Greta Van Susteren, former Fox News host, is joining MSNBC to host “For the Record with Greta” at 6 PM, the network announced.
“Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” said MSNBC President Phil Griffin. “Her broad range of experience and sharp news judgment will be of great value to MSNBC as we build on our momentum going into a new year and a new administration.”
Back in September, Van Susteren left Fox News shortly after boss Roger Ailes departed, invoking a clause in her contract allowing her to do so if Ailes left. She had said at that time that Fox “has not felt like home for some time.”
“I’m thrilled to start my next chapter at MSNBC,” Van Susteren said in the MSNBC statement. “The network is the right destination for the smart news and analysis I hope to deliver every day, and I look forward to joining the talented journalists and analysts I respect there.”
According to the network, Van Susteren’s new show will “provide news coverage and analysis of the day’s top headlines spanning politics and beyond.”
