Education and early career

Roth earned a Ph.D. in counseling with an emphasis on alcohol and drugs from Oregon State University.[1] She was a singer-songwriter in the early to mid-1990s and host and co-producer of the PBS music show "CD Highway" from 1995 to 2000.[1]

Talk radio career

Roth began her career in talk radio as a guest on KGA-AM in Spokane, Washington in 2001.[1] She then had her own show on KPLS in Los Angeles, California.[1]

The Roth Show

The self-described "Annie Oakley of the Airwaves,"[1] has hosted the nationally syndicated The Roth Show, a conservative political commentary program, since 2003 on KQNT in Spokane.[1] The program is broadcast weekdays from the studios of flagship station KSBN in Spokane to over 50 stations nationwide.[2][3]

Traffic accident

In August 2005, Roth was critically injured in a motorcycle crash,[4][5] from which she suffered multiple broken bones and other bodily injuries, and was in a coma for two weeks. As a result of her injuries, she was unable to host her radio program for nearly a year. She returned as host of The Roth Show in June 2006.[2][6]

Political activity

Roth is a political columnist for the Internet publications News With Views, Canada Free Press and the New Media Journal.[7]

In mid-2011, Roth confirmed that she was exploring the possibility of running for President of the United States.[8] She announced her candidacy for the presidential nomination of the American Independent Party in November 2011.[9][10] She also ran for the presidential nomination of the Constitution Party,[11][12] which was won by former U.S. Congressman Virgil Goode on the first ballot at the 2012 Constitution Party National Convention.[13] Roth finished fifth in the balloting with 1.49% of the vote. Following her defeat for that party's nomination, Roth continued her candidacy for the American Independent Party nomination and contemplated the possibility of continuing her presidential bid as a "tea party" independent candidate.[14]

Roth announced that she had dropped out of the 2012 presidential race on July 25, 2012.[15]
