Jump To Laura Ingraham's Stats
For more than a decade, Laura Ingraham has grown her conservative ideology enough to yank on America's ear - and people are paying attention. The conservative radio talk show host has amassed an attentive audience across America to become one of the most respected conservative voices. Her syndicated show, The Laura Ingraham Show, was launched in 2001 and the law school graduate clearly points out her bones of contention with the liberal or Democratic political landscape.
Beside her Dartmouth College undergraduate work and her 1991 matriculation from the University of Virginia Law school, Ingraham served as a staff member of an independent newspaper and also served as a law clerk for Clarence Thomas, one of nine U.S. Supreme Court Justices. She has authored a shelf full of best-selling books that include, The Hillary Trap, Shup Up & Sing, Power to the People, the Obama Diaries and a recently released one called Of Thee I Zing.
With litigation skills in her back pocket, Ingraham can calmly handle any adversarial discussions that come her way on the radio. Her tact on her show has made her one of Bill O'Reilly's favorite substitute hosts for his show when he takes a quick break.
In the late 1980, Ingraham also worked as a speechwriter for the Domestic Policy Advisor in the Ronald Reagan administration. Before she moved up to the Supreme Court law clerk sport, she assisted Judge Ralph K. Winter of the U.S. Appeals Court. In private practice, she worked for a large New York firm that took advantage of her criminal defense skills.
The Laura Ingraham Show is tied for fifth most listened talk show with average weekly listeners of 5.5 million. In 2008, Ingraham was rated as the sixth most popular radio show host by the Talkers Magazine. Laura is the mother of three children – one of which she adopted from Guatemala.
