Programming

We want to enrich
people’s lives

We set out to educate, inform, and entertain. We produce programs that get people to engage. Our content makes people think, gives them hope, makes them laugh, and even makes them cry. Some of our shows can teach you to save money, protect your identity, and learn a new trick or two.

Kim has been offering her unique brand of tech savvy for more than 20 years. She’s been honored many times for the work she’s done on the show.

Consumer Tech Update

Award-winning host Kim Komando offers her :60 second view on the impacts of technology in everyday life. Whether it’s related to politics, entertainment, finances, or education, Kim appeals to a wide variety of people and her Consumer Tech Update informs and entertains. It’s definitely ‘water cooler’ material.

Komando en Espanol

The newest addition to the WestStar family is Komando-branded content for the Spanish speaking audience. Realizing that valuable tech and lifestyle information was absent from mainstream Spanish programming, Kim set out to produce some of her premium content in that language, produced by award-winning broadcasters.

Komando in CAnada

Through a partnership with Canada’s largest syndicator, The Kim Komando Show and related content can now be heard on 300 radio stations throughout the country of Canada. Kim’s television tech segments can also be seen on some of Canada’s most popular television newscasts.
