Dr. Michael Savage is a multimedia icon in the conservative movement, heard by 10 million listeners a week on “The Savage Nation”. In 2019, he launched The Savage Nation Podcast with one of the most successful podcast debuts. He is also the author of more than 25 books, including nine New York Times best-sellers. In 2007, his media presence and profile earned him the coveted “Freedom of Speech Award” from Talkers Magazine.
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.
His illustrious career reached a capstone in 2016 with his induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame. In a break from tradition, listeners were called upon to vote on the nominees. Radio listeners overwhelmingly selected Savage over a number of high profile contenders. Savage was also instrumental in the populist movement that catapulted Donald Trump to the White House in the 2016 presidential election.
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
