Greta Van Susteren left Fox News in November, and now it appears she’s found a new home at MSNBC.
The network said in a statement Thursday:
Van Susteren will host “For the Record with Greta,” which will air weeknights from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. ET. The program will debut on Monday, January 9, based in Washington, D.C. It replaces the timeslot of Bloomberg’s political television show “With All Due Respect,” which ended in early December.
“For the Record,” an obvious homage to the Fox show she hosted for 14 years, “On the Record,” will be rooted in news analysis and opinion — Van Susteren’s specialty.
Van Susteren said in a statement about the move:
“I’m thrilled to start my next chapter at MSNBC. 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 journalist left Fox News abruptly last November, amid a slew of sexual assault allegations against former Fox News head Roger Ailes. Initially Van Susteren defended her old boss, but after several other women came forward, including Megyn Kelly, she changed her tune, saying she was “filled with regret for stubbornly discounting their various allegations.”
Van Susteren is the second Fox News face to be poached by NBC. Earlier this week, Megyn Kelly announced she would be leaving her Fox News show to start three-pronged role at NBC News — part daily daytime show host, part one-a-week weekend program host, and part special political and breaking coverage anchor.
