About The Daily Wire

Not every company kicks off in a converted garage and expands into one of America’s fastest-growing conservative media outlets for news, opinion, and entertainment - but then again, no other company is the Daily Wire. Built from the ground up by Ben Shapiro and Jeremy Boreing, the Daily Wire started as a side gig and morphed into a political news and commentary powerhouse in just 6 short years. Now, the Daily Wire is producing entertainment content, investigative journalism, multiple chart-topping podcasts, and - you guessed it - some fire memes.
