Newsmax announced today that veteran news anchor Greta Van Susteren will join the network as the host of her own nightly show.
“The Record with Greta Van Susteren” will be based in Washington, D.C., and will premiere on Tuesday, June 14.
“With all that is going on in the world, I am getting back to my roots — a daily live news show with real reporting from the places where things are happening,” Van Susteren said.
“I have been friends with Chris Ruddy for years, and he is giving me this great opportunity to return, giving me the complete freedom to cover the news that really matters to people.
“I have been impressed by Newsmax’s team and their success, and would love to be part of a news network that is really growing.”
Thanks – I am happy to return to live news ( but I have enjoyed the last five years – met many great colleagues) https://t.co/OTHL6X5LAo

Newsmax Media CEO Chris Ruddy said:
“No one in journalism better exemplifies Newsmax’s mission to provide fact-based news and fact-based opinion than Greta Van Susteren.
“We are so pleased and honored to have Greta lead our nightly news lineup of programs.”
Van Susteren got her big break as a legal analyst during the O.J. Simpson murder trial.
She turned those appearances into a long career with multiple networks.
The veteran host has also worked at CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC.
She has been hosting a Sunday morning show with the Gray television network and serving as a contributor to Voice of America.
