The Laura Ingraham Show
The Laura Ingraham Show is a three-hour American radio show hosted by conservative commentator Laura Ingraham. Ingraham’s show has historically aired from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Eastern Time Zone (ET), adjusted seasonally for Daylight Saving Time, with delayed rebroadcast on various local terrestrial radio stations.
As of 2008 her show was one of the most popular radio shows, and Ingraham was number 20 in the Talkers Magazine 2016 Heavy Hundred list of the most important talk show hosts in America, as well as the highest-ranking female host. Her Web site features online polls, “Read It or Weep” articles of note handpicked by Laura from various Web sites and blogs, and audio clips available via podcasting.
The show covers primarily politics, pop culture, and media bias; with topics of interest including race relations, trends in schools, the Middle East and the legacy of feminism. The show features several recurring segments, each with a distinct satirical theme.
Ingraham’s show, one of many to launch in 2001 as the conservative talk radio genre expanded in popularity, was originally aired on the now-defunct Westwood One. She joined Talk Radio Network in 2004. In June 2008, Ingraham temporarily left the air due to a contract dispute. A number of hosts filled in for her, primarily Tammy Bruce and Monica Crowley; Ingraham returned at the end of the month. Ingraham left TRN in November 2012 after her contract expired. The show returned on January 3, 2013 after Ingraham took ownership of her show. In addition to politics, Ingraham discusses pop culture. The new show is distributed through Courtside Entertainment Group, a company controlled by Norman Pattiz.
