We recently told you about a rumor circulating in the media world, that former FOX News host Greta Van Susteren may take a position at MSNBC. That rumor has now been confirmed.
Greta’s show at FOX was called “On the Record” but her new show will be called “For the Record.”
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Greta Van Susteren Joins MSNBC
This new year is already proving to be quite the tumultuous one for cable news time slots. Greta Van Susteren has landed at MSNBC five months after departing Fox News Channel.
The pundit will host For the Record With Greta, a new weekday show airing during the 6 p.m. time slot. She will anchor the hour from Washington, D.C., replacing Bloomberg political show With All Due Respect, in an effort to bridge the gap between daytime and primetime.
“Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” MSNBC topper Phil Griffin said Thursday 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.”…
“I’m thrilled to start my next chapter at MSNBC,” said Van Susteren. “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.”
Congratulations to Greta!
She’ll probably have the most watched show on the network!
