Robby is Kid President (HUB Network)

Robby is Kid President (HUB Network)

In July 2012, the world was introduced Kid President through a series of videos posted on YouTube. Cute, short videos that feature Robby, a little guy with great vision. Those videos have captured America and now Robby has his own TV show on the HUB network!

“Never did we imagine our journey would take us the places it has,” says Brad Montague, photographer and brother-in-law of Robby. “Who knew a little can and string could connect you to everyone from bestselling author Nick Hornby to actor Rainn Wilson or to the President of the United States?”

Robby has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) a brittle bone condition which has resulted in him having over 70 breaks since birth, something he has talked about in his videos. “What’s inspiring about Robby isn’t his condition, but the fact that his condition doesn’t define who he is. In spite of all he’s been through he not only keeps going – he dances,” says Montague.

“The idea for Kid President came a few years ago. My wife and I started a camp for kids who want to change the world, GO! Camp. We were blown away by the ideas and the hearts of the students there. These students wanted nothing more than to leave the world better than they found it. After seeing their creativity and compassion I couldn’t help but think – wouldn’t it be cool if we listened to kids more? The two of us work on each episode together. There’s no fancy film crew or staff. It’s just us having fun and hoping we create something that makes people happier than they were before they clicked play. Our hope is that each episode is received with the same love that started this whole adventure.”

“Kid President: Declaration of Awesome” airs each Saturday at 7pm EST (6pm CT) on the HUB Network. This week’s episode,”Kid President Makes an Episode about Families,” Robby seeks advice from Mario Lopez on how to make a TV show and decides to talk about how families make the world more awesome.
