About The Speaker:
Michael Reagan is the eldest son of former President Ronald Reagan and one of the most DYNAMIC and sought after public speakers in the public arena today. His commitments to public service and the conservative vision his father championed are second to none, making him the natural heir to the Reagan Conservative Legacy.
Michael spent nearly two decades as a conservative radio talk show host, heard across the country daily on a show syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks. He left this position to travel the country in order to champion President Ronald Reagan’s values and principals in the public policy forum.
Michael also serves as chairman and president of The Reagan Legacy Foundation, which seeks to advance the causes President Reagan held dear and to memorialize the accomplishments of his presidency. He has also appeared for years on network television as a commentator and guest on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Nightline, and is a frequent Fox News Contributor. Michael is also involved in charities and public service, including: The John Douglas French Alzheimer’s Foundation, The Young America’s Foundation, The Arrow Project for Neglected and Abused Children, the Olive View-UCLA Medical Center Foundation’s Advisory board, as well as serving the board for My Stuffed Bags.
Michael is a man who has done everything from debating Mikhail Gorbachev to setting world records in powerboat racing. His racing raised more then $1.5 million for charities like the United States Olympic Team, Cystic Fibrosis, the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, and the Statue of Liberty Restoration Fund. Michael has authored many successful books including; On the Outside Looking In, The Common Sense of An Uncommon Man: The Wit, Wisdom, and Eternal Optimism of Ronald Reagan, Twice Adopted, and The New Reagan Revolution: How Ronald Reagan’s Principles Can Restore America’s Greatness.
