For more than two decades, Chris Stirewalt has been a leading and trusted voice in U.S. politics. One of today’s liveliest political commentators, he is highly regarded for his candid and straightforward analysis of our current political climate — using his signature ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ approach to cover the most significant issues of the day and provide his expert outlook for the future. Stirewalt is also the bestselling author of the books Broken News: How the Media Rage Machine Divides America and How to Fight Back, a deeply researched, conversation-provoking study of today’s profit-driven news cycle and how it can be repaired, as well as Every Man a King, a dynamic account of America’s populist tradition. Today, Stirewalt is the political editor for NewsNation, America’s fastest growing cable news channel.

Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau, Stirewalt is an expert storyteller and astute speaker who keeps audiences engrossed with his trademark humor while breaking down complex political issues. He offers candid and witty insights on the current political climate and the latest happenings on Capitol Hill and in the White House, as well as a breakdown of how our political party system reached its current state of polarization and what he sees coming down the pike in Washington and across the nation. Stirewalt is a quickly rising star on news and within political circles whose speeches offer the perfect balance between meaty and hard-hitting takeaways and entertaining personal and professional anecdotes.

In addition to being the political editor as NewsNation, Stirewalt is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, focusing on American politics, voting trends, public opinion, and the media. He is also a contributing editor for The Dispatch, where he publishes a weekly column and his newsletter, Stirewalt on Politics. As co-host of the “Ink Stained Wretches” podcast, he helps listeners cut through media bias and separate fact from fiction in the news they consume.

Previously, Stirewalt served as the politics editor for Fox News Channel, where he helped coordinate political coverage across Fox. While at Fox, Stirewalt appeared in front of some of the largest audiences in cable news history, including tens of millions of viewers for debate and election night coverage. The podcast he co-hosted with Dana Perino, “I’ll Tell You What,” was so successful that it was spun off into a television show of the same name leading up to the 2016 election — an industry first. Joining FNC’s Washington bureau in 2010, Stirewalt made daily appearances on multiple Fox network programs, including America’s Newsroom, Outnumbered, Special Report with Bret Baier, and Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. He was also a part of the Fox News Decision Desk team, where he called races on election nights, and hosted the Fox Nation Halftime Report streaming show.

Prior to joining FNC, Stirewalt served as political editor for The Washington Examiner where he wrote a twice-weekly column and led political coverage for the newspaper. He also served as politics editor at the Charleston Daily Mail and West Virginia Media. Stirewalt began his career at the Wheeling Intelligencer in West Virginia.

He is a graduate of Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia.

Humble and larger than life, Stirewalt’s gregarious persona keeps audiences engaged while delivering a succinct overview of our current political climate and a deep dive into issues that matter to his audience now, including analyzing races, breaking down what’s happening on Capitol Hill, taking apart legislative battles, and offering a bird’s eye view of what’s to come in politics.
