Katherine Clare Timpf (/tɪmf/; born October 29, 1988)[1][2] is an American libertarian columnist,[3] television personality,[4] reporter,[5][6] and comedian.[7] She is currently a regular panelist of Fox News Channel's Gutfeld![8] and appears as a contributor on various other Fox News shows.[9] In 2017, Timpf co-hosted Fox News Specialists alongside Eric Bolling and Eboni K. Williams.[10] As of June 2019, she hosts the Fox Nation show Sincerely, Kat.[11]

Early life and education

Timpf is from Detroit, Michigan. She graduated magna cum laude in 2010 from Hillsdale College with a B.A. in English.[12][13]


She worked for the Leadership Institute's in Arlington, Virginia. She has worked as a digital editor for The Washington Times, as the news anchor for NASA's Third Rock Radio, and as a producer and reporter for Total Traffic Network in Santa Ana, California.[12] Timpf was a 2012 Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program grant award recipient through The Fund for American Studies, and completed a project titled, "As California Goes, So Goes the Nation: The Consequences of Following Golden State Policy."[12]

Timpf has appeared on television and radio programs, including America Live with Megyn Kelly, Your World with Neil Cavuto,[14] Fox and Friends, Red Eye,[15] Stossel, Gutfeld!,[16] The Five, Outnumbered, The Big Weekend Show and The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.[17] Timpf has been a contributor to Orange County Register, Investor's Business Daily, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, International Business Times, and The Washington Times, and a comedian on the morning drive radio show on Baltimore's 98 Rock.[12]

In November 2015, Timpf said that she received death threats after making satirical remarks about the Star Wars fandom.[18]

In 2016 and 2017 she contributed to the Barstool Sports website.[19] She hosted a weekly podcast called The Kat Timpf Show, in which she talks to a guest about random subjects, including her personal life.[20]

On May 1, 2017, Timpf became a co-host for Fox News Channel's afternoon show called Fox News Specialists with co-hosts Eric Bolling and Eboni K. Williams.[21] Fox News Specialists was canceled on September 8, 2017, after Bolling was fired by the network for alleged sexual misconduct.[22]

Timpf's December 27, 2018, column was publicly retracted by National Review. National Review has stated that the column "left out relevant details" of a Title IX sexual harassment case involving students at the University of Missouri. Timpf's story implied that a female student had complained about unwanted advances due to the fact that the alleged harasser was larger than she was; according to National Review, however, a deposition in the case revealed that the alleged harasser "had made repeated, unwelcome advances toward the female student and was found in violation of Title IX for stalking her".[23]

She co-hosted the weekly Fox News Radio podcast Tyrus and Timpf with professional wrestler Tyrus from 2018 through 2023.[24]

She was a keynote speaker at the Young Americans for Liberty's 2019 YALCON in Silicon Valley.[25]

On February 8, 2023, Timpf announced on Gutfeld! that she wrote a book titled You Can't Joke About That. The book was released on April 18, 2023.[26]

Timpf served as a regular host of the weekend comedy show Fox News Saturday Night June 2023 through December 2023.[27]

Personal life

Timpf lives in Manhattan. She was raised as a Roman Catholic and remained a devout Catholic until the age of 17, when she moved away from the faith.[28] She is a libertarian and believes in limited government, no involvement in economic policy, and allowing social decisions to be made by the individual. According to Timpf, "there is something about me for everyone to hate, but there is also something about me for everyone to agree on."[13]

Timpf announced her engagement to Cameron Friscia in August 2020,[29] and they were married on May 1, 2021.[30]
