Mandeville, LA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Tom Gresham, host of Gun Talk Radio and founder of Gun Talk Media, has been appointed to the Board of Governors of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association of America’s firearm industry. NSSF’s mission is “To promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.” It also produces the SHOT Show, the massive gathering of firearms industry makers, retailers, and distributors held annually in Las Vegas.
For more than 50 years Gresham has been active in outdoor media as a book author; magazine writer, photographer and editor; television host, creator, producer, and director; and as a leader in the fight to preserve the Second Amendment.
“I couldn’t be more honored,” said Gresham. “I’ve worked with the NSSF on a number of projects over the years, and I’ve always been impressed with the hard work and the smart approaches it shows on everything from preventing children from gaining unauthorized access to firearms to helping shooters and hunters find places to enjoy their sports. NSSF has always been the voice of responsible firearms sales and use.”
“We are delighted that the NSSF has chosen to add Tom to its Board of Governors,” said Ryan Gresham, president of Gun Talk Media. “In addition to his public accomplishments, Tom also has quietly helped many people entering the outdoor media arena. He was one of the founders of the Professional Outdoor Media Association, the leading group for outdoor communicators.”
Gresham’s weekly national radio talk show, “Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk,” is carried on 250 radio stations and on many digital platforms. Through the talk show, Gresham created the “Gun Talk Truth Squad” — 335,000 volunteers who challenge the general media whenever there is a misstatement about gun owners or a slanted story.
