Shock and giggles greeted news Thursday that ex-Fox News host Greta Van Susteren has a new gig at polar-opposite MSNBC.
Mediaite wasn’t surprised, however.
“It has been rumored for a while that ex-Fox News host Greta Van Susteren would be heading to MSNBC. She even hinted at an upcoming announcement on Twitter recently. Well, it appears that the move is now official. MSNBC confirmed today that they had brought on Greta to host her own program,” the media watcher said.
“Van Susteren will host ‘For the Record with Greta,’ which will air weeknights from 6-7 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.”
Mediate said the 62-year-old former lawyer’s show will “provide news coverage and analysis of the day’s top headlines spanning politics and beyond…. Van Susteren left Fox News last year shortly after the departure of chief Roger Ailes.”
