Fox News host Greta Van Susteren has once again been named by Forbes to its list of “The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.”
Van Susteren returns for her sixth time on the list, which Forbes said includes “the smartest and toughest female business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, philanthropists and CEOs making their mark in the world today.” She moved up five spots from No. 99 to 94.
In honoring her, Forbes said, “The longest-running cable news anchor in the U.S., Van Susteren hosts On the Record on Fox News; in February, she celebrated the production of her 3,500th episode. Guests on the live news show have included Bill and Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Henry Kissinger and sports and entertainment figures such as Mike Tyson and Kim Kardashian.”
The Rev. Franklin Graham used his Facebook page to congratulate Van Susteren.
“Congratulations to our friend Greta Van Susteren for being included on the Forbes’ list of ‘The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women’ for the 6th year running! Greta stands out because she uses her influence and her voice to shine a spotlight on people who need help,” he wrote.
“A former criminal defense and civil trial lawyer, the Georgetown law grad got her start on TV as a legal commentator at CNN, contributing to coverage of the O.J. Simpson murder trial and the Elian Gonzalez custody battle,” Forbes wrote in honoring her. “At CNN she co-hosted a daily legal analysis show, Burden of Proof, and hosted the station’s prime-time news and analysis show, The Point with Greta Van Susteren, before joining Fox in 2002. This year, Van Susteren is penning a book on best social media practices, which will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2017.”
