Slate was best known as a regular commentator on many VH1 "talking head" commentary programs.

Slate appeared as Liz B. in the recurring "PubLIZity" sketches in Kroll Show, as well as many other recurring and one-off characters, performing in some capacity in almost every episode until the series ended in 2015. In 2016, Slate voiced Dawn Bellwether in the Disney animated comedy-adventure film Zootopia and Gidget in the animated feature The Secret Life of Pets.

Slate and her father co-wrote a book about their time living in Slate's childhood home in Milton, Massachusetts, titled About the House, which was published in December 2016.
