Greta Van Susteren exiting MSNBC after six months

June 30 (UPI) — Greta Van Susteren is exiting MSNBC after the news anchor joined the network in January after departing Fox News.

“I’m out at MSNBC,” Van Susteren wrote on Twitter Thursday to announce her exit. Her husband Jon Coale noted to CNN, “They let her go,” and added, “We’re working out contract issues now.”

“We have enjoyed having her on our air and we’re thankful to her and the show team,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in a memo.

Van Susteren hosted For the Record on MSNBC in the 6 p.m. slot which will soon be filled by the network’s chief legal correspondent and weekend host Ari Melber in July.

A 25-year cable news veteran, Van Susteren hosted On the Record with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News for 14 years and previously worked as a legal analyst and co-host at CNN.

Van Susteren has continued to answer fans questions and respond to well-wishes on Twitter regarding her departure.

“I can only say I did my best…of course not perfect..but the facts matter and so does a good hearted debate,” she wrote in response to a fan calling her a “voice of reason.”
