THE GEORGE JARKESY SHOW WELCOMES SPECIAL GUEST DARIA DIGIOVANNI OF THE PEOPLES VOTE. KENNETH P. GREEN ALSO JOINS THE SHOW FROM AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE. BRET JENSEN JOINS THE SHOW FOR STOCK WATCH.
Daria DiGiovanni was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and raised in the nearby suburb of Media. The youngest of five children in a close-knit family, she earned a B.A. in English from Villanova University before relocating to South Florida in 1994.
A talented wordsmith from a very early age, Daria’s experience includes copywriting, website content, e-proposal and RFP writing, blogging, book editing and social media. Her first novel, Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, is a loosely autobiographical tale that explores the themes of first love, second chances, family, faith, personal growth, forgiveness, gratitude and patriotism.
In July, 2009 Water Signs won the Book of the Week Award from Blurb! Talk Radio, competing with several other novels for that coveted title. Daria appeared on Blurb! Talk Radio with Dr. Kent and Sally to discuss her work and accept her award on July 15, 2009. Listen to the interview on Blog Talk Radio.
Over three years ago, Daria discovered a passion for internet radio, starting out as a guest on various programs to discuss her book. That experience led to founding Conservative Republican Forum with co-hostSteven Rosenblum in May, 2009. Airing every Saturday at 6 p.m. Eastern, the weekly broadcast — also part of the Red State Talk Radio Network — features commentary on current events as well as prominent conservative pundits, candidates, elected officials and national security experts. Recent guests include Mike Baker, Michelle Malkin and Jedediah Bila.
Daria has also co-hosted Red State Town Hall with Premo Mondone in addition to flying solo with The Liberty Belle Hour, first on WAFS.TV and later on Blog Talk Radio.
She’s also proud to be a founding member of The Conservative Diva with good friend and fellow activist Ellen Snyder.
Most recently, she accepted a position as Director of Social Media Strategies and Marketing with The Peoples Vote.com, a nonpartisan technology platform that makes it easy and effective for citizens to hold government accountable at the local, state and federal levels. The Peoples Vote.com is available to all American citizens, regardless of party affiliation or none at all, or their political beliefs.
