Wayne Allyn Root will join the Las Vegas Review-Journal as a columnist, topping the Nevada local section every Wednesday and Sunday beginning September 7, 2016. Announcement was made by Keith Moyer, Editor-In-Chief and Senior Vice President/Content for Nevada’s largest daily newspaper.
Wayne Allyn Root is a self-proclaimed S.O.B. (son of a butcher), small businessman, homeschool dad, national media personality, international business speaker, television producer (“King of Vegas,” “Ghost Adventures,” and “Las Vegas Law”), and middle class warrior.
While host of the Las Vegas-based 790 Talk Now radio program “WAR Now: The Wayne Allyn Root Show,” he continues as political commentator on hundreds of conservative talk radio stations airing nationally. One of the most popular syndicated columnists in the conservative world, Root is also the author of such bestsellers as “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide,” “The Murder of the Middle Class,” “Millionaire Republican,” and “The Power of Relentless.” Root’s latest book, “Angry White Male,” will debut August 23.
“What an honor to be joining the Las Vegas Review-Journal as a columnist. Now I get to make my mark on the greatest city on earth,” notes Root. “My columns will be for blue collar butchers, bakers, cops, small business owners and anyone who believes in the American Dream and the things that made America great, such as God, guns, family, American exceptionalism, capitalism, the Constitution, police, military and the great American middle class. I hope a high-profile newspaper column by a conservative and capitalist warrior whose initials spell W.A.R. helps lead the battle to make America great again.”
“We’re happy to add Wayne Allyn Root’s take on politics and life to our Nevada page each Wednesday and Sunday,” Las Vegas Review-Journal Editor-in-Chief Keith Moyer said. “Wayne’s uniquely conservative voice will add needed balance to the many other fine columns that appear in the Review-Journal.”
Branded by media across the globe as “the Capitalist Evangelist,” Root is a former Libertarian Vice-Presidential nominee who also served as Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee, before rejoining the Republican Party in 2012. A graduate of Columbia University, Class of ’83 (along with his classmate President Barack Obama), Root and his family reside in the suburbs of Las Vegas, Nevada, calling it “heaven” with its zero state income tax, zero business income tax, zero capital gains tax, zero inheritance tax, and the ninth lowest property taxes in America.
