May 23 (Reuters) - Veteran news anchor Greta Van Susteren will join Newsmax to host a weeknight show from Washington, D.C., the cable news network announced Monday.

The hour-long show, “The Record with Greta Van Susteren," is set to premiere on June 14, and lead the network's weeknight lineup.

A lawyer by training, Van Susteren came to national prominence as a legal analyst providing insight on the O.J. Simpson murder trial.

She went on to host shows on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC. Recently she hosted a Sunday morning show with the Gray television network and served as a contributor to Voice of America.

Newsmax rose to national prominence during the 2020 election, as President Donald Trump touted the network on social media -- even as he expressed anger at Fox News for being the first to predict Joe Biden would likely win the key state of Arizona.
