Benjamin Hall Appears On Fox & Friends To Discuss His New Memoir

By Mark Mwachiro 

Benjamin Hall, Fox News’ State Department correspondent, made his first live TV appearance this morning since suffering brutal injuries while on assignment covering the conflict in Ukraine last March, which also killed two of his colleagues, cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and consulting producer Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova.

Hall was on Fox and Friends, where he talked about his forthcoming memoir SAVED: A War Reporter’s Mission to Make it Home, which publishes on March 14, the one-year anniversary of the tragic attack.


His new book focuses on how he has survived, shares his on-the-ground war experience, and details the dramatic rescue from Ukraine and his ongoing journey to recovery.

“For me, this book is about being saved – it’s being saved by all these people. And it’s that understanding that can give you so much strength,” Hall said. “We all think about Pierre every day, and I think that’s really important for all of us to do and I think of my family every day, and I went through everything thanks to them. And you have got to remember those close things to you and keep fighting for them every day.”

The book also features nail-biting accounts from the many people across multiple countries who banded together to get him to safety, as well as offering a stunning look at the complex teamwork and heartfelt perseverance that turned his life into a mission.

During his appearance with the morning trio, Hall also offered these encouraging, “I’ve got one leg, I’ve got no feet, I see through one eye, one workable hand. I was burned all over, and I feel strong, I feel more confident than I ever have.”

He continued by saying, “I think that you learn a lot going through things like this, and I was surrounded by so many wonderful people – that’s why I’m here today, and I look forward to everything that comes ahead.”
