She has presented her own weekly radio show for BBC Five Live, debating the week’s topical News stories with expert guests and politicians.
Kate has a wealth of experience on the corporate circuit and a popular choice for hosting Award Ceremonies and conferences, bringing personality, warmth and humour to proceedings.

Her documentary drew support and praise from the United Nations teams.
Silverton has travelled extensively throughout Africa and the Middle East as well as parts of the Far East and Europe. Her journeys, which began as a teenager, were inspired by a curiosity about the world and in particular, areas of conflict. Her first journey saw her living on a Kibbutz in Israel before hitch-hiking her way across the country to meet people living in the Palestinian Territories – a journey that saw her shot at and teargassed.
Silverton lived with Bedouin in the desert in Egypt and survived being drugged and robbed in the former Yugoslavia. At 19 she volunteered as a venturer with Operation Raleigh (now Raleigh International) and travelled to Zimbabwe where she helped build schools, lavatories and contributed to field studies – being charged by an elephant and stung by a scorpion in the process! These experiences; immersing herself within hugely disparate cultures around the globe; have continued to prove the driving force for her reporting both in the UK and abroad.
Kate is an active supporter of a number of charities including TUSK, Kids Company and has twice taken part in the London Triathlon to raise money for SPARKS children’s’ charity. A keen sportswoman, Kate presented various events at the Olympic Games with a focus on the Marathon and Road Races.
