(RepublicanInformer.com)- Former Fox News and MSNBC anchor Greta Van Susteren will be joining Newsmax next month.
Susteren will host the weekday show, “The Record with Greta Van Susteren” which will air at 6:00 pm starting on Tuesday, June 14.
In a statement this week, Van Susteren said she has known Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy for years and was excited to have the opportunity to return to hosting a live daily news program.
Van Susteren gained prominence during the OJ Simpson murder trial when she appeared as a legal analyst for CNN. She went on to host two different programs for CNN. In 2002, Van Susteren moved to Fox News where she hosted a primetime program. In 2017, she moved to MSNBC. Most recently, Van Susteren has been working for Gray Television, hosting a show for Voice of America.
Earlier this month, Van Susteren hosted the Newsmax debate between the Pennsylvania Republican candidates for US Senate.
During her career, she has interviewed both foreign and US presidents and vice presidents, members of Congress, Supreme Court justices, and a host of world leaders. She received the America Bar Association’s President Award for Excellence in Journalism for her coverage of the legal battle after the 2000 presidential election. She also was part of the team honored with the National Headline Award for coverage of the 9/11 terror attack.
Before her career in television news, Van Susteren was a practicing lawyer in both trial and appellate courts. She has represented clients in both criminal and civil litigation. She also served as an adjunct law professor at Georgetown.
According to Variety, which first broke the news of Van Susteren’s move to Newsmax, her deal is somewhat unique as she will personally decide what she will present during her hour-long news show. Van Susteren told Variety if people don’t like her show, “don’t you call Chris Ruddy. You call me.”
