And Ann-Marie makes three! With the addition of media entrepreneur Ann-Marie Murrell to the Commentary page at WND today, the entire trio of “PolitiChicks” now write exclusive, weekly columns for the news site.
Murrell today joins fellow “Chicks” Gina Loudon and Morgan Brittany at WND. The trio have co-authored the new book “What Women Really Want,” due for a September release from WND Books but available for pre-order now.
The original anchor at PolitiChicks.com, Murrell is also the organization’s CEO and editor-in-chief. PolitiChicks, which features a webcast talk show and writing from women across America, was nominated at CPAC 2013 as the “People’s Choice Blogger of the Year.” Notes the group’s website: “PolitiChicks.com believes conservative women – with their maternal instincts and warrior spirit – can change the world.”
Murrell, who received Front Page Magazine’s Glazov Gang Ronald Reagan Award for 2013, is a seventh-generation Texan and a direct descendent of Capt. John Yeary, who arrived in the Republic of Texas three years after the Battle of the Alamo. Much to the dismay of her Texas family and friends, she moved to Los Angeles in her early 20s to pursue an acting career, appearing in various TV shows and commercials throughout the 1980s and ’90s.
In addition to her work as a columnist and on-camera reporter for PolitiChicks.com, Murrell’s work has been featured in dozens of political websites including Town Hall, Daily Caller, The Blaze, Front Page Magazine and Jihad Watch. She has been a guest on a multitude of talk-radio shows and has appeared on the “Dr. Phil Show,” Dennis Prager, Fox News, the “Andrew Wilkow Show,” and is a regular commentator and guest host on “The Rick Amato Show” and Front Page Magazine’s “The Glazov Gang.”
As a reporter, Murrell has interviewed hundreds of conservative leaders, and she was one of the last reporters to interview the late Andrew Breitbart.
Murrell lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Mark. Her son, Jason, also lives in Los Angeles and works in TV production. Her new column, dubbed “Line in the Sand,” will appear each weekend on WND’s Commentary page.
