Our keynote speaker this year is our good friend Ari Hoffman. Ari is heard weekdays on Talk Radio 570 KVI where he provides a current of common sense in a sea of insanity every afternoon from 3-6 p.m.
A local businessman and civic activist, Ari ran for Seattle City Council after its failed policies affected him, his family and his community. Now he has a more powerful platform on America’s first conservative talk radio station, 570 KVI, where he continues to expose corruption and hypocrisy in government.
Ari is also known for his humor and pop culture savvy. He never backs down from a challenge and enthusiastically engages with anyone, no matter their political ideology. Ari has been featured on Fox News, Newsmax, The Dr. Drew Show, 60 Minutes, and the KOMO News Documentary “Seattle is Dying.” Ari also reports regularly on Northwest issues in The Post Millennial.
Ari is a guest speaker at many college and high school campuses, volunteers with local youth organizations, and is a certified water sports instructor. Originally from New York, Ari is a glutton for punishment as a Mets fan. He lives in Seattle with his wife and 3 children
