Greta Van Susteren Exits MSNBC

Her Show, 'On the Record,' Debuted on January 9

Greta Van Susteren has left her post as host of “On the Record” at MSNBC less than six months after debuting. The program was the least-watched show on MSNBC between 5 p.m. and midnight both Monday and Tuesday of this week. In a memo to staffers, MSNBC President Phil Griffin said, “MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren have decided to part ways. 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.”

Griffin also announced that Ari Melber, MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, will take over the 6 p.m. hour that had been Van Susteren’s.

Van Susteren came to MSNBC after her 14-year run at Fox News abruptly ended last September.
