Greta Conway Van Susteren - Lawyer, commentator and former television news anchor for CNN, Fox News, and NBC News; Greta Conway Van Susteren was born on June 11, 1954 in Appleton, Wisconsin.
In 2016, Van Susteren was listed as the 94th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes - up from 99th in 2015
Van Susteren's father, Urban Van Susteren, was a longtime friend of future U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy. McCarthy was best man at Greta Van Susteren's parents' wedding. Urban Van Susteren, an elected judge, served as a campaign strategist for McCarthy, although Urban later broke with him.
Van Susteren graduated from Xavier High School in Appleton in 1972 and the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1976, where she studied geography and economics.
Van Susteren later earned a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1979 and prior to the start of her television work returned to Georgetown Law as an adjunct faculty member in addition to her full-time legal career.
On September 6, 2016, she resigned from Fox News where she had been on air since 2002. She was not able to say goodbye on-air, as the network immediately filled the On the Record anchor spot with Brit Hume. Van Susteren, who said that Fox "has not felt like home to me for a few years," chose to take advantage of a clause in her contract that allowed her to resign from the network immediately: "The clause had a time limitation, meaning I could not wait."
