Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren to have dinnertime news program on MSNBC

Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren has been hired by MSNBC, The Associated Press reports. She will host a news program from Washington, D.C., weeknights at 6 p.m.

After 14 years at Fox News, Van Susteren abruptly left the network in September during the turbulence that followed former CEO Roger Ailes' departure, citing failed efforts to renegotiate her contract.

Separately, Fox News named Tucker Carlson to Megyn Kelly's 9 p.m. spot on Thursday after Kelly announced her plans to leave the network at the end of this week for NBC News.
