The Chicks on the Right was founded by Amy Jo Clark and Miriam Weaver in 2009 during a lunch-hour conversation over a bowl of chips and salsa. Amy Jo (Daisy) and Miriam (Mock) went to lunch every day during the summer of 2008, and it was during those lunch hours that they found themselves chatting about politics, the 2008 presidential election, the state of the country, and how they felt underrepresented in conservatism.
The website chicksonright.com launched on February 27, 2009, their social media pages soon after, and ever since, the Chicks’ mission has been to advance the cause of conservatism through data-driven and opinion-driven commentary in an informal and entertaining way. They neither profess nor intend to be political experts or journalists, but rather offer a fun alternative to traditional news outlets and provide a forum for everyday people to have a voice (and a place to poke fun) about their country’s leaders, policies, and political and cultural direction.
In 2013, after an explosion of growth, the Chicks were offered a Saturday afternoon radio show on Indianapolis’ 93WIBC FM station. Shortly thereafter, The Chicks moved to the afternoon drive timeslot, which led them to leave the corporate world and become full-time Chicks on the Right. A few short months later, they landed a book deal, and in October of 2014, Right for a Reason: Life, Liberty, and a Crapload of Common Sense hit bookshelves everywhere
After two years in afternoon drive, The Chicks moved to the 9-11am slot so that they’d be able to continue to write for their website, and also do local and national speaking engagements. They’ve also appeared as guests on such TV programs as Fox and Friends, Varney & Company, CNN Tonight, and various syndicated radio programs as well.
If you prefer political talk that is more buttoned-up than a miniskirt, The Chicks On The Right are probably not for you. We like snark, we like to have fun, and our show reflects that. We don’t claim to be journalists or political experts or economists or anything other than two cool chicks who like to tell people what we think about stuff.
