Kimberly Kane

Kimberly Kane is the president and CEO of Kane Communication Group. She is an award winning journalist and public relations practitioner. Her team works across multiple communication spectrums to develop strategies that define organizations and inspire business results.

Kimberly grew up in Los Angeles, CA where her father operated a gang prevention and juvenile diversion program. She and her twin sister spent years working with their dad in the city’s most dangerous housing projects. This experience inspired Kimberly to pursue a career in journalism where she saw an opportunity to do more than report on difficult news, but to share stories of hope and to empower viewers with objective information.

During her 15 years in television news, Kimberly won multiple awards, including an Emmy nomination and the creation of highly recognized health segment for WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee, WI. In 2006, Kimberly entered the business community, working in business development, communications and government affairs before starting her own company.

Today, Kimberly is not only involved with her firm and their clients, but is active on numerous boards, advisory boards and committees, regularly emcees events, and is a public speaker – on topics that include crisis management, strategic communications and leadership. She has a BA in Broadcast Journalism and Urban Politics from the University of Southern California and is pursuing her Master’s Degree in Strategic PR and Political Management from George Washington University.
