Greta Van Susteren finalizes deal to join Newsmax, pledges to stick to the facts

Van Susteren had been under contract with Gray Television but the company let her out of her contract early so she could sign with Newsmax.
Van Susteren told Variety that she wants to focus on “live news” and that she purposefully avoided signing on for a primetime hour because “that’s opinion time.”
Her new show will be called “The Record with Greta Van Susteren,” making it the third cable show she’s hosted with the word “Record” in its title. At Fox, she hosted “On the Record” and a short-lived MSNBC show was titled “For the Record”.
The 6 p.m. change will displace former White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s show and could also trigger other schedule changes, according to Variety.
Van Susteren holds the distinction of having worked at Fox, MSNBC and CNN — as well as her Gray and Voice America stints.
Newsmax viewers already had a chance to see her in action on its network when she hosted a Pennsylvania U.S. senate debate in early May 2022.
In her interview with Variety, Van Susteren drives home her point that her show on Newsmax will focus on facts and that she’s planning on “leaving the opinions to the opinion people.”
