Greta Van Susteren Joins MSNBC

Veteran former Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren will host a new weeknight show on MSNBC beginning Monday, the network said Thursday.

Susteren, who left Fox News in September after 14 years, will host the hour-long For The Record with Greta, which will air weeknights at 6 p.m. beginning Jan. 9, said network officials. The show, which will provide news coverage and analysis of the day’s top headlines spanning politics and beyond, replaces political television show With All Due Respect, which ended its run in December.

The Susteren announcement follows on the heels of former Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s move to NBC News this week.

“Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” said MSNBC president Phil Griffin in a statement. “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.”
