Dana Loesch (pronounced DAY-nə LASH, née Eaton, born September 28, 1978) is an American conservative talk radio host, television host at TheBlaze and author of Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America. Loesch has appeared as a political commentator on Fox News, CNN, CBS, ABC and HBO among many others.

Early life[edit]

Loesch was raised by her mother, Gale, in an extended family of Southern Baptists and Southern Democrats.[3] She graduated from Fox High School in Arnold, Missouri. She attended St. Louis Community College at Meramec before transferring to Webster University to study journalism on scholarship.[3] She dropped out after meeting her husband, Chris, when she was 22 and he was 29. They married and homeschooled two children together.[3]

Career[edit]

After leaving Webster University, Loesch began writing for St. Louis Magazine, doing investigative news articles and began her popular website "Mamalogues". Loesch started her radio show in 2008. Loesch hosts a nationally syndicated, daily program "The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative" on Radio America from flagship station KFTK-FM in St. Louis, Missouri and is also featured on stations around the country.[citation needed] In February 2011, CNN hired Loesch as a political analysts in preparation for its 2012 election coverage.[4]

Loesch co-founded the St. Louis Tea Party in 2009 along with its board president, Bill Hennessy.[5] Loesch left the organization in December 2011.[5] Loesch immediately helped form the Gateway Grassroots Initiative which was composed of many other tea party leaders who left at the same time.[citation needed]

Loesch was the recipient of Accuracy In Media's Grassroots Journalism award[citation needed] and the inaugural Breitbart Spirit Award.[citation needed] She also guest hosts for other national radio talent such as Glenn Beck and Michael Savage. Loesch was added to Talkers Magazine 's top 100 "heavy hitters" in 2012[citation needed] and was number 33 in 2014.[6] Loesch is also a mainstay on the conservative political speech circuit[citation needed] and hosted the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2013.[7]

In December 2012, Loesch sued the parent company of her former employer Breitbart.com. Loesch claimed in court documents that that owner and operator Breitbart LLC bound her to "what amounts to indentured servitude in limbo" after she says she was forced to terminate her contract as the result of an hostile working environment.[8]

In May 2013, after a series of public comments back and forth between Loesch and Piers Morgan on Twitter regarding the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby, Morgan vowed to ban Loesch from his show, Piers Morgan Live.[9] Loesch returned to the show in January 2014 after their producers, who were friends, arranged for Loesch and Morgan to work out their differences amicably.[10]

On January 10, 2014, Loesch debuted her new daily TV Show, Dana, on Glenn Beck's TheBlaze TV.

In October 2014, Loesch released Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America. Reviewing the book, Kelly Young of the National Rifle Association's American Rifleman wrote, "Hands Off My Gun is recommended reading, regardless of whether you’re a proud supporter of gun rights, an ardent gun control proponent or somewhere in-between. Viewer discretion is advised, however, as Loesch also relates in the book many of the threats and insults that have been hurled at her over the years by members of the 'tolerant Left' – many of which are exceedingly vulgar and violent."[11]
