Kate Kozuch is a managing editor of social and video at Tom's Guide. She also reviews smartwatches, covers TVs, tests the latest audio products and dabbles in fitness accessories. Of course, that's not when she's working on building the ultimate DIY smart home. She has conducted over 100 different product reviews across these categories, turning her findings into buying guides and face-offs.
Kate has a strong on-camera presence as well. She has appeared on Cheddar and Fox 5 NY to talk trending tech news. She is also regularly featured on the Tom's Guide YouTube channel, runs the Tom's Guide TikTok account with over 200,000 followers, and features all the tech she's testing on her Instagram. When she’s not filming tech videos, you can find her taking up a new sport, mastering the NYT Crossword or channeling her inner celebrity chef. Speaking of, be sure to ask her about the time Guy Fieri made her a margarita at CES, or when her video of Martha Stewart drinking a margarita went mega-viral. Clearly, Kate has a thing for margaritas.
Kate joined Tom's Guide as an intern in 2019, then transitioned to staff writer, then to senior writer, then to editor before becoming managing editor in 2023. She graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in magazine journalism and minor in information technology. There, she was editor-in-chief of the leading campus magazine, managing both digital and print teams. She's been blogging ever since she got her first iMac.
