Fox News host Greta Van Susteren replaced newsman Brian Williams on the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation’s board of directors, according to a report in TVNewser on Monday.

Williams resigned from the post in February after he admitted to embellishing a story about an experience reporting from Iraq. NBC News suspended him as its “Nightly News” anchor for six months, and eventually replaced him permanently with anchor Lester Holt.

“I’m honored and humbled to join the Medal of Honor Foundation Board and serve these very special men in their very worthy cause,” Van Susteren said, according to the report. “They represent and speak for all the men and women who serve this great nation, and all the young Americans who will lead us into the future. I’ll do everything I can to help perpetuate their legacy.”

Williams is expected to return to TV on Tuesday to cover the pope for MSNBC.
