Fox News host Greta Van Susteren has decided to leave the Fox News network after 14 years, there was no reason given for her sudden departure, there have been many speculations, some reports say she wants to go back to teaching and others say it was a financial disagreement between her and the network.
“Yes, I have left the Fox News Channel. On Thursday night, I made my decision and informed Fox News of my decision that I was leaving Fox News Channel per my contract,” Van Susteren said Tuesday on her Facebook page. “Fox has not felt like home to me for a few years and I took advantage of the clause in my contract which allows me to leave now.”

The clause in her contract “had a time limitation, meaning I could not wait,” she continued. “I love my staff, I love my colleagues, and I love the crews. That is the hardest part of this decision as they are wonderful people. And most of all? I love the viewers — even the ones who have gotten mad at me over the years and taken swipes.”
The network said the long time host of the nightly news will be replaced by senior political analyst Brit Hume.
