After about 14 years with the Fox News Channel — along with stints at both CNN and MSNBC — Greta Van Susteren is ready to take a shot at local television. The AP reports that the cable news veteran signed a deal with Gray Television, which owns stations in more than 90 markets across the country.
“Van Susteren will be chief national political analyst for the Gray stations, and is developing two nationally syndicated shows for the company,” the AP reports. “She’s keeping her current job as host of a program for Voice of America that airs outside of the U.S.”
Van Susteren, who hosted FNC’s “On the Record w/Greta Van Susteren” from 2002-2016, said this week that she expects local stations to become more influential. The AP notes that Van Susteren “says candidates in the upcoming presidential election will be eager to target audiences in certain states, and Gray is well situated to provide access.”
