Laura Ingraham will return to her Fox News show "The Ingraham Angle" Monday night, having survived the quickly-announced vacation she took after losing a large number of advertisers.

Ingraham had joined number of right-wing pundits and gun-rights supporters in criticizing the Marjory Stoneman Douglas students for their gun control activism, saying at a minimum that they were too young to have an informed opinion on the issue.

On 9 April 2018, a spokesperson for the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns the station, told the Post: "We have accepted Mr. Allman's resignation, and his show has been canceled".

As reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, several companies have withdrawn advertising from KFTK, the conservative talk radio station where Allman hosts a morning show every weekday, citing his tweet as the cause.

"David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it", Ingraham tweeted in late March.

He often trumpets pro-Trump and conservative lines, assailing media coverage of the president, lambasting liberals and Democrats for seeming "to be all about one thing, shutting down people they disagree with".

The controversy surrounding Allman's tweet can be paralleled with the recent ad boycott against Laura Ingraham involving her comments on Hogg. As the week went by, more and more advertisers either quietly or very publicly pulled their dollars from her show.

Newman supports stronger gun laws and on Twitter has urged companies to pull advertising from Allman's show. The context of the tweet wasn't clear.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg speaks during the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C. on March 24. Sinclair recently came under fire for forcing its news anchors to read promos about "one-sided news stories plaguing our country".

According to his bio in BizJournal.com, Allman's morning show was quite popular as it was the top-rated show during the morning drive time (6:00 a.m.to 10:00 a.m. local time).

The majority of his advertisers have stuck with Allman, reports Mediaite, and the radio host retweeted many of his supporters' messages over the weekend, thought those can't be seen since he set his Twitter account to private.
