Greta Van Susteren’s announcement that she and MSNBC were parting ways after a six-month stint as host of “For the Record With Greta” was received with disappointment from her colleagues and fans alike, many whom asked what was the next stop on her career path.
Back to Fox News, where she hosted “On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren” for 15 years? Not likely. As she told her Twitter followers on Friday, “I had a clause in my contract that permitted me to [walk away] within a certain time frame and the end time had approached.” She added, “It is really odd for me to look back to exactly one year ago and how different our lives at Fox were from right now.”
Then maybe a return to CNN, where she was a legal analyst co-hosting “Burden of Proof” alongside Roger Cossack? Nope. “I just don’t see that happening…I don’t see them interested in me or me interested in them,” she said.
Van Susteren isn’t looking back but instead forward, calling herself “just an average Jane anchor” looking for facts wherever they may be.
