In a shocking revelation, Fox News viewers found out Tuesday, that “On the Record” anchor Greta Van Susteren will be leaving the network immediately.
The announcement came on the heels of a whopping settlement awarded to former Fox host Gretchen Carlson after she alleged sexual harassment charges against ex-CEO Roger Ailes.
Van Susteren’s seemingly quick departure left open for a lot of speculation, and the ex-Fox host tried to temper it a bit with a quick statement to Twitter saying she hadn’t felt “at home” at the network for years.

Greta had been critical of ex-coworker Carslon’s allegations against Ailes. Some have speculated it was the huge settlement and apology from Fox News to Carslon that put Van Susteren “over the edge.”
@greta Love you Greta! I’m HATING this!

Fox senior political analyst Brit Hume will be taking over as “On the Record” anchor, Sept 6. Needless to say, Van Susteren fans aren’t too happy about it.
@greta I will miss you. I won’t be watching Brit Hume the Trump brasher. I won’t be watching Fox either.

@greta wow, what a shocker, I’m sure you will land on your feet, you should team up with Sharyl Attkinsson and start a new network.
