Donald Lambro delivers intelligent, conservative commentary in his weekly column to newspapers nationwide. One of the most frequently quoted political reporters in Washington, Lambro has interviewed most of the major political leaders of our time and has covered numerous presidential campaigns. He has written widely about the government, the economy and social issues, and won the 1995 Warren Brookes Award for Excellence in Journalism. Economic analyst and CNBC commentator Lawrence Kudlow has called Lambro "the best political economic reporter in Washington today.
Donald Lambro earned a national reputation for his investigations into federal spending programs. The author of several books on government and economics, Lambro wrote Land of Opportunity (Little Brown and Co.), an examination of economic growth and entrepreneurs in the 1980s. His FAT CITY: How Washington Wastes Your Taxes won national acclaim and the attention of President Reagan, who quoted from it during his 1980 presidential campaign and gave copies of the book to every member of his Cabinet.
Lambro hosted and co-wrote the PBS documentaries "Inside The Republican Revolution" and "Star Spangled Spenders" and produced and moderated C-SPAN's "The Washington Times Forum." His commentaries have been heard on AP Radio and NPR, among others.
A graduate of Boston University, Lambro began his career as a reporter for The Boston Herald-Traveler and United Press International. His investigative series on federal spending programs, "Watching Washington," was twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.
