Forbes has named Fox News host Greta Van Susteren one of the 100 most powerful women in the world, in a list published Monday.

Van Susteren ranked number 94. German chancellor Angela Merkel took the top spot, followed by Hillary Clinton. It’s Van Susteren’s sixth time on the list, which represents “the smartest and toughest female business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, philanthropists and CEOs making their mark in the world today.”

Among women in media, Oprah Winfrey was first, at number 21, Arianna Huffington was number 70, and Van Susteren was the only news person in the top 100. She’s been a fixture on the list every year since 2011.
