Greta Van Sus­teren ‘out at MSNBC’ af­ter 6 months

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Jen­nifer Harper

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.
