Benjamin Hall, a longtime war correspondent, has been hospitalized after being injured while covering the war in Ukraine. Hall has reported on conflicts from the Middle East and Africa, filing reports for the Sunday Times, The New York Times, and BBC. Hall joined Fox News in 2015.
We have a minimal level of details right now, but Ben is hospitalized, and our teams on the ground are working to gather additional information as the situation quickly unfolds,” Fox News chief executive Suzanne Scott said in an internal memo. “This is a stark reminder for all journalists who are putting their lives on the line every day to deliver the news from a war zone.”
“Please keep Ben and his family in your prayers.”
Hall and his wife Alicia Meller share three children
Benjamin Hall and Alicia Meller married in July 2015 and have since welcomed three children.
Hall’s family occasionally features on his Instagram page. Meller has taken a secretive approach, opting to keep her Instagram page private.
Hall posted a lovely tribute to his wife during their fifth anniversary. He attached the following caption alongside a photo of the couple’s wedding:
“To my beautiful, kind and wonderful wife; thank you. 5 years have passed and we’ve done more than I thought possible. An adventure, a rollercoaster, a journey, it’s been the best 5 years of my life and I can’t wait for the next 50. I love you. X.”
