Greta Deal: Fox Renews Contract

Fox News Channel host Greta Van Susteren has agreed to a new contract that will keep her at the top-rated news network for several more years.

Van Susteren’s previous contract was set to expire at the end of the year, and there had been talk that Fox might move commentator Glenn Beck or anchor Megyn Kelly to the 10 p.m. slot now occupied by Van Susteren’s “On the Record,” according to The New York Times.

With Van Susteren’s prime-time colleagues Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity already committed to Fox News through the next election cycle, her new multi-year deal — confirmed on Tuesday — gives Fox’s “hugely popular prime-time lineup an added measure of stability,” The Times observes.

Also on Tuesday, Fox rival MSNBC announced that commentator Lawrence O’Donnell will take over the channel’s 10 p.m. slot later this year, replacing a repeat of “Countdown With Keith Olbermann.” The repeat will shift to 11 p.m.

O’Donnell, who has filled in for Olbermann, worked as a legislative aide for Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan in the early 1990s and as an executive producer and writer for the NBC-TV show “The West Wing.”
