From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dana Loesch (pronounced -nə DAY , née LASH 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 Democrats. She graduated from [3 ] Fox High School in Arnold, Missouri. She attended St. Louis Community College at Meramec before transferring to Webster University to study journalism on scholarship. Loesch got pregnant, dropped out of college and got married, having her first child when she was 21. [3 ] Loesch and her husband [4 ] homeschooled two children together. [3 ]
Webster University, Loesch began writing for St. Louis Magazine, doing investigative news articles and began her popular website "Mamalogues". Dana allowed the St. Louis Post Dispatch to run with "Mamalogues" as a weekly column, which won Loesch the ' "Best Newspaper Columnist St. Louis 2007". Riverfront Times Loesch started hosting her radio show in 2008 which is now a nationally syndicated, daily program "The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative" on [5 ] Radio America from flagship station KFTK-FM in St. Louis, Missouri and is also featured on stations around the country. In July 2008 Loesch was chosen as one of [6 ] St. Louis Business Journal's top 30 Under 30. [7 ] [8 ] She was recognized by the [9 ] Nielsen ratings as one of the Top 50 Most Powerful Mom Bloggers. In October 2010, Loesch was hired to be editor-in-chief of [10 ] Big Journalism, a conservative website created by Andrew Breitbart. In February 2011, [11 ] CNN hired Loesch as a political analysts in preparation for its 2012 election coverage. [12 ]
Loesch co-founded the St. Louis
Tea Party in 2009 along with its board president, Bill Hennessy. Loesch left the organization in December 2011. [13 ] [13 ]
Loesch was the recipient of
Accuracy In Media's Grassroots Journalism award [14 ] and the inaugural Breitbart Spirit Award. [15 ] She also guest hosts for other national radio talent such as [16 ] Glenn Beck and Michael Savage. In 2010 she was awarded Best Radio Personality by West Newsmagazine. Loesch was added to [17 ] 's top 100 "heavy hitters" in 2012 Talkers Magazine and was number 33 in 2014. [18 ] Loesch is also a mainstay on the conservative political circuit and hosted the [19 ] Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2013. [20 ]
In December 2012, after the death of founder
Andrew Breitbart in March 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. [21 ]
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. 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. [22 ] [23 ]
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 wrote, " American Rifleman 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." The book appeared on [24 ] Politico's weekly list of non-fiction political bestsellers on December 20, 2014. [25 ]
