Fox News reporter Benjamin Hall has been injured while on assignment in Ukraine.
Hall was working just outside the capital city of Kyiv when he was reportedly injured, according to John Roberts, co-anchor of Fox News’ “America Reports.”
“This is news that we hate to pass along to you, but it’s obviously what happens sometimes in the middle of a conflict,” Roberts said live on the air. “A Fox News journalist has been injured while newsgathering outside of Kyiv.”

The anchor went on to say there are very few details currently available but noted others on the ground in Ukraine “are working as hard as they can to try to gather more information” on the situation and Hall’s condition.
“Information changes very quickly and we are working as hard as possible to get the best information that we possibly can and get all of the details on what has happened,” he said. “The safety of our Fox team, of course, is of the utmost importance and our highest priority.”
Subsequently, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott released a statement, which Roberts read on air.
“Earlier today, our correspondent Benjamin Hall was injured while newsgathering outside of Kyiv in Ukraine,” she said. “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.”
Roberts, for his part, tweeted out his well wishes for “Benji” and urged others to pray for his recovery.
“Fox News @ Night” anchor Shannon Bream also voiced her support for Hall, tweeting she is “praying fervently” for his safety and recovery.
News of Hall’s injuries comes one day after journalists Brent Renaud and Juan Arredondo were shot by Russian forces amid skirmishes in the city of Irpin. Renaud succumbed to his injuries while Arredondo was wounded.
CBN News senior international correspondent George Thomas has been reporting from differing locations inside Ukraine since before Russia invaded the country in February.
Last week, Thomas reported from Ukrain on civilians — 3,000 of whom came from the U.S. — learning how to handle firearms and participate in combat.
Throughout his time in Ukraine, Thomas has met with countless Christians who are holding fast to their faith amid the unfolding war with Russia.
He is slated to participate in a second prayer event live from Ukraine and Poland on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET:
Please pray for Hall’s recovery and for Thomas’ continued safety as he reports on the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
