Former Fox Anchor Greta Van Susteren Joining MSNBC
Former Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren will join MSNBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter on Jan. 5.
Van Susteren departed Fox about five months ago and will now host “For the Record With Greta,” a weekday show airing at the 6 p.m. timeslot on MSNBC.
“Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” said MSNBC head Phil Griffin, according to the report. “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.”
Van Susteren also acknowledged her move to MSNBC in several tweets on Thursday. “It is strange that way we all seem to keep working w/ each other at different networks,” she tweeted. “Very excited about #MSNBC.”

“I’m thrilled to start my next chapter at MSNBC,” Van Susteren said in a 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.”
Earlier this week, it was announced that Fox News’ Megyn Kelly would join NBC News, getting a weeknight show and a Sunday night show. In replacing her, Fox announced that Tucker Carlson would get the 9 p.m. time slot.
Details of Van Susteren’s contract or when she’ll start are unclear. Kelly confirmed she would leave Fox News on Friday.
