After 14 years at Fox News, Greta Van Susteren announced her departure from the right-winged network in September and revealed she'd be joining MSNBC for her new show For The Record. But just six months after the premiere, Van Susteren's business is finished with the left-leaning network.

"I am out at MSNBC," the TV host posted on Twitter Thursday.

On the heels of Greta's shocking announcement, MSBC released an official statement, revealing that Ari Melber will be replacing Van Susteren, saying:

"MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren have decided to part ways. Greta is a well-regarded television veteran and one of only a few broadcasters who can say they've hosted shows at all three major cable news networks. We are grateful to her and wish her the best.

I'm also please to share that Ari Melber, MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent and host of The Point on weekends will become the permanent host of the 6pm hour next month. Ari is a frequent presence on TODAY and across various MSNBC shows and will continue those appearances as he takes on his new duties.

As you know, Ari has filled in for our prime time hosts, showing a natural ease with the anchor chair. Before Ari starts, we'll have a rotation to cover six o'clock.

Please join me in wishing Greta well as she departs. We have enjoyed having her on our air and we're thankful to her and the show team."
