Greta Van Susteren on Move to MSNBC: ‘I’m Thrilled to Be Here’

Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” former Fox News Channel “On the Record” host and soon to be MSNBC “For the Record” host Greta Van Susteren offered her thoughts on the transition to MSNBC.

Van Susteren, who also had a hosting role on CNN, described herself as “the luckiest person alive” and “thrilled” to be at MSNBC.

“You know, and Rachel, thank you, that’s so kind of you and I couldn’t be happier,” Van Susteren said. “I mean, just think about it, I’m the luckiest person alive. I mean, look, I have many good friends over at CNN and over at Fox News Channel, who have been colleagues, too. But just think about this — I know Chris Matthews, known him for years, Andrea Mitchell, travelled the world with her following secretaries of state and even trying to keep up with Andrea because she outraces all of us. You and I have been friends for a long time. To be honest, you and my husband and I have tipped a few glasses of wine together — or more. So I mean, like — how could I not be luckier? It’s like this is just so exciting. This is fun for me. I’m thrilled to be here.”

Van Susteren’s MSNBC show debuts Monday at 6 p.m. ET.
