About Kat Blair.jpg


On graduating from Swansea University in 1999 with a BA Hons degree in Classics, Kat was champing at the bit to embark on her media career.

After a series of work placements with various broadcasters, she secured a contract with the BBC where she stayed for four years working across a variety of programmes: from Watchdog and Rogue Traders in the Consumer Unit, to Horizon and Journeys from the Centre of the Earth in Specialist Factual as a Researcher and Assistant Producer and Newsnight as a Broadcast Journalist.


Whilst Kat's background is in television production, she joined PR Matters in 2008. For 8 years she handled all aspects of unit and release publicity for top independent production companies and hugely successful shows including Hat Trick Productions (Have I Got News for You, Outnumbered, Brexageddon?!, Revolting, Doctor Thorne, Boomers, Room 101, Critical, The Revolution Will Be Televised), Kay Mellor’s Rollem Productions (In the Club Series 2, The Syndicate Series 3), Angst Productions (Mock the Week), Emporium Productions (The World's Most Dangerous Prisons), Kalooki Pictures (Bruce's Hall of Fame), Plum Pictures (Inside the Mafia, James May's Man Lab, George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, Trevor McDonald's Inside Death Row), The Hairy Bikers and Carnaby International.

On deciding to go freelance at the end of 2016, Kat relished the exciting challenge of setting up her own business. On 3rd January 2017, Kat Blair Publicity was born. With an impressive roster of clients - including the Netflix, BBC, Sky, Endor Productions, Little Island Productions, Balloon Entertainment, Kay Mellor and Rollem Productions - the company is enjoying a rewarding and dynamic five years in business!
