Television shows are quite interesting, specifically when they have a comedic aspect to it. There are currently several TV hosts who have the natural talent to combine their showmanship with a tinge of comedy, and Katherine Timpf is one of them. The American TV personality, who doubles as a comedian and reporter, has the ability to combine different jobs and excel in all. She is best known for the brilliant role she plays on Fox News Channel’s The Greg Gutfeld Show – a weekly politics and comedy show. Timpf has been on the show since 2015 and continues to appear on it today among other Fox News shows.
Katherine Timpf’s Early Life
Katherine Clare Timpf was born on the 29th of October, 1988 in Detroit, Michigan to a father identified as Daniel Timpf and a mother named Anne Marie Timpf. The television personality spent her formative years in her home state of Michigan where she was also educated.
Katherine had always been a brilliant woman and showed signs of academic excellence while growing up. In fact, when graduating from high school, she was named valedictorian in her class. The intelligent young lady proceeded to study at the Hillsdale College in Michigan, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. It is on record that she graduated magna cum laude.
Added: What Is She Famous For?
Following her graduation, Katherine Timpf found work on different television and radio programs where she played different roles. However, before her stint on television, the Michigan born journalist used to work as a print and video reporter for CampusReform – a conservative website for which she covered topics on fraud, waste, abuse, and bias on college campuses. She has also worked as the digital editor for The Washington Times, as the news anchor for NASA’s Third Rock Radio, and as a reporter and producer for the Total Traffic Network in Santa Ana, California.
Having developed a liking for TV, Katherine soon proceeded to make appearances on television programs like Fox and Friends, America Live with Megyn Kelly, On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, Cavuto, Red Eye, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, Stossel, Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo, Morning Drive Show on Baltimore’s 98 Rock, and The Greg Gutfeld Show. In addition to her appearances on these shows, she was also a frequent guest on many other Fox News shows, gaining quite a number of fans who always tuned in to listen to her opinion. By March 2016, she began hosting a weekly podcast called The Kat Timpf Show before she later started co-hosting the Fox News Channel’s afternoon show called Fox News Specialists.
Outside of her work with Fox News, Katherine Timpf has worked as a writer at National Review Online – an American semi-monthly editorial magazine where she contributes satire pieces and columns on various topics addressing American culture and government. To be more interesting, Katherine loves to use sarcasm, humor, and satire in her work. From what we understand, it would not be wrong to surmise that her sarcastic approach to news reporting has worked brilliantly as her body of work has often been cited by numerous news organizations around the world.
In 2012, the television personality was a recipient of the Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program grant award through The Fund for American Studies as she went on to complete a project titled As California Goes, So Goes the Nation: The Consequences of Following Golden State Policy.
Her Work as a Stand-Up Comedian
Even with all the work she does on television and radio, Katherine Timpf still finds time to perform stand-up comedy. She has cracked ribs at many venues around America, including places such as The Improv in Los Angeles and Gotham Comedy Club in New York.
In one of her performances in December 2015, however, Katherine caused serious controversy when she accused Hillary Clinton, the then-Democratic presidential candidate, of being a ‘fake feminist’ because of the way she acts towards the women who had accused her husband Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct.
A Peek Into Her Earnings Over the Years
Over the years, Katherine Timpf has put in so much work in what she does and has achieved a lot of success as a television personality, writer, and comedian. As such, it is expected that the Michigan native would have garnered quite a fortune for herself. It is reported that the average salary of a show host at Fox News Channel is about $70,000 annually, so it expected that she may be earning something around that figure.
As a result of her almost one-decade long career in and around the journalism world, Katherine’s current net worth has been pegged at an impressive $3 million. Her earnings as a stand-up comedian and author, however, will take the credit for a digit or two. Needless to say that we have not heard the last from Katherine Timpf as she is still very much active.
What We Know About Her Love Life
Although a very popular television personality in America, Katherine Timpf has managed to keep her personal life very private. As a result, not much is known about whether or not she is married or has a boyfriend.
A while ago, news broke on the internet that Katherine was in a romantic relationship with a man identified as Joel Pavelski. However, she was quick to come up with a rebuttal, stating that they were just good friends and nothing of that sort was going on between them.
It was, however, known that she was once in a serious relationship with one of her college friends who has only been identified as Blake. Today, it is not clear who she is dating as the man she usually puts up a picture of on her Instagram page has not been identified as a partner. It, therefore, appears that she is very focused on the work she does on TV and is intent on achieving even greater heights than she has achieved already.
