Greta Van Susteren Joins MSNBC

The New Show, 'For the Record,' Replaces 'With All Due Respect'

Former Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren is joining MSNBC, taking over the 6 p.m. hour with a new show called “For the Record.” The weeknight series, which debuts this Monday, will be similar in format to her Fox show.

“Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said 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.”

Van Susteren’s hiring is an attempt to draw some of her Fox fan base and a way of replacing “With All Due Respect,” the Bloomberg political talk show that MSNBC had been re-airing in 2016.
