In a press release issued by the National Rifle Association this morning, NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre announced the appointment of Dana Loesch as special assistant to his office for public communication, with direct attributable authority on NRA matters.

“During the past year, Dana has proven herself to be a powerful voice for the Second Amendment rights of all Americans,” LaPierre said. “It is clear that Dana has the communication skills, experience and natural ability to serve our organization well as one its very public faces in the news media.”

As special assistant, Loesch—a conservative leader, online pioneer and nationally syndicated radio host—will serve as a major national spokesperson for the National Rifle Association. “During the past year Dana has proven herself to be a powerful voice for the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.” – NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre

“I’ve been impressed with Dana’s command of the issues facing the NRA, as well as her ability to communicate our positions and connect with women, and men, on those issues,” LaPierre said. 

Over the past year, Loesch served as special adviser on women’s policy issues for the NRA. She is also an NRATV Commentator and appears weekdays at 12 p.m. ET on NRATV’s “Stinchfield,” which brings daily live news and commentary on the issues of freedom that matter most. 

In addition to her new role as a major national media spokesperson for the NRA, Loesch hosts a nationally syndicated daily radio show, “The Dana Show,” as well as “Dana” on TheBlaze TV. She is a regular contributor to FOX News, ABC, CNN and other news outlets, and has also co-hosted “The View.” A former newspaper columnist and blogger, Loesch wrote 2014’s Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America, as well as Flyover Nation, her most recent best-seller in which she predicted the rise of flyover voters in the last general election.
