Laura Ingraham was born on June 19, 1963 in Glastonbury, Connecticut. She is the daughter of James Frederick Ingraham III and Anne Caroline Kozak. She has one sibling, Curtis.
Laura attended Glastonbury High School and graduated in 1981. She would enroll in Dartmouth College and earn a B.A. in 1985. A year later, Laura studied at the University of Virginia School of Law and received a Juris Doctorate.
She has never been married, but she has been in a couple of relationships, including with commentator Keith Olbermann, Senator Robert Torricelli, and commentator Dinseh D’Souza. She was engaged to wealthy businessman James V. Reyes, but the engagement was canceled due to her breast cancer diagnosis in 2005. She is the single parent of three adopted children: Michael Dmitri, Nikolai Peter, and Maria Caroline.
Laura has been a prolific conservative media personality, starting from her days as an editor of an unofficial conservative publication at Dartmouth College. Towards the end of President Ronald Reagan’s administration, she served as a speechwriter for the Domestic Policy Adviser and was the editor of magazine The Prospect.
In 1991, Laura was hired as a law clerk for Judge Ralph K. Winter of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York as well as for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. She went into private practice soon after, working for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Heagher & Flom as an attorney.
By the 2000s, Laura became a permanent fixture on television and radio. She became one of the biggest radio stars in the country, typically ranking in the top five nationwide. When it came to television, she first served as CBS commentator, followed by a hosting gig on MSNBC named “Watch It.” In October 2017, the Fox News Channel gave Laura an hour-long primetime show called “The Ingraham Angle.”
She has ventured into business as well, co-founding Ingraham Media Group, which owns several web properties, including LifeZette, FaithZette, PopZette, PoliZette, and HealthZette.
Laura has published several books, including “Shut Up & Sing,” “The Obama Diaries,” “Billionaire at the Barricades,” and “Busting the Barricades.”
Laura has gotten into some controversies in 2018. In February 2018, she was called a racist for telling LeBron James and Kevin Durant to just “shut up and dribble,” a common phrase she has used dating back to 2003. A month later, she boycotted by 27 sponsors for poking fun at David Hogg on Twitter. She took a brief hiatus, but upon her return, her Fox program experienced a 25 percent jump in total viewers and a 36 percent increase in the important 25-34 age group demographic.
We estimate that Laura Ingraham’s net worth is $45 million (2018).
So how much is $45 million really?
$45 million can be seed money to help launch your own television news network. $45 million can also pay for the previous salary of Bill O’Reilly.
