January 3rd, 2011, marked the premiere of the “Top Young Con of the Week” segment on The Rick Amato Show. The Conservative Movement beckons for fresh, intelligent faces. We here at The Rick Amato Show see the importance of promoting young conservatives.
As the producer of the segment, I am responsible for getting activists to appear on the show.
This segment is largely inspired by the efforts of The Young Cons of Dartmouth College. Josh Riddle and Dave Rufful, basketball stars and editors of The Dartmouth Review, triggered a correspondent movement with their viral video, “Young Con Anthem.” Hence, the namesake title of the segment.
Our first guest was John Howting, a senior at Miami University in Ohio. He is the President of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) chapter there, and is a former intern at Human Events. Through his activism, he has brought Jason Mattera, Bill Kristol, Karl Rove, and many other conservative speakers. Additionally, he operates the WMSR Redhawk Radio program, “The World According to John and Tom.” Activists like John bring that spark and originality needed in the Conservative Movement.
The “Top Young Con of the Week” segment will air each Monday. Be sure to listen to the show on January 10th, 2011, when we welcome The Young Cons of Dartmouth College!
