When she started her career, Kate Delaney was never sure what direction her future would take. After bouncing from small radio show to small radio show, she finally got her big break at KRLD in Dallas, Texas as a sports director. And from there, her career exploded.
Though it took years of hard work and even harder decisions, Kate learned what it took to pioneer her work into the career of her dreams. Now, an accomplished Emmy-award-winning journalist, Kate understands how important it is to take the necessary steps to craft your future to be exactly what you always dreamed it would be. In her book, Deal Your Own Destiny, Kate shares the pivotal moments and decisions that furthered her career and helps readers understand how they can take control of their futures and pave their own roads to success.
Kate’s message is this: No one’s future is set in stone. You might not decide the hand you're dealt, but you do choose how you play your cards. So own your destiny, take action, and step into the life you’ve always wanted.

Glass ceiling shattered! The Kate Delaney I’ve known for over twenty years has a sensational thirst to devour naysayers … tell her she can’t talk sports, tell her she can’t have a general talk show, tell her she can’t be an author and she OWNS IT! Kate’s unique perspective is a showcase for not only women but anyone trying to get ahead in shark-infested waters!
