2020 Keynote Speakers
Ben Shapiro & Ana Kasparian
Described in The New York Times as a “principled gladiator,” Ben Shapiro has emerged as one of the leading voices of millennial conservatism. Ben Shapiro is editor-in-chief of DailyWire.com, host of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” the top conservative podcast in the nation and syndicated radio show in the top ten markets, and a leading conservative speaker on college campuses, consistently defending free speech and open debate. Shapiro is the author of seven books, including The New York Times best-seller, Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America. Shapiro is also a nationally syndicated columnist since age 17, and a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School. Rush Limbaugh says Shapiro isn’t just “content to have people be dazzled by his brilliance; he actually goes out and confronts and tries to persuade, mobilize, motivate people.”
With a sharp sense of humor and pointed wit rivaling anyone in the industry, Ana Kasparian has captivated viewers as host and producer of the online news show The Young Turks and a new show titled “NoFilter” where Ana expresses her unfiltered opinion and commentary on tough topics. Her bold and intelligent style has transformed her into a favorite of millions, while playing a vital part to the astronomical rise of TYT, the largest online news show in the world. Her honest coverage and dedication to truthful commentary was honored in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2016 and in the Daily Dot as one of the Top Women of YouTube. Prior to TYT, Kasparian has also served as a contributor on MSNBC and Pivot. As a dynamic speaker with the natural ability to connect and engage people, she uses her platform to provide a voice to those who are silenced around the world.
