Greta Van Susteren ‘out at MSNBC’ after 6 months
After a six-month gig on MSNBC, veteran political host Greta Van Susteren announced her departure from the cable news network with a single, five-word tweet.
“I am out at MSNBC,” Ms. Susteren wrote Thursday afternoon.
Only minutes later, MSNBC president Phil Griffin confirmed her departure, announcing that Ari Melber, the network’s legal correspondent, would take over the helm of “On the Record,” which airs daily at 6 p.m.
“Greta is a well-regarded television veteran and one of only a few broadcasters who can say they’ve hosted shows at all three major cable news networks. We are grateful to her and wish her the best,” Mr. Griffin noted in an advisory.
Ms. Van Susteren spent 14 years at Fox News hosting a successful prime-time show until her resignation in September.
Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren tweeted, “I am out at MSNBC,” on Thursday. The network confirmed it, and said she will be replaced.
