Wayne Allyn Root (aka WAR) is not your typical CEO. First, he is a S.O.B. (son of a butcher). Wayne was a typical American blue-collar kid who started with nothing. Only in America! Second, Wayne is a former Presidential candidate and Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee. That’s certainly unique. Wayne parlayed his one-in-a-million national run for office into a conservative media career. Millions listen to Wayne on his daily nationally syndicated radio show, “Wayne Allyn Root: Raw & Unfiltered” on USA radio Network. Wayne is called “the conservative warrior” and “the capitalist evangelist” by the national media.

Wayne is a high-energy, dynamic, outspoken, fiery, combative, controversial, unapologetic, in-your-face, former New York businessman, Las Vegas gaming CEO, reality television show producer, and former Presidential candidate, turned conservative media superstar, who drives liberals into fits of rage and hate. 

Remind you of anyone? 

That could be why even the ultra-liberal, Trump-hating “Daily Beast” called Wayne, “The Donald Trump of Las Vegas.”

Wayne is best known for his relentless energy, enthusiasm and passion for America, American exceptionalism, the great American middle class, conservatism, capitalism, economic and personal freedom, small business, and the American Dream. 

President Trump says “Wayne knows how to win.” Premier Radio Network host Bill Cunningham calls Wayne “One of the great conservative thinkers in America.” Famed political strategist and presidential advisor Steve Bannon calls Wayne “the OG (original gangster) for Donald Trump and the ether of the MAGA movement.”

Wayne was named to the “Talkers Heavy Hundred” list of the top 100 radio talk show hosts in America in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Wayne joins the list with the superstars of talk radio, including the late Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Dave Ramsey, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Dan Bongino, Ben Shapiro, Clay Travis, Buck Sexton, and Charlie Kirk.

Wayne’s nationally syndicated show airs daily on USA Radio Network from 6 PM to 9 PM EST/3 PM to 6 PM PT. 

Wayne’s popular daily podcast is titled, “WAR RAW.” It is available at I-Tunes, Spotify, iHeart, Apple, Amazon, Google Play, Spreaker, or wherever you listen to podcasts. 

Wayne’s latest book, “The Great Patriot Protest & Boycott Book” is a #1 best-seller in multiple categories. It is Wayne’s 15th book. Other titles include, “TRUMP RULES,” “The Power of Relentless,” “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide” and “The Murder of the Middle Class.”

Wayne’s newspaper column is read in newspapers across the USA, syndicated by Creators Syndicate

Wayne is the former host of his own television show on Newsmax TV from 2017-2020, over 700 episodes in the prime time (8 PM EST) slot, with Bill O’Reilly as his opening guest 3x per week.

Wayne is a former lead anchorman and host of five shows at CNBC (then known as Financial News Network).

Wayne was the opening speaker at every presidential campaign event in Las Vegas for candidate Donald J. Trump. He was personally-chosen by President Donald J. Trump as opening speaker for Trump’s first Las Vegas visit as President of the United States.

Wayne speaks to conservative, church and business conferences across the USA on the topics of conservative politics, capitalism, economics, business leadership, entrepreneurship; and of course, the “TRUMP RULES” of winning at business, politics and life.

Wayne is a S.O.B. (son of a butcher). Wayne was born into a blue-collar Jewish family. Wayne took Jesus Christ as his savior 30 years ago. This unique religious and spiritual combination of Judaism and Christianity, and Wayne’s love of Israel, led Wayne to call President Trump “the greatest President in world history for the Jewish people and Israel” on national TV- leading to a liberal media meltdown across the globe. President Trump personally tweeted his thanks to Wayne multiple times. 

Wayne was honored in 2006 with a 180-pound granite star on the “Las Vegas Walk of Stars.” His star sits on Las Vegas Blvd in front of the Paris Resort & Casino. Wayne joins the legends of Vegas including Elvis, Liberace, Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Bobby Darin, Siegfried & Roy and Donny and Marie Osmond.

Wayne resides in Las Vegas, Nevada with his family.
