BBC's KATTY KAY Immortalized on Saturday Night Live and Jeopardy
BBC News anchor KATTY KAY can cross off two big honors this month.
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE PARODIED KATTY IN A SKIT THIS WEEKEND
BBC News anchor can cross off two big honors this month.
First, Saturday Night Live parodied MSNBC’s Morning Joe program following the announcement that the show’s co-hosts, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, got married in November. "Katty" was shown trying to get a word in edgewise – and then comes back at the very end. Watch the whole 6:06 if you can – very funny. Katty later posted on Twitter, "So now that Claire Foy’s played me on SNL - can I play the Queen?"
AND THE JEOPARDY ANSWER IS...
Katty Kay's name was also seen on another popular television show. A few years ago Katty said she lost fair and square on Jeopardy to Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday. This week she was surprised when she found out she would appear in the form of a question; the answer to which was - "BBC."
On the more serious side, Katty joined MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski and other leading experts and influential trailblazers at the Know Your Value conference in San Francisco on December 1st. There, an impressive lineup of women leaders and achievers shared personal stories of how they've navigated challenges and celebrated triumphs along their individual journeys.
KATTY KAY SPEAKS
Katty often speaks on the subject of women and confidence: KATTY KAY co-wrote the book on the subject. The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance – What Women Should Know (written with Claire Shipman). In her speeches on The Confidence Code, Katty Kay cites research and anecdotes to support both the art and the science associated with confidence and women. As a motivational speaker, Katty inspires women’s groups with a message about confidence, leadership and success because they can all relate to the stories and evidence she cites.

In addition to speaking on confidence, as a British-based journalist in Washington, Katty brings a fresh perspective on American politics and global affairs. She truly does look at Washington from a different angle – and audiences at her speeches appreciate her insights and her humor.
