Nicolle Wallace is a New York Times best-selling author, political analyst, top strategist for the GOP, and the former special assistant to the President and director of communications at the White House under President George W. Bush. She is currently the host of MSNBC's Deadline: White House, a frequent contributor and guest host on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, and Morning Joe, and a contributor on The Today Show. The New York Times called her a “tough, savvy, and hard-charging conservative political operator,” and her White House colleague, presidential political advisor, Mark McKinnon, called her a “rare talent in politics.” Funny and charming, she shares fascinating stories from her time in the White House, on the campaign trail with Sarah Palin, and from the studios at MSNBC and ABC, where she was a co-host on ABC's The View. She is someone that audiences will not only recognize from TV but love on stage. Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau, Wallace is a master storyteller as she looks at the latest in politics and the media and offers audiences the rundown on today’s biggest players and issues.

From Inside The White House. Wallace served as the communications chief for George W. Bush’s White House and re-election campaign and was credited with “injecting a tremendous amount of realism” into White House deliberations.  According to the Washington Post, she served as “a voice for more openness with reporters.” The New York Times story announcing her presidential appointment carried the headline: “New Aide Aims to Defrost the Press Room,” and she was described by former colleagues as “very persuasive in the halls of the West Wing.”

Wallace also served as senior campaign advisor for the McCain-Palin Presidential campaign in 2008. She appeared frequently on network and cable news programs as the campaign’s top spokesman and defender. In the 2012 HBO film, Game Change, she was portrayed by Sarah Paulson.

Before her time in the White House, she was a press secretary for Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL). She is also a former political analyst for CBS Evening News.

Best-Selling Political Author. Wallace is the author of several New York Times best-selling contemporary political novels, which include, Madam President, Eighteen Acres, It’s Classified, and Day in the Life. The books feature women in top political roles, including President, Secretary of Defense, Chief of Staff, and White House Correspondent.

She is a California native and graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
