Fox News reporter Benjamin Hall is still recovering after being injured in an attack while covering the Russian invasion of Ukraine. But, according to a new update from Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott, he’s making “remarkable” progress.
Scott, along with Fox News president and editor Jay Wallace, recently visited Hall — who is rehabilitating at Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas — to commemorate his upcoming 40th birthday and wish him well. After the visit, Scott shared an update with staff in an internal memo.
“He looks amazing considering all he’s been through, and he’s truly an inspiration,” Scott wrote. “He still has a long way to go to recover, but his progress over the past four months has been nothing short of remarkable.”
“Ben asked us to let the entire team at FOX News Media know that he is doing well, that he misses his FOX family and most of all, he wanted to express how grateful he is for everyone who reached out and for the continued support over the past few months,” Scott continued.
While still recovering, Scott wrote that Hall “can’t wait to get home to be with his wife, kids and chocolate Labrador retriever in the near future.”
“He is also looking forward to returning to his FOX family and the work he loves. We are also excited about this day,” she said.
Hall, along with Fox warzone photojournalist Pierre Zakrzewski, 55, and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kuvshinova, 24, were just outside Kyiv on March 14 when the vehicle they were traveling in was hit by incoming fire. Zakrzewski and Kuvishinova were both killed in this attack and Hall, who barely survived, was evacuated from Kyiv soon after. He was eventually transferred to a Texas hospital. Since March 25, he has been in a Texas hospital recovering from several major surgeries.
The internal memo with updates on Hall’s recovery was the first shared with people.
