Josh Price, Founder and Managing Editor
Josh Price is a conservative political strategist and campaign manager. He has managed and consulted on both local and state-wide political campaigns.
In 2008, Josh used his political and managerial experience to start the conservative political blog, The Conservative Beacon. Using what his English professor described as a “knack for cutting through political nonsense,” Josh immediately differentiated The Conservative Beacon from the rest of the conservative media by offering readers insightful and concise conservative commentary. It has become the demonstrable alternative to the regurgitated GOP talking points and platitudes which dominate much of the content on many sites in the conservative blogosphere.
Josh further distinguished The Conservative Beacon from other political blogs by securing interviews with experts from topic-related fields and some of the most influential players in American politics, business, history, and entertainment, including:
- former Commander-in-Chief United States Central Command, four-star General Tommy Franks;
- United States Senator Jim DeMint;
- former head of the CIA’s Osama Bin Laden Unit, Michael Scheuer;
- terrorism expert Steve Emerson; and
- renowned historian H.W. Brands
In early 2010, Josh announced that The Conservative Beacon would continue to aggressively advocate unabashed conservatism by incorporating podcasting to its media arsenal. He reached an agreement to bring the intellectual conservatism of WorldNetDaily columnist, author, and conservative radio host Ellis Washington to The Conservative Beacon Podcast on a weekly basis.
Also in early 2010, Josh reached an agreement to bring the quick wit and unique humor of former Atlanta conservative radio host Kim “The Kimmer” Peterson to The Conservative Beacon for a weekly podcast covering political and cultural topics.
Josh has made appearances on conservative talk radio, including The Washington Report with Ellis Washington and The Savage Nation with Michael Savage. He has been quoted on Slate.com,VillageVoice.com (obviously the liberals are well aware of him), and the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
Josh is committed to aggressively advocating and advancing traditional conservatism in American politics and culture.
He is a native of Atlanta. He holds an A.A. in Business Administration from Gainesville State College and has extensive experience in political campaign management/consulting and Internet media.
