Tammy Bruce "is an openly gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty, Independent Conservative", talk show host, according to her official biography. A lifelong Democrat, in 1992 she worked to help elect Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. Bruce has voted for and supported Republicans as well, including President Reagan, both Presidents Bush and John McCain. In 2008 Bruce decided to reject any party affiliation. Ms. Bruce is also a Fox News Channel Political Analyst, appearing several times per month.
Bruce was elected president of the Los Angeles chapter of NOW at the age of 27. The youngest ever to achieve that position, she doubled the chapter's membership from 2,000 to 4,000 within a year. In her seven years as president (1990-1996) she mobilized activists locally and nationally on a whole range of issues, including women's image in media, child care, health care, violence against women, economics, and domestic violence. Ms. Bruce also served as a member of the National NOW Board of Directors.
She hosted a daily talk-radio show on ABC's Los Angeles flagship, KABC Radio, which was syndicated nationally. More recently she has eschewed that format to concentrate on New Media, and still has her talk show, distributed via the Internet. Her show has been the #1 program on the worldwide internet radio hub TalkStreamLive for 3 consecutive years.
A native of Los Angeles, Bruce holds a bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of Southern California. She has said her interest in politics and individual liberty was sparked during her childhood in part because of the work of authors Ray Bradbury and George Orwell.
