Stephen Kent is a communications and public relations professional in the Washington D.C. area. He serves as the spokesperson and head of PR for Young Voices, a non-profit public relations firm aimed at elevating next-generation leaders in conservative and libertarian public policy, academia, and media. Stephen pitches and prepares young commentators and political writers for TV news, talk radio, and also consults on podcast creation and personal brand marketing.
Stephen has booked with Fox News, Newsy, Cheddar, CNN, C-SPAN, Fox Business, i24 News, Spectrum News, WJLA, Fox 5 DC, WUSA 9, BlazeTV and numerous nationally syndicated talk radio programs. He is a recurring commentator on Fox Business, The Glenn Beck Radio Program, and does entertainment commentary for WUSA 9, Fox 5 DC, and is a contributor to the Washington Examiner. His written work has also appeared in USA TODAY, The Federalist, The News & Observer, Charlotte Observer, RealClearPolitics, and The American Conservative.
On the side Stephen hosts the popular Star Wars & politics podcast, Beltway Banthas, helming more than 150 episodes and interviewing high profile guests across politics and media who are fans of the franchise. Oddly enough, his path to traditional media ran through podcasting first. Beltway Banthas helped to launch Kent into public speaking, doing panels at fan conventions and political events, and then onto TV as a commentator.
Stephen resides outside of the beltway in Manassas, Virginia with his wife, daughter, and a good good dog named Kylo.
