Just before 9AM yesterday, staff at the Gray Television stations were tipped off to the company’s latest hire:
Greta Van Susteren, who has worked at MSNBC, CNN and Fox News is headed to Gray Television as the company’s Chief Political Analyst.
Van Susteren is very active on Twitter and used the social media platform to almost audition for a job each and everyday.
Van Susteren, a lawyer, found her way into TV working as a legal analyst during the OJ Simpson trial. That led to a full-time job at CNN, she later jumped to Fox News to host a show called On the Record. After leaving Fox News, Van Susteren went to MSNBC to host a show called Off the Record, which did not last long before the plug was pulled.
Van Susteren does not have much background in politics, other than interviewing politicians from time to time on her show.
She often played it down the middle and presented both sides of the story. But, when Trump started running for President, she seemed to be on board the Trump campaign. She even hosted a show called “Meet the Trumps” in which she brought on almost everyone in the family.
In her new role, she will become the Boris Epshteyn or Gray Television.
Epshteyn works for Sinclair and is also an attorney.
