Greta Van Susteren abruptly leaves Fox News

Brit Hume to take over 7 p.m. timeslot

Longtime Fox News host Greta Van Susteren is leaving the channel after 14 years, Fox News announced on Tuesday.

Senior political analyst Brit Hume will take over for Van Susteren's 7 p.m. show "On the Record" starting immediately, and running through the election. It isn't clear what will happen to the timeslot after the election.

“We are grateful for Greta's many contributions over the years and wish her continued success," Fox co-presidents Jack Abernathy and Bill Shine said in a statement.

No reasons were given in the Fox News announcement for Van Susteren's departure, and she did not immediately respond to a direct message seeking comment.

Can't believe Roger never hit on her and she is insulted.

I'm sorry to see her leave. She was one I really respected and liked.

Maybe she thought she had something special with Ailes until all the dirt came out about the other women.

She was one of the very few you could count on to be fair and honest. A real lady and a class act. I will truly miss her.

She is a lawyer/former prosecutor and has a good mind, but she was so hard to understand because she slurred her words so much.

Brit Hume is a very bright man and I thought he would make a good candidate for president.

But since he isn't running, he might as well take this gig. :-)

I will sure watch the program..

What was FOX forcing her to do against her values that she was forced to quit without saying goodbye to her friends and viewers? I wonder if Murdoch was forcing her out.
