Katty Katherine Kay is a journalist, author, and broadcaster of British and Swiss descent, born in 1964. Before hosting Beyond 100 Days on BBC Four, BBC News, and BBC World News with Christian Fraser, she was a presenter for BBC World News America.

Kay is a published author, having produced two works. Kay and ABC News’ Good Morning America senior national correspondent Claire Shipman co-authored a book titled Womenomics, published by HarperCollins on June 2, 2009, that examines how the worth of women in the workplace has changed and how women can redefine their own success.

The Confidence Code, written by Kay and Shipman, was released on 15 April 2014 and is titled The Science and Art of Self-Assurance—What Women Should Know.

With OZY Media CEO Carlos Watson, Kay co-hosts the podcast When Katty Met Carlos. A September 2021 piece in The New York Times questioned the ethics of Ozy Media’s business methods, prompting Kay to leave.

Katty Kay: Sick And Feeling Guilty In A Busy News Week

The illness has spread to me. My former throat area is now filled with glass pieces. My ears feel like they’re being stabbed with hot knives (my husband says this is not true; he lies).

More energy is expended getting out of bed to refill my water glass than I normally use in an entire week. There’s nothing to see of my bed because it’s been buried by soiled tissues.

I sound, smell, and look vile. I stink to high heaven. My doctor has diagnosed me with either bronchitis, the flu, or a combination of the two.

Compared to how I feel, that is tame. And to be honest, I was hoping for a more dramatic diagnosis, if only to clear my conscience.

I need to be at my job this week. Tillerson is now being interrogated. Obama is in tears. Weird sexual misconduct claims are becoming popular. A great deal of activity is taking place.

A great deal of activity is taking place. Not like I have a life-threatening illness or something. Really, you have bronchitis? How pitiful. Fortunately, I know that this, too, shall pass.

And it’s not like I’m sick and a refugee or sick and in a war zone or sick and homeless or sick and about to be fired for taking time off or sick and…. you get the idea.

Though, I can’t help but worry whether everyone at work suspects that I’m not who I say I am. Think I’m too lazy to do anything? That I haven’t got my head in the game enough to keep this job?

Constantly resurfacing, nefarious ideas that are impossible to dismiss. Even though I’m no doctor, I find it hard to believe this aids in the healing process.

I would wager that the majority of the working population is aware of this. The pathology of calling in ill should be recognized as a syndrome in the current day. In fact, I think I’ll just go back to bed for a while.

That was my daily dose of adrenaline. Next week, you can hear me live again. completely cured and absolved of blame. I’m terribly unwell, by the way.
