Greta Van Susteren Will Leave Fox News Channel - 2016-09-06
Greta Van Susteren, who has anchored early evening and primetime programs for Fox News Channel since 2002, has left the cable-news outlet, a separation that one person familiar with the matter attributed to "a financial disagreement."
Brit Hume, a veteran journalist who spent more than a decade as a senior news executive in Fox News' Washington bureau, will take over her 7 p.m. slot on the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network at least through the election. He will appear this evening, the network said Tuesday.
Van Susteren could not be reached for immediate comment. Her husband, John Coale, an attorney who has worked as her agent in the past, could also not be reached for immediate comment. In an exchange with Fox News veteran Geraldo Rivera, the anchor told him, "Geraldo, I will miss you." Van Susteren last revised her contract with Fox News in May of 2013.
