Gina Loudon grew up close to the Ozark mountains in Missouri. In school she enjoyed cheerleading and dance, especially Hula and Tahitian dancing, and she studied in Hawaii. From an early age, her father debated political issues with her and she became quite a skilled debater which no doubt led to her career as a political talk show host.
She is an avid water sports enthusiast and is quite a skilled water skier. Dr. Gina has done pitbull rescue in her spare time for years, but currently, she has a French bulldog named Gipper.
Dr. Gina studied design, communications, and psychology in college. She eventually earned two master’s degrees and a PhD. Dr. Loudon wrote her dissertation on her own theory contrasting Sternberg’s theory of love with the Maslovian hierarchical needs, and then applied it hermeneutically to existing data on relationship. Her original findings in her research are still being used today.
Her first master’s degree from St. Louis University was withheld from her for what she believed were political reasons, but it was eventually granted to her years later. This experience opened her eyes to political and social injustice.
Dr. Gina and her husband, John, have 5 children, with one by the blessing of adoption who has down syndrome.
She met her husband, Senator John Loudon, while pursuing her bachelors degree at William Woods University. They were married at his alma mater, Westminster College inthe 17th century church where Winston Churchill gave the historic Iron Curtain speech. Her husband ran for State Representative shortly after they were married and was re-elected the maximum number of terms allowed by law. John then ran for and won a senate seat and was re-elected until he was termed out of office. Dr. Gina saw the inside of politics while spending those 14 years with her husband in the Missouri state capitol.
Dr. Gina is credited as one of the 100 founding members of the tea party movement. She is the originator of the BUYcott concept, and her BUYcott of Whole Foods and Arizona have rendered some boycotts of the left largely ineffective.
Gina started doing a talk show on KJSL in St. Louis and within a year was regionally syndicated and moved to Alabama to broadcast from the company’s 100,000 watt flagship station, WYDE. She was host of the drive-time, Dr. Gina Show that was wildly successful and one of the fastest selling shows on Crawford Broadcasting’s family of stations.
Her first book was published in 2012 titled Ladies and Gentlemen: Why the Survival of our Republic Depends on the Revival of Honor. The book is a historical and psychological non-fiction book about the roles people play in society and how they can change their role.
She and her family moved to California after her husband was hired for his dream job in San Diego. She was immediately sought out by a casting director to appear on the ABC prime time reality show, Wife Swap. Although, she knew it wouldn’t be easy, and she knew she would be criticized from both sides of the aisle, she knew that if God was calling her to be a culture warrior, there was no other answer but “yes.”
“She is the conservatives’ secret weapon” says author, speaker, historian and American patriot William Federer–“a double-edged sword, adorably disarming and masterfully brilliant. Her common sense is both commanding and convincing! She is a rising star in America’s renewal.”
Sheriff Joe Arpaio called her “one fiery host.” Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America said “she doesn’t just know the issues … she lives them.” Pamela Geller says “she’s gorgeous (and) she fights the good fight!” Pat Boone called her “lovely, forceful, and accurate.” Michael Reagan said she is “a TRUE conservative.” Andrew Brietbart calls her “an official troublemaker.”
After doing her part to destroy the socialist agenda and restore the republic, she plans to sail around the world with her family.
