I'm so happy to announce that our good friend, political commentator and blogger Crystal Wright will be joining the show as a special co-host for our LIVE! CPAC shows scheduled for next Thursday and Friday at 12 PM.
For those of you who don't know, Crystal is the editor and publisher of Conservative Black Chick, a fantastic conservative blog borne out of her frustration from "people telling me because I’m a black woman I couldn’t be a Republican and should be a Democrat because of the mere color of my skin." Check out her latest blog posting HERE,
Crystal is also an in-demand political expert who has appeared on several programs on CNN, BET and TVOne and has written pieces published in The Daily Caller and Townhall.com. She is also the principal owner of the Baker Wright Group, LLC , a full service public relations firm, specializing in communications counseling, media relations, message development, media training and crisis communications.
We first talked to Crystal in October - one of our most-listened to shows ever! Everyone loved Crystal - especially our resident elder statesman Vinny Bocchino, who constantly reminded me to tell Crystal that he said "Hi!" when I see her in D.C.!
Having a bona-fide expert like Crystal as a special co-host for our two CPAC shows is beyond anything I could’ve ever expected! Not only does she have her finger on the pulse of conservative politics, I know she'll bring a fresh perspective (not to mention a much-needed women's touch to our usual boy's club / frat house atmosphere) to our CPAC coverage.
Plus on a personal level, she totally kicks ass! I can’t wait to work with her!
Keep checking back for more big announcements as we get ready for CPAC!
