I’m Going to be on The Today Show!


I'll be appearing December 23rd. Hit the jump to hear me gush...

So tomorrow morning I’m hopping on a plane for NYC for an appearance on the Today show on the morning of the 23rd. It’s going to be strange for once heading to place with MORE snow than Montana, but I’m still incredibly excited (also read: slightly nervous) for the opportunity to come out and talk about Double Take in front of millions! The segment will be five to six minutes long, and will mostly focus on my book, as well as my training for this season’s X-Games.

I know that some of you might not be the biggest of morning people, but I would really appreciate it if you passed this around to some of your friends and e-buddies.  And I promise – if I’m not at least somewhat charming, you have every right to track me down and give me a shot to the ribs for stealing some of your morning sleep-in.

See you on TV.

    Hi Kevin– Best of luck on the Today Show this morning! Your photos are brilliant. Looking forward to reading Double Take. PS. The Trailer is hilarious!

  • Beth Clark

    I'm watching now and not only are you charming, your smile is downright infectious (and adorable!). This is the first I've heard about your project and can't wait to read it and look at all of the pictures. And I'm thinking I have a new blog to check! Wow…Meredith just called you gorgeous…the lady has good taste! Best regards and Merry Christmas!

    Mr. Connolly,
    I saw this program this morning. As a photographer also, I was thoroughly impressed. I look forward to seeing more of your work sir.
    All the best,

    Hi, Kevin!
    I “met” you via my television this morning on the Today Show. YOU ARE charming and I will be reading your book. You presented yourself very well. You appear to be a sincere, caring, hardworking young man. You remind me of my sons! In a time when news is available from so many sources, often sad news, it's refreshing to see human beings like you reminding us of all the good in the world. Best of luck in all your endeavors. Stay strong.
    Continue to grow as a human being. We need you for many reasons, but, one is so that we may also strive to be the best, and leave at least one person better offf because we have “met.'
    God Bless you and yours,
    Patty Quinn

    Just watching the segment on the Today Show … I'm not one to take the time usually to write / comment … but how can I not after seeing YOU.
    You ARE an inspiration even though you just told Meradith that makes you uneasy … many of us – particularly in this present economy – have obstacles MUCH smaller than you have and to see that smile – that sense of humor – that love of life you have … THANK YOU – it brings us back to reality – to remember that God gets us through ……..

    All the best Kevin … If / when you are ever in the Chicago area … please look me up ……..

  • Leah

    Great job on the TODAY show this morning. I can't wait to read the book!

  • DaeCoon

    I just saw you on there! Very interesting… I'll definitely have to check out the rest of your site.

    Oh, and for the record, you were definitely “at least somewhat charming.” Don't worry. 🙂

  • millicentgibson

    Hi Kevin!

    I saw you on the Today Show this morning. You were great. It was one of the best interviews I have seen on the Today Show in awhile. It just flowed. I was a little late for work this morning trying to catch it, but it was well worth it. : ) You are definitely charming. I am in awe of God for blessing the world with someone as amazing as you. I am speechless right now.

    P.S. I will be ordering DoubleTake as soon as I get off work today.

  • KPSpoilers

    That was an amazing expression of life and people and the world around us. Your beautiful and wise perspective of our inner reflections, allows us to turn the lens inward and see ourselves and the world more honestly and beautifully. Thank you for this project and thank you for sharing yourself with the world. You are a beautiful man, inside… and out!!! Great interview!

    Enjoy the holidays!

    With much appreciation-

    Ya ta hey. This means Hello in Navajo. My name is Ashli, I'm Navajo, from I'm from Arizona and I just watched you on the Today Show! Your story is amazing and despite your hesitation to the lack of having the title an “Inspriation” I on the contrary believe that you are. There are some many people in this that have their leg and no nothing. You show all of us we could be more. I would love to learn my about your life and and who you are. I am going to buy the book today. I would love to hear back from you and keep in contact. Networking is such an amazing thing. I hope to hear from you soon and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!

    God Bless!

    Here's the link if you missed it on TV….

    Dec. 23: Kevin Michael Connolly, 24, was born without legs. His book “Double Take” contains some of the thousands of photos he has taken of the curious stares he has attracted around the world. TODAY’s Meredith Vieira talks with him about his memoir.

    As my 94 year young Dad has always said, “you play the cards you are dealt.” He lost a leg at 18 years of age, but always let a full life. Kevin, you are a master card player! Thank you for your book, your humor, your honesty and for embracing life.

  • Barb Allen

    talked to my bro and he said that after the interview was done you turned the tables and interviewed Merideth. I want you to share that experience! Hope you had a merry Christmas and that your new year is filled with amazing adventures.
