Former MSNBC and Fox News host Greta Van Susteren is returning to television with a new nationally syndicated weekend political show through local news giant Gray Television.


Full Court Press with Greta Van Susteren will air evenings starting in September and will feature Greta’s “no-nonsense, straightforward style” according to a press release from Gray Television.

Through a mixture of roundtable discussions, interviews, and investigative reports from local station reporters, Full Court Press will “focus on how policy actions, political decisions, and national events impact local communities across the country.”

Gray will also launch Full Court Press-Overtime in August across multiple digital platforms giving the show “instant feedback on topics and questions that matter most to viewers.”

“We believe viewers will embrace Ms. Van Susteren’s firm but tough approach with elected and other leaders to bolster the trusted, quality news our viewers already depend upon,” Gray chairman and CEO Hilton Howell Jr. said in a statement. “Our goal is to provide critical information without bias to allow viewers to form their own opinions and reach their own decisions by exploring all sides of a complex issue.”


“News isn’t entertainment,” Van Susteren said in an interview reported by Variety. “News is a service…I thought, ‘How do you reach the voters?’ and this seemed to be the smartest way.”
