Kim Komando began her career after graduating from Arizona State University with a degree in Computer Information Systems. She worked for AT&T, IBM, and Unisys before starting her radio show. When she started her radio show in 1995, she tried to pitch the idea to ABC and CBS, but was refused and was told by a CBS vice-president that computers were a fad. She began later on with 3 affiliates in Phoenix, Arizona. She started her newspaper column at the time as well, which was initially published in the Arizona Republic. Kim Komando, along with KFYI talk show host Barry Young, started a parent business for this and called it the WestStar TalkRadio Network.
