Elisha Krauss (born February 23, 1986) is an American journalist, speaker, and radio talk host in Los Angeles, California.[1] Krauss replaced Heidi Harris as a co-host with Ben Shapiro and Brian Whitman on the Salem Radio Network/KRLA Morning Answer in April 2013. Before moving to Los Angeles in 2013, Krauss was the Senior Producer for The Sean Hannity Show, a campaign manager and media consultant. Aside from her morning talk show, Krauss is currently working as Outreach Director for Prager University (PragerU).[2]

Krauss was awarded in 2013 as a recipient of Red Alert Politics' "30 Under 30" recognition for the "finest young conservative, libertarian and Republican leaders" who, according to the publication, "were selected for their consistent involvement in the movement, their influence on other youth and their heartfelt dedication to American principles, regardless of opposition."[3] Her morning radio talk show made the 2016 Talker's "Heavy Hundred," a list of 100 of the most influential talk shows in the country.[4]

In March 2016, Krauss was listed as one of the 16 female conservative pundits who cosigned a letter[5] denouncing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski after he denied responsibility for the battery of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.

In a PragerU video that went viral in May 2016, Krauss pointed out that abortions are generally more restricted in European countries than in the U.S.[6] The four-minutes-long video was described by Life News as one taking "an unbiased approach to the abortion issue, simply comparing abortion laws in various states and nations."[7]

Krauss began and ended her video with the following quote:

Western Europeans -- as progressive and secular as they are -- have a much more conservative attitude about abortion than American Progressives do...Europeans seem to recognize that abortion is a complex moral issue; that ending a life after a certain point in a pregnancy does not reflect well on a society. Why is it so hard for American Progressives to recognize the same?[8]

In the summer of 2016, Krauss attended the Claremont Institute, where she completed the Lincoln Fellowship.[9] She participated in a town hall featuring eight other AM 870 The Answer radio talk show hosts, where the potential outcomes of the 2016 presidential elections were discussed.[10]

Krauss was homeschooled as a child in Oklahoma. She moved to New York City at the age of 18 and became an intern at WABC in New York during her freshman year at King's College, Manhattan.[11]

Personal life[edit]

Krauss' husband is Eric Krauss. They have a daughter Stevie. Krauss lives in Los Angeles, California.[12]
