Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren is leaving the network after 14 years, according to the network.
Fox News’ senior political analyst Brit Hume will take over for Van Susteren as host of daily news show On the Record beginning tonight and through the election, according to Fox News co-presidents Jack Abernethy and Bill Shine.
Fox did not give a reason for the departure of Van Susteren, who joined Fox News from CNN in 2002.
Abernethy and Shine said of Van Susteren’s departure: “We are grateful for Greta's many contributions over the years and wish her continued success.”
Hume has served as Fox News’ senior political analyst since 2008. Prior to that Hume served as anchor of the network's Special Report series for more than a decade.
"As one of the best political analysts in the industry, Brit is the ideal choice to host a nightly political program while the most dynamic and captivating election in recent history unfolds,” Abernethy and Shine said in a statement. “Having Brit at the helm of this show will enable Fox News to continue on track to have its highest-rated year ever as the network dominates the cable news landscape."
