Michael Reagan          

Eldest Son of President Ronald Reagan, Bestselling Author and Radio Talk Show Host

Michael Reagan is the eldest son of former President Ronald Reagan and one of the most dynamic and sought after public speakers in the public arena today. His commitments to public service and the conservative vision his father championed are second to none, making him the natural heir to the Reagan conservative legacy.

Michael spent nearly two decades as a conservative radio talk show host, heard across the country daily on a show syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks. He left this position to travel the country in order to champion President Reagan's values and principals in the public policy forum and through candidates who embody his father's legacy.

In his work to further the inspirational legacy of his father, Michael also serves as chairman and president of The Reagan Legacy Foundation, which seeks to advance the causes President Reagan held dear and to memorialize the accomplishments of his presidency. Among the charitable activities the Foundation supports are: offering scholarships for the sailors, marines and airmen serving aboard aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and their family members; supporting programs for children in need of adoption and those in the foster care system; educating Americans about Alzheimer's disease and searching for a cure.

Michael has also appeared for years on network television as a commentator and guest on the Today Show, Good Morning America, and Nightline, and has been a frequent Fox News Contributor.

On the philanthropic side, Michael is actively involved in charities and public service entities across the United States, including: The John Douglas French Alzheimer's Foundation (Current Chair), The Young Americas Foundation, The Santa Barbara Navy League/USS Ronald Reagan Crew Enhancement Program, The Arrow Project for Neglected and Abused Children, and the Olive View-UCLA Medical Center Foundations Advisory board. In addition, Michael was honored in 2006 as an electee to the board of trustees of Eureka College, President Reagans Alma Mater.

Michael has always been a pioneer; he is a man who has done everything from debating Mikhail Gorbachev to setting world records in powerboat racing. His racing raised more than $1.5 million for charities like the United States Olympic Team, Cystic Fibrosis, the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and the Statue of Liberty Restoration Fund, as a result of which he was given the Victory Award for outstanding sports and humanitarian achievement.

Besides his weekly column, read nationwide in more than 300 newspapers, Mike has authored many successful books including his best-selling autobiography, On the Outside Looking In; The Common Sense of An Uncommon Man: The Wit, Wisdom and Eternal Optimism of Ronald Reagan; Twice Adopted; and Mikes latest, The New Reagan Revolution: How Ronald Reagan's Principles Can Restore America's Greatness.

Mike and his wife, Colleen, have two children and reside in Toluca Lake, California.
