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 at age 27. A passionate wordsmith from a very early age, DiGiovanni’s experience includes copywriting, website content, e-proposal and RFP writing, blogging and book editing. Her first novel, Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, loosely chronicles her own 16-year spiritual and personal growth journey in a simultaneously heart-wrenching and uplifting tale of first love, family, second chances, forgiveness, gratitude and patriotism.
DiGiovanni has also appeared on numerous internet talk radio programs, as well as traditional AM channels. Thanks to her performances during these interviews, show hosts Premo Mondone, Stephen Rhodes and Steven Rosenblum invited her to assume regular co-hosting duties on their unique Blog Talk broadcasts — opportunities the author/activist happily accepted. Until recently, on the first and third Saturdays of the month at 9 p.m. Eastern, she co-hosted Red State Town Hall with Premo Mondone, and on Tuesday evenings at 9 p.m. Eastern, The Republican Temple with Stephen Rhodes.
Every Saturday at 6 p.m. DiGiovanni continues to co-host Conservative Republican Forum with Steven Rosenblum, which has received rave reviews from Parcbench.com. She also makes recurring visits to BTR programs Neidner’s Talk Show, Freedom’s Wings, The Black Sphere , Patriot Action Live, The Fritch Show and Young Gun Conservative. And you can find her occasionally on Kevin Price’s excellent show, Price of Business on CBS Radio.
On January 7, 2010, DiGiovanni launched her own internet TV program called The Liberty Belle Hour on WAFS-TV. A high-energy combination of entertainment, insight and debate, the show features accomplished guests from a variety of fields including politics, pop culture, health and wellness, small-business and publishing. With the closure of the WAFS-TV studio at the end of June, 2010, DiGiovanni relocated The Liberty Belle Hour to Blog Talk Radio, where she now broadcasts every Thursday evening from 6-7 p.m. Eastern. The new show debuted on August 5, 2010 with Philly Sportsradio personality Steve Trevelise. And just as before, live chat is always open and calls are gratefully received!
