Is MSNBC going through some major changes? No, it’s just Greta Van Susteren leaving her job. Again. We all remember how Susteren left Fox News for MSNBC. Many said that Susteren has a few good reasons to leave MSNBC, but she didn’t provide any details.
Susteren left Fox News six months ago, and she is also leaving her current network. It seems like the host can’t stick to one position for too long. “I am out at MSNBC,” Susteren informed her Twitter followers. This came like a big shock, because everyone thought that Susteren is happy with her new job.
I am out at MSNBC –

The information was also confirmed by MSNBC President Phil Griffin. He informed his internal staffers that the decision is mutual.
“MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren have decided to part ways. Greta is a well-regarded television veteran and one of only a few broadcasters who can say they’ve hosted shows at all three major cable news networks. We are grateful to her and wish her the best, Griffin’s memo read.
Let’s just say that Griffin is trying to hide something, because Greta’s husband, John Coale, said that the decision was everything but mutual.
“They let her go. We’re working out contract issues now,” Coale explained. Well, we can only imagine the reasons Griffin had to dismiss Susteren.
Even the host was unaware of the decision, because “she found out earlier today.”
Some said that Susteren was axed after her poor ratings. Her show at MSNBC didn’t enjoy great popularity since its premiere. Does this mean that Susteren made a big mistake by leaving Fox News? Murdoch’s network is going up again, and Susteren may be regretting her decision to leave it.
There are tons of rumors associated with this major change in MSNBC. One thing stands for sure, Susteren is no longer host at the network. We don’t have any information on her new position, but we know that she is up to something.
What do you think about this decision? Was Susteren fired? If yes, what was the reason for her termination? Do you think Griffin was bothered with her poor ratings?
