In the wake of every case of gun violence in the United States, Dana Loesch, a conservative political analyst, usually comes out guns in defense of the use and possession of guns in the country. The writer and radio talk show host rose to fame for his appearances on television networks such as Fox News, CNN and ABC, among others. Additionally, Dana is also a gun rights activist. She is currently the spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, a position that has earned her constant death threats. Read on to learn more about his work as well as the details of his personal life.
Dana Loesch Bio
Dana Loesch was born Dana Lynn Eaton on September 28, 1978, in the city of Missouri, United States. Details about her father are not known as she was raised in an extended Southern Baptist family by her mother, Gale Eaton. Through her parents, she is said to be of Irish and Cherokee descent.
Loesch attended and graduated from Fox High School in Arnold, Missouri, before enrolling at St. Louis Community College. There she spent two years before moving on to Webster University to study journalism on a scholarship. Her stay at Webster was cut short, however, after it was discovered that she was pregnant. This prompted her to drop out of school. In order to support herself, she went ahead to find work as an investigative writer for St. Loius magazine.
After a few years, Dana Loesch launched her own website called Mamalogues. Mamalogues received a huge boost after his work began to feature in a weekly column on a regional newspaper, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch from 2006 to 2008. In 2008, after winning the award for top newspaper columnist St. Louis of the Riverfront Times, Loesch moved into radio hosting. She started the program, The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative, on KFTK-FM in St. Louis. The show later became a national syndicate on Radio America.
In 2010, the late Andrew Breitbart hired Loesch to become the editor of the conservative website, Big Journalism. Her stock continued to rise over the next few years as she was hired by CNN to work as a political analyst in the run-up to the 2012 election. Since then, the outstanding analyst has also worked for d other mainstream networks, including Fox News Network and ABC.
His net worth
Since her first appearance on television as a political analyst and commentator, Dana Loesch has become something of a star. His views and opinions are highly sorted by a good number of news networks. As a result, the curator receives good compensation for his work and his net worth is pegged at $2 million.
One of Loesch’s highest-paying jobs is as spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, which pays him an annual salary of $400,000. She also received a good salary as a writer. She has published a few books including Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America (2014) and Flyover Nation: You Can’t Rule a Country You’ve Never Been to (2016).
Family life of the political activist, husband
Dana Loesch is happily married to music producer, Chris Loesch. Chris is famous for his stylish goatee and mustache as pictured above. Much like his wife, Chris, is also a strong gun rights advocate, as well as a writer, editor and reporter at danaloeschradio.com. He is also his wife’s manager.
As mentioned above, the pair met and started dating while Loesch was still a student at Webstar University. After a few years in the relationship, Loesch found out she was pregnant, which forced her to drop out of school. At the age of 21, Dana and Chris welcomed their first child together before moving forward to exchange vows a year later in 2000. They have since grown their family to four with the addition of a son who was born at a later date.
Loesch credited her husband with making her turn conservative, as she had previously been a Democrat. As the story goes, the two clashed several times earlier in their relationship due to their differing political views. Chris was raised in a politically conservative home that preached guns and Christianity, while his wife was a staunch Democrat who even worked on Democratic Party chairman Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign. However, after the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal and the September 11 attacks, the couple were able to align their views as Loesch grew disillusioned with Democratic politics.
Today they have been a formidable force for the Tories as she has gone on to be a well-known critic of the opposition.
