Jon Favreau Biography

Jon Favreau is an American political commentator and the former Director of Speechwriting for President Barack Obama. He is co-founder of the liberal media company, Crooked Media and co-hosts the political podcast “Pod Save America.”

From 2009 through early 2013, Jon Favreau served as the director of speechwriting for President Barack Obama, a role he also played for the President during the 2008 presidential campaign. Favreau began writing with President Obama in 2005, when he started his first term as a U.S. Senator, and has had a hand in crafting nearly every major speech that the President delivered over the last 8 years. Favreau's passion for writing and public service first developed at the College of the Holy Cross, where he graduated with degrees in Political Science and Sociology in 2003 and received an honorary doctorate degree in 2014.

In 2016, after the November presidential election was won by Donald Trump, Favreau, Vietor and Jon Lovett founded Crooked Media. Favreau also co-hosts a political podcast “Pod Save America” with Dan Pfeiffer, Vietor and Lovett. In the wake of the new Republican healthcare bill, the AHCA, he coined the term "Wealthcare".

He currently serves on the Board of Advisors of Let America Vote, a voting rights organization founded by fellow Crooked Media host Jason Kander.

Favreau is the co-founder of Fenway Strategies, where he has consulted and written speeches for several celebrities, Fortune 500 CEOs, and nonprofit leaders. He has been featured in both TIME magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” and in GQ's “50 Most Powerful People in D.C.” Favreau is also a columnist for The Daily Beast and taught a weekly seminar as a Spring 2013 visiting fellow at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.
