Newsmax Media Inc. is now a household brand on major cable news networks, as well as a fixture in national politics at every press conference, event, and campaign rally. Since its inception in 1998, the firm has grown to become one of the largest news content distribution systems in the United States, with a daily audience of at least 70 million people. All of this has been accomplished under the direction of Newsmax's CEO, Chris Ruddy, who has been in charge of the company's online content and news delivery for for two decades.
When it came to Ruddy's leadership, the origin of the Newsmax debut was a long time coming.
Chris Ruddy earned a BA in history from the famous St. John's University, where he developed a tremendous breadth of knowledge. Ruddy went on to get a master's degree in public policy at the London School of Economics.
Ruddy earned a Hebrew degree from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem at the same time. Chris Ruddy sharpened his journalistic teeth in the conventional large media organizations before jumping into the digital-cable world of Newsmax, thanks to his background and education, which prepared him for a launch into US national politics through the media. Ruddy not only worked as a reporter for the New York Post and the Pittsburg Tribune Review for many years, but he also pursued his interest in history, which led to a Stanford University scholarship.
