Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren will join MSNBC and host an evening news show called “For the Record with Greta” in the 6 p.m. ET timeslot, the network announced Thursday.
Van Susteren has been mum about her next move since leaving Fox News in September after 14 years with the network. She did not give any concrete reasoning for her departure, other that saying that Fox has not “felt like home for some time.” She left shortly after Fox News boss Roger Ailes departed amid allegations of sexual harassment, due to a clause in her contract that allowed her to do so if Ailes left.
Van Susteren’s new MSNBC show will “provide news coverage and analysis of the day’s top headlines spanning politics and beyond,” according to the network’s release.
“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.”
The news comes just one day after Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly announced she was leaving Fox News for NBC News after a 12-year career. Kelly’s deal with NBC included a daytime program, a Sunday evening news show and regular participation in major event and political coverage.
