Ingraham holds degrees from Dartmouth College and the University of Virginia. She worked as a speechwriter in the Reagan Administration, and has served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In the late '90s she became a CBS commentator, and hosted the program "Watch It!" on MSNBC. She launched "The Laura Ingraham Show" in 2001, which is heard on 290 stations nationwide, and has written the books The Hillary Trap and Shut Up & Sing.
According to Talkers magazine's Talk Radio Research Project in 2004, Ingraham was ranked in the top 10 in total audience among nationally heard talk show hosts, trailing only Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Howard Stern, Michael Savage and Laura Schlessinger. This ascent was at least partially attributed to her producer Lee Habeeb's adoption of the talk radio techniques of Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern, mixing hard core politics with pop culture. She has once appeared on the cover of The New York Times Magazine in a leopard-skin miniskirt for an article about rising young conservatives in 1995.
