NEW YORK (AP) — Greta Van Susteren is out as a nighttime host on Fox News Channel, replaced temporarily by Brit Hume starting Tuesday.
Fox did not publicly explain Van Susteren’s abrupt exit after 14 years, although a person close to the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity described it as a financial disagreement. Van Susteren was not immediately available for comment, and the news wasn’t reflected on her popular blog or Twitter feed.
The Washington-based lawyer came to Fox from CNN 14 years ago. For several years, her “On the Record” program aired at 10 p.m. ET, but moved to 7 p.m. when Fox gave a prime-time show to Megyn Kelly.
Hume is a senior political commentator for Fox. He said he’s taking on Van Susteren’s show through the election.

“Fox did not publicly explain Van Susteren’s abrupt exit after 14 years,…”
That looks really bad on liars.
I read her quotes, she was under negotiation contract and when Ailes was busted i guess it went into limbo? She said she only had a window of time whatever that means, so she had no choice. But i also remember her saying he had hit on here or something to that effect. The only ones i liked on there are gone pretty much.
