Michael Savage is a multimedia icon in the conservative movement, heard by 10 million listeners a week on "The Michael Savage Show," and syndicated across the U.S. in over 300 markets. He is also the author of 25 books, including four New York Times bestsellers. In 2007, his media presence and profile earned him the coveted "Freedom of Speech Award" from Talkers Magazine.
His passion to unearth the truth about liberalism, borders, language and culture, and his unparalleled stand for America's families, has made him the most important figure in the fight for free speech and ideals in America today.
He is the only member of the U.S. media ever blacklisted and banned from a Western nation. His ban from visiting Britain in June 2009 has made him the "poster child" for free speech – not only for Americans concerned about the cultural shift towards totalitarianism and their rights to freedom of expression, but for people around the globe. In mid-2009, this worldwide media attention concerning the ban resulted in a New Yorker magazine profile of him.
Dr. Savage holds a master's degree in medical botany and a second in medical anthropology. Additionally, he earned his PhD. from the University of California at Berkeley in epidemiology and nutrition sciences. He is an ardent conservationist, is dedicated to his family and is a proud patriot of his country.
