Stan Ellsworth is the Harley Davidson-riding host of American Ride, the Emmy Award-winning American history program. He was born on the highway and raised in the Carolinas and Virginia. His family lineage includes Revolutionary War patriots Ethan Allen, Henry “Light-Horse Harry” Lee, General Daniel Morgan, American folk heroes Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett; the notorious Frank and Jesse James. Small wonder he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in history. He played and coached college football at several universities, including the University of Utah. Among his many adventures, Stan taught high school students where he brought his knowledge and unique personality to the classroom, calling upon his love of liberty to bring American history to life.

As the creator and host of American Ride, Stan has brought truth to the retelling of our country’s history; especially how Providence has played a big part in the founding and success of the American nation. American Ride preserves and preaches that message for all. The show has become a weekly highlight for nearly 11 million Americans, and many viewers in other nations via the Internet.

Stan now hosts two weekly nationwide radio programs, Character Counts with co-host Burgess Owens, and The Weekend Ride, both on the Loving Liberty network. His weekly podcast, History and the Highway, can be downloaded from West Star media. Stan is also the author of the highly successful and critically acclaimed book, Renegades and Rebels, where he recounts the true stories and heroics of the firebrands and philosophers of American independence.

For American Ride, Stan has received recognition from the American Academy of Television Arts with seven Emmys, including numerous Best Host awards. He has also been honored by the following: Sons of the American Revolution, with a Silver Medal of Citizenship; National Coalition of Motorcyclists, with the Silver Spoke Award; American Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, with the George Washington Gold Medal of Freedom; Boy Scouts of America, for Patriotism; the Honorable Gary Herbert, Governor of the State of Utah, for Service to the State; and several Sergeants Major of the United States Armed Forces, for Distinguished Service to the Nation.

Stan and his wife Stacey are the proud parents of six children and have seven grandchildren. They now make their home in the mountains of Northern Utah.
