Wynton Hall is a Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Only 30, Hall is a bestselling author and has been labeled a “rising star” in the field of presidential communication. His work has been published in the New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Times, International Herald Tribune, Toronto Globe and Mail, National Review Online, NewsMax Magazine, Presidential Studies Quarterly, Western Journal of Communication, Business Research Yearbook, RealClearPolitics, Leadership Excellence Magazine, and The Politico.

Hall has also appeared on numerous television and nationally syndicated radio programs, including Bill O'Reilly's "The Radio Factor" and "The Michael Reagan Show."
Hall and President Ronald Reagan's Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger are the authors of the new book "Home of the Brave: Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror" (Forge/St. Martin's Press, 2006). The book chronicles the jaw-dropping valor of 19 of the most highly decorated soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines fighting in the War on Terror. Sean Hannity called it "One of the most important books yet written about the War on Terror."
Hall is co-author, along with President Ronald Reagan’s chief political strategist and pollster, Dick Wirthlin, of "The Greatest Communicator: What Ronald Reagan Taught Me about Politics, Leadership, and Life" (Wiley/Trade Division, 2004). The first day of its release, "The Greatest Communicator" hit Amazon.com's Best-Seller List.
Hall's third book, "Landmark Speeches on the American Conservative Movement, 1945-2005" (Texas A&M University Press, 2007) will be co-edited with Peter Schweizer.
Wiley signed Wynton Hall for his fourth book, "The Right Words: Great Republican Speeches that Shaped History" (2007).
He is also a co-editor of the recently completed book "Presidential Rhetoric: An Annotated Bibliography from TR through George W. Bush" (Texas A&M University Press, 2007). This volume represents the largest and most exhaustive reference resource of its kind.
In addition to writing books, Hall serves as a communication consultant and speechwriter. His past clients include top leaders from myriad fields, such as: political candidates, college presidents, US senators, state agencies, nationally known lawyers, TV news celebrities, and companies like Harris Interactive, Wirthlin Worldwide, and UBS Paine Webber.
He was the recipient of the Texas A&M University Distinguished Research Award. In September 2003, Hall was invited to serve as a member of the eight-person National Task Force on the Presidency and Public Opinion, which is comprised of some of the nation's top presidential scholars.
Hall was previously an intern for United States Senator Connie Mack and also worked in the Florida State Senate.
