Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's executive vice president and CEO, has named the 38-year-old Loesch to be special assistant to his office for public communication.

Loesch is a frequent guest on Fox News, CNN and ABC and hosts "The Dana Show" on Glenn Beck's TheBlazeTV.

“During the past year Dana has proven herself to be a powerful voice for the Second Amendment rights of all Americans,” LaPierre said. “It is clear that Dana has the communication skills, experience, and natural ability to serve our organization well as one its very public faces in the news media.”

In 2016, Loesch was chosen to serve as the NRA’s special adviser on women’s policy issues. She also has acted as a pundit on NRA TV and has recorded public service announcements for the 146-year-old organization that touts more than 5 million members.

“I’ve been impressed with Dana’s command of the issues facing the NRA, as well as her ability to communicate our positions and connect with women, and men, on those issues,” LaPierre said.

Loesch is also the author of the 2014 bestseller "Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America."
