% of its funding goal. It is a story set in the Universe of the Elite computer games. A second novel A Bookkeeper’s Guide to Practical Sorcery, a children’s fantasy, was published in 2016. An audiobook version read by Charles Collingwood was the subject of another successful Kickstarter campaign.

In the 2015 UK Blog Awards she won the individual digital and technology category. In 2016 she was voted the 13th most influential woman in UK IT by Computer Weekly.
