Katie Prescott is one of the UK’s best-known business journalists. A familiar voice to millions of listeners after a decade reporting for the BBC, Katie was the Senior Lead Business Presenter for Radio 4’s Today Programme and a Business Correspondent across BBC News on TV, radio and online.

She’s now the Technology Business Editor for The Times and a weekly columnist for the newspaper’s award-winning business section. Across the fast-changing landscape of tech, media and telecoms, Katie brings all the key stories to readers, listeners and viewers across Times platforms.

At the BBC, Katie worked across all the corporation’s major news outlets as the on-screen face and voice explaining and analysing the tumultuous changes wrought by COVID-19, the European debt crisis and new technology, in addition to the challenges of sustainability and climate change.

She has travelled extensively for her work, from Tanzania and Rwanda to China and America as well as working as a journalist in the BBC’s New York Bureau.

Katie has a degree in Modern Languages from Oxford and lives in London with her two children.


Our panel required deft chairing. It was a job Katie did with great aplomb, setting the context for the discussions, bringing in the speakers at the right moments for them to make useful contributions.  Her experience as a broadcast journalist was certainly brought to bear, as she adeptly kept the conversation flowing, while ensuring it also remained focused and engaging. Katie was a consummate professional, a pleasure to work with, and someone we would love to work with again in the future.

Katie was wonderful on stage at London Tech Week and a pleasure off stage. She was just fantastic!

Elspeth Garratt, Informa

Katie did a fabulous job of chairing a handful of fireside chats organised for our investors, interviewing numerous founders and partners about a wide range of tech and finance topics. Her meticulous preparation in the lead up to the event brought out the best from all speakers involved, ensuring the discussions hit the perfect tone for our audience.
