Kate Betts

Kate Betts is the director of media and PR consultancy Capital B Media, which has offices out in the countryside near Penistone. Before setting up the company, Kate worked for nearly ten years for the BBC, mainly in radio. She also worked briefly for YTV’s Calendar and as a video-journalist for Look North – but never appeared on screen!

Kate’s first job in journalism was at a weekly newspaper back in the days when writing was done on typewriters; phoning the office while out on a job meant finding a phone box, and research was a lot more complicated than just using Google. She is now proud to call the borough of Barnsley her home, but used to live down south in Sheffield.
