Greta Van Susteren, who joined MSNBC six months ago, is out at the liberal network. Van Susteren tweeted about it this afternoon:

“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,” said MSNBC president Phil Griffin in a memo to staffers.
Van Susteren came to MSNBC after a 14-year run at Fox News, where she racked up solid ratings in her time slot. But she didn’t fare nearly as well at the more liberal network where she struggled to build an audience. The last straw may have been the June ratings, which showed an 18 percent drop from the same period a year ago.
She will be replaced by MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, Ari Melber, starting next month.
