Nationally-syndicated conservative talk show host and author Tammy Bruce will be penning an exclusive weekly column for The Washington Times, the Times announced today. Ms. Bruce is self-described as a “gay, gun-owning, pro-death penalty, Independent conservative.” She plans to spark a new and lively debate on current events which, she promised, will “astound the way the establishment thinks.”

“Ms. Bruce brings a unique depth to our stable of opinion columnists. I’m certain that Tammy will live up to The Washington Times prevailing principle to challenge conventional wisdom and bring a fresh take on current events. The Washington Times is delighted to be working with her,” said John Solomon, Wash Times Editor and VP of Content and Business Development.

Ms. Bruce is a well known advocate for both free speech and Second Amendment rights. Her positions on these issues were established in part from her experience as a radio talk show host. The “Tammy Bruce Show” premiered in 1993 in LA and was nationally syndicated in 2005, reaching more than 200 affiliates. In an effort to gain more freedom over her program, Ms. Bruce took her radio show independent in 2009. It is now exclusively available online and via podcast. Tammy Radio is one of the Top 5 radio programs on the worldwide internet radio hub TalkStreamLive.
