    Looks like Megyn Kelly started something of a trend. 

    MSNBC announced Thursday that former Fox News Channel host Greta Van Susteren will be joining the network to host an hourlong program, "For the Record with Greta," which will air weeknights at 6 p.m. ET beginning Monday and will be based in Washington D.C.

    “Greta is a true pro with a proven record of tough journalism,” said MSNBC President Phil Griffin. “Her broad range of experience and sharp news judgment will be of great value to MSNBC as we build on our momentum going into a new year and a new administration.”

    A 25-year cable news veteran, Van Susteren joins MSNBC from Fox News Channel, where she hosted “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” for 14 years. Previously, Van Susteren spent more than a decade at CNN, where she served as a legal analyst and co-host of “Burden of Proof” and hosted the news program “The Point.”
