Kellie Connolly

Media personality, MC & keynote speaker

Kellie Connolly is one of Sydney's most recognised media personalities with over 20 years' experience as a journalist and television presenter.

For 14 years, she hosted Channel Nine's Nightline, one of the network's most credible news programs. As co-host of the Today Show, she interviewed people from all walks of life for three hours of daily breakfast television.

Kellie's career has taken her overseas reporting on major news events, seen her interview international celebrities and question politicians and leading news identities on a daily basis.

These days she is a regular commentator on Channel 7's Sunrise and is a fill-in host and newsreader on Weekend Sunrise and Sunrise. She is also a columnist for News Limited papers, writing a regular opinion column in the Daily Telegraph as well as freelance features.

Kellie runs a communications company specialising in media and presentation coaching so it's no surprise that she is in demand as a professional MC, keynote speaker and workshop facilitator.

Kellie Connolly's greatest strength is thinking on her feet. Vivacious and intelligent with a great sense of humour, she is comfortable with small groups or crowds of thousands. As a facilitator she can cut to the heart of the issue and help your event ‘stay on message'. Most of all, Kellie Connolly is a people person - she loves the opportunity to work with a crowd - and it shows!
