Stan Ellsworth is the creator, producer, and Harley-riding host of American Ride, the Emmy award winning American history program entering its 11th season and available in over 50,000,000 American homes across the country on BYUtv.
Stan is a fascinating personality who literally has American history running in his veins. With a family history that includes Gen. George Washington and other historic luminaries such as Revolutionary War patriots Ethan Allen, Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee, Gen. Daniel Morgan, General Robert E. Lee, American folk heroes Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, and the notorious Frank and Jesse James, his commentaries and observations really hit home with audiences around the nation.
Ellsworth continues his mission to “wake up the nation” with a true recounting of our history and rich American heritage through his television show as well as by speaking to large numbers of America’s sons and daughters all across the country because Stan believes that the Light of Liberty needs to be protected and preserved by one generation for the next. It’s easy to see why American Ride is also used as a curriculum aide in home school, junior high, and high school classes nationwide.
To be sure, Stan takes a stand on American exceptionalism, and he is eager to spread the word about America’s greatness to radio audiences around the nation. While his easy and enjoyable format is poignant and prolific, he enjoys the controversy that comes with his version of America’s next great awakening.
