Greta Van Susteren: Bio, Parents, Siblings, Ethnicity
she was born on June 11, 1954, in Appleton, Wisconsin, USA, of Dutch and Irish origin. Greta’s parents were close friends with a number of politicians, including the notorious US Senator Joseph McCarthy, who even attended their wedding.
Greta’s siblings would go on to work in politics or journalism in the future.
She graduated from Appleton’s Xavier High School in 1972 and enrolled in the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in geography and economics.
She continued her education at Georgetown University Law Center, where she received her Juris Doctorate in 1979.
All about Greta Van Susteren’s Career
Greta worked as a civil and criminal attorney in Wisconsin for several years before returning to Georgetown University Law Center as an adjunct faculty member while continuing to practice law full-time, which likely helped to her receiving a doctor of laws degree from Stetson Law School.
Her profile as an attorney developed as a result of her success and expertise, and she became a regular legal analyst for CNN during the coverage of the OJ Simpson murder trial, which led to more television employment.
Van Susteren began her television hosting career as one of the co-hosts of the CNN show “Burden of Proof and The Point.” She also appeared as a celebrity guest on the Cartoon Network series “Space Ghost Coast to Coast.”
She worked for CNN for several years before making the highly publicized switch to Fox News Channel in 2002, which led to her being the host of the current affairs show “On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren.”
The show covered a variety of news items from across the world, including coverage from on-the-ground correspondents as well as official pronouncements on current events. Fox legal analysts appeared on the show on a regular basis, and “On the Record” became recognized for breaking away from their regular programming to cover breaking news of the day; Greta hosted the show until 2016.
While working for Fox, she founded The Greta Home and Academy, an orphanage and school that she co-founded with her husband. She chastised US Senate candidate Dwayne Stovall in 2014 for releasing an unpleasant ad in which he claimed he was a jerk. Her Fox show was met with mixed reviews.
Greta resigned from Fox News in 2016 — she wasn’t allowed to say ‘goodbye’ on-air because her spot on the show “On the Record” was immediately filled by Brit Hume. Greta went on to say that Fox had not felt like home to her in a few years, so she chose to resign from the network right away to take advantage of a time limit in her contract.
She joined NBC News as the anchor of the 6 p.m. program on MSNBC early the following year. The show was eventually renamed “For the Record with Gretta,” and she hosted it for six months before the network cancelled it.
According to a tweet, she indicated that her show’s ratings were low, causing her to be “fired from MSNBC.” She became a contributor for Voice of America a few months later. She is also a member of the National Institute for Civil Discourse (NICD), which was founded by the University of Arizona in the aftermath of the 2011 Tucson shooting.
Net Worth and Salary
Greta Van Susteren’s net worth is unknown. Sources estimate her net worth to be $35 million as of mid-2022, based on her performance on television (she’s also worked for CNN, NBC News, and MSNBC).
It is believed that her riches would expand as she continues her pursuits.
Relationship Status: Divorced?
Van Susteren married tort lawyer John P. Coale in 1988, according to her public record. He had worked with her as a partner during her full-time law practice, so they had known one other for a long time.
They are both members of the Church of Scientology, and the couple is known to have worked together on various charity endeavors since then. She was a former co-owner of the Old Mill restaurant in Mattituck, New York, from 2006 to 2014.
