About Kim

Kim Komando – “America’s Digital Goddess” – is one of American’s most successful radio hosts and Web entrepreneurs – and a trusted guide to millions through the thickets of today’s digital lifestyle.

“The Kim Komando Show,” a three-hour call-in weekly radio show on technology, and Komando’s daily “Digital Minute” news reports, are heard on hundreds of radio stations across the country and hundreds more around the world. Her busy website, daily newsletters, numerous books, and weekly USA Today column reach millions of others.

“The Show” live production, is broadcast from Phoenix, Ariz., each Saturday morning. It is currently carried on over 450 stations with an estimated reach of 6.5 million listeners.

“It’s not about techies and computer-troubleshooting anymore,” she says. “It’s now about a lifestyle – the lifestyle of a digital age.”

Komando has worked in the computer industry since the age of 16, ultimately selling Unisys mainframes to corporate clients. In 1992, she followed a hunch that regular consumers were going to need help coping with a looming digital world. She left her corporate job to write and broadcast on digital issues. She began her radio career with a late-night call-in show about computers on Phoenix’s 550 KFYI-AM.

More than 20 years later, the Kim Komando Show is the largest weekend radio show in the country. On a busy Saturday morning, the show can receive 50,000 calls an hour. Her audience also follows her writing on Komando.com, about everything from how to buy a smartphone, tablet or TV to news updates on the latest data theft or NSA spying revelation.

Komando is a star in the talk-radio community as well. She received the Gracie Award for Outstanding Program Host in 2007. In 2009, she was named Talker Magazine’s “Woman of the Year.” She was an invited speaker at Fortune Magazines’ 2009 Most Powerful Woman Summit – and was even the answer to a question in Trivial Pursuit.

Komando and her husband, Phoenix radio personality Barry Young, built their first studio on a shoestring in 1994. Today they operate their own WestStar radio network from a bursting-at-the-seams 6,000-square-foot facility in Phoenix, with plans underway for a new headquarters quadruple the size.

“I am relentless in my pursuits,” says Kim. “It’s a lot of hard work, but when you dig what you do, it makes it a lot more fun.”

Komando and Young live in Phoenix with their teenage son.

If you don't already have a "dumb" phone as your backup phone, there's a good chance you'll want one. Or maybe you have a phone that's not super smart for older members of your family or kids who aren't quite responsible enough for a $1,000...

I have a "slider" in a desk drawer "just in case".

How does Facebook determine what posts to remove? That Facebook has policies of what is and is not acceptable on its platform comes as little surprise. As much freedom as they give us all to post, the first amendment really does not apply and therefore...

They block conservatives and encourage liberal hate
Facebook needs to make this policy loud and clear so that everybody knows what it is even I have not read that policy. It should not be a secret.
Is it government restrictions..if no then it's not a violation.
I find nothing wrong about the stated policies ... so far.
Mention tide pods and safe spaces on cnn will get you 30 days in jail 😆😆😆
I know exactly how they do it
People are Joining MEWE now..
