Fox news

Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren announced Tuesday morning that she will depart Fox News after 14 years with the network.

It was not immediately clear why Van Susteren was leaving the network. But the news came just minutes after Fox announced that it had settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with former host Gretchen Carlson for a whopping $20 million.

“We are grateful for Greta’s many contributions over the years and wish her continued success,” Fox News co-presidents Jack Abernethy and Bill Shine said.

Fox also released a statement saying that Brit Hume will take over as the new host of “On the Record.”

“As one of the best political analysts in the industry, Brit Hume is the ideal choice to host a nightly political program while the most dynamic and captivating election in recent history unfolds. Having Brit at the helm of this show will enable Fox News to continue on track to have its highest-rated year ever as the network dominates the cable news landscape.”

Hume previously anchored “Special Report,” the network’s flagship weekly political news show. He retired as the show’s host in 2008 and transitioned to senior political analyst.
