(Reuters) - Comcast Corp's CMCSA.O MSNBC unit said on Thursday that Fox News veteran Greta Van Susteren had joined the company and will host a new program called "For the Record".

Van Susteren hosted "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" for 14 years at Fox News, a unit of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc FOXA.O.

Van Susteren is the latest high-profile exit from Fox News.

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said on Tuesday she would leave the channel and join Comcast unit NBC News.

Van Susteren’s new show on MSNBC will debut on Jan. 9 and will replace Bloomberg’s political television show “With All Due Respect,” which ended in early December.
