Kat Carney  

Former Health News Anchor, CNN Headline News

Kat Carney is a former CNN heavyweight, 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 audiences and provides them with tools they can use in their daily lives. Her experience in broadcast journalism, encompassing nine 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 behind-the story truths about newsworthy health issues.

Carney has interviewed numerous health newsmakers for CNN, including author and alternative medicine pioneer Dr. Deepak Chopra; Dr. Nicholas Perricone, best-selling author of The Wrinkle Cure; Bob Greene, personal trainer and author of Get with the Program; and former Weight Watchers spokeswoman Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. Before joining CNN Headline News, Carney hosted the medical documentary series The Body Invaders for the Discovery Health Channel; she also served as a health correspondent for Fit: Resort and Spa. Earlier, Carney hosted Vacation Living, a travel vacation series for HGTV, and was the co-host of the nationally syndicated series DreamMaker with health and fitness guru Richard Simmons.

Although she's logged 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 commitment to providing women and men with concrete strategies to improve their lives is 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, 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 one million monthly visitors, SoulCysters has become the largest and most recognized community for women with this common but commonly misunderstood endocrine disorder.
