Dana Loesch‘s original brand of young, punk-rock, conservative irreverence has found a fast-growing audience in multiple mediums. She was named to Talkers Magazine‘s top 100 “heavy hitters” in 2012. A former award-winning newspaper columnist (and notable blogger since 2001), Dana was ranked as one of the top 16 most powerful mothers online by Neilsen. The 2012 winner of Accuracy In Media’s Grassroots Journalism award and the inaugural Breitbart Spirit Award, Dana was one of the original Breitbart editors selected by her late friend and mentor, Andrew Breitbart, to head what was BigJournalism.com and helped break the Anthony Weiner scandal before departing in 2012.
Dana appears regularly on Fox News, ABC, CNN, and HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher, and has appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” among other programs. She is the primary fill-in for Glenn Beck’s television program on The Blaze network and was the first and only female guest host for Michael Savage’s radio show.
Dana co-founded the tea party movement in St. Louis and speaks regularly on the subject of new media and grassroots. She and her family live in St. Louis.
