Fox News has been and continues to be the cable news network with the highest ratings. The hosts of its programmes are well-known and popular, and viewers follow not just the news but also the hosts’ personal travels. While on vacation skiing, one Fox News personality was in a tragic accident. Laura Ingraham is the anchor of The Ingraham Angle, but she was taking a break from work to go skiing with her family in Colorado when she had a tumble.
Ingraham recounted her injury, “Well, it started with a fun day of skiing in Colorado,” Ingraham said, noting that toward the end of the day, her teenage sons challenged her to a race down the mountain. “Of course, I took the bait,” Ingraham said.
And her impromptu race put her in the hospital with a knee injury. Ingraham, ever the media-savvy, sent an update to her admirers on the injury and rehabilitation.
Ingraham first published a screenshot on Twitter in late January:

Ingraham provided a social media update to fans after the skiing accident that hospitalized her ultimately resulted in her being off-air for a little while. “I won the race … to the Aspen Hospital ER. As I suspected, I blew out the knee. Two ligaments — the ACL and PCL — a major bummer. I was pretty heartbroken. I immediately knew it was my ACL because I had done my other knee at the same resort 20 years ago.”
“It’s going to be kind of a long road ahead, of rehab, but we’re going to get there. Thanks to everyone out there for your prayers and your concern — I’m going to be OK, I’m doing fine,” Ingraham said.
No stranger to healing, Ingraham had previously battled a private fight with breast cancer noting of that struggle, “I have a deep faith and don’t think I could have gotten through it without it. I had a lot of people praying for me. I really felt the power of that prayer. It helped me 100 percent.”
Ingraham plans to immediately return to her role as host after a brief sabbatical. According to Conservative Brief, Ingraham’s absence from Fox News is having no effect on the network’s overall ratings.
