Wayne E. Dupree was recently named Pioneer in New Media for 2018 and tapped as a member of Newsmax’s top 50 Influential Black Republicans for 2017. In 2016, he was named as a board member of the National Diversity Coalition for Donald Trump and he was awarded the 2015 American Conservative Union Blogger of the Year.
Dupree’s “New Media” growth has exploded in just seven years of hard work directed by the tradition of Andrew Breitbart, who Wayne was privileged to connect with a few weeks before Breitbart's untimely death in 2012. In blazing his trail, Wayne proudly carries the Breitbart standard of “Walking Toward the Fire” by being a strong conservative voice, adding his commentary to current events and challenging the Obama administration’s policies.
Wayne is a leading national conservative voice. He is also a member of Project 21, a black leadership network, is a regular contributor to The Political Insider, Headline Politics, Townhall.com, NewsmaxTV and the One America News Network. He has been personally sought out by FoxNews Sean Hannity Black Conservative Special and Fox & Friends, as well as appearing on two Glenn Beck Specials, CNN and MSNBC. Dupree has also been a radio guest on nationally syndicated shows hosted by Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Steve Malzberg. His writing has also been published by the Washington Times at the request of FoxNews Contributor Monica Crowley. He currently has a show on America’s Voice News where he broadcasts Mon-Thur each week.
But Wayne’s true home is social media. Every day, Wayne directly interacts with over 330K followers on Twitter and with over 420K Facebook friends, that has reached an incredible 1.5 Million conservatives daily. His website, https://waynedupree.com reaches nearly 1,000,000 page views per month. Wayne’s internet radio show, “The Wayne Dupree Show,” hosts a veritable “Who’s Who” of conservative politics, including President Donald Trump, Senators Ted Cruz, Mark Meadows, Louie Gohmert, Jim Jordan, Dr. Ben Carson, Col. Allen West, Michelle Malkin, Monica Crowley, Dinesh D’Souza, and a host of other newsmakers.
In his second year of being a conservative activist, Wayne earned the 2014 “Best in Show: Podcast” award at the National Bloggers Club “BlogBash” event held during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
Wayne isn’t just a keyboard activist – he walks the walk, too. A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Wayne is a frequent speaker at Tea Party rallies across America. In 2014, he participated in a Florida-to-Minnesota bus tour hosted by Tea Party Express that staged rallies in over a dozen cities in between. Wayne is also an invited speaker at Americans For Prosperity (AFP) and other rallies, and is part of the leader of the first media team ever invited to cover the Act for America Conference in 2014.
