From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dana Loesch (pronounced -nə DAY , née LASH Eaton, born September 28, 1978) is a conservative talk radio host and a host and contributor at TheBlaze. Loesch has appeared as a political commentator on Fox News, CNN, CBS, ABC and HBO.
Early life [ edit ]
Dana Loesch graduated from
Fox High School in Arnold, Missouri. She attended St. Louis Community College at Meramec before transferring to Webster University to study journalism. She dropped out after meeting her husband, Chris, with whom she [3 ] homeschools two children. [3 ]
The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative, which broadcasts weekdays from noon to 3:00 PM Central time on KFTK in St. Louis and WIBC in Indianapolis. In October 2010, Loesch also became editor-in-chief of [4 ] Big Journalism, one of the conservative group blogs created by Andrew Breitbart. In February 2011, [5 ] CNN hired Loesch, Will Cain, and Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher, as political analysts in preparation for its 2012 election coverage. Loesch was specifically hired to represent the Tea Party point of view. [6 ]
She co-founded the St. Louis Tea Party in 2009 along with its board president, Bill Hennessy.
In December 2011, Loesch left the organization when she and Hennessy disagreed on which [7 ] Republican to support in Missouri's 2nd congressional district, after Loesch backed the establishment candidate, U.S. Representative Ann Wagner, and Hennessy favored Missouri Republican Party Chairman Ed Martin. Loesch later helped form the Gateway Grassroots Initiative. [7 ]
Loesch was the recipient of
Accuracy In Media's Grassroots Journalism award and the inaugural Breitbart Spirit Award. She also guest hosts for other radio talent such as Glenn Beck and Michael Savage. Loesch was added to Talkers Magazine 's top 100 "heavy hitters" in 2012.
On January 12, 2012, after the release of a
video of U.S. Marines urinating on Taliban fighters garnered national attention, Loesch celebrated the actions on her radio show saying that she would "drop trou and do it too" Former Marine [8 ] Goldie Taylor stated that Loesch's remarks were "disgusting". The next day, Loesch stated she was "defending [the Marines] from overly-dramatic hysteria". [9 ] [10 ]
rape and pregnancy controversies in August 2012, after former Rep. Todd Akin made his "legitimate rape" remarks, Loesch commented on Twitter "Seems to me like Akin was trying to fit medical explanation into a soundbite. Not the best statement, but some are stretching it majorly." [11 ] [12 ]
In December 2012, Loesch sued the
parent company of her former employer Breitbart.com. Loesch stated 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 "increasingly hostile" working environment. [13 ]
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. [14 ] [15 ]
On January 10, 2014, Loesch debuted her new TV Show,
Dana, on Glenn Beck's TheBlaze TV.
