The rumors turned out to be true: Greta Van Susteren is joining MSNBC and will host a new show called For the Record with Greta, a name that it is similar to her former Fox News Channel program but for one preposition; her FNC show, which ended when she left the network in September, was called On the Record.
The show will be be a mix of news and analysis focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on political breaking news. It will air at 6 p.m. ET in the space opened up by the cancellation of With All Due Respect, the Bloomberg TV show that MSNBC rebroadcast.
“Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” said MSNBC president Phil Griffin 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.”
Prior to joining Fox News, Van Susteren had been at CNN. The move to MSNBC will give her experience at all three cable news networks.
For the Record, which will be based out of Washington, premieres Jan. 9.
