Cable news veteran Greta Van Susteren has signed with Gray Television Inc. as its chief national political analyst, the company announced on Thursday.

"After more than 20 years on cable news platforms, I am thrilled to move to broadcast news and especially excited to join Gray Television’s journalists all across the country," Van Susteren said in Thursday's announcement.

"It’s a journalist’s dream to be part of a growing media company so focused on delivering quality news in local markets big and small through trusted, local institutions like Gray’s television stations,” she added.

Van Susteren will provide Gray TV's newsrooms "with the expert, unbiased coverage of national and international political developments that have been the hallmark of her distinguished news career," the company said. "In addition, she has two nationally syndicated shows in development with Gray."

Van Susteren first became a national television host as co-host of "Burden of Proof," a legal affairs show on CNN, with Roger Cossack in 1994. She jumped to Fox News in 2002 to host "On the Record" for more than 14 years before she and the network abruptly parted ways in 2016, reportedly over a contract dispute.

The Wisconsin native was signed by MSNBC in January 2017 to host "For the Record," but the show was canceled due to poor ratings after only six months.
