Fact Check: Is Laura Ingraham leaving Fox News? Rumours debunked

After Tucker Carlson’s exit from Fox News Network, social media was filled with the news of Laura Ingraham leaving Fox as well. The rumor blew up after the major change of Carlson leaving the network was announced in April 2023. Soon after that, there were rumors floating that Laura Ingraham too was planning on leaving the channel. However, Fox News has denied all these rumors and said that Laura isn’t leaving the channel.

According to a Fox News spokesperson, the reports were “wildly inaccurate” and added:

“Laura Ingraham, the top-rated woman in cable news, is now and will continue to be a prominent host and integral part of the Fox News lineup.”

Thus, as per the statement released by Fox, Laura will continue hosting her 10 pm show, The Ingraham Angle which she has been hosting since 2017. Thus, the news about Laura Ingraham leaving Fox News is untrue.

As a new lineup for Fox News takes shape, key members like Laura Ingraham and Hannity have been confirmed to maintain their regular presence on the network. Joining them in the 2023 lineup are Greg Gutfeld, Bret Baier, Jesse Watters, Bill Hemmer, Dana Perino, and Harris Faulkner.
