Off the Record

Greta: 14 years at Fox News and why I'm so lucky

By Greta Van Susteren

Let's go "Off the Record." I am one of the luckiest people. Today marks the 14th anniversary of the launch of "On the Record."

My thoughts? What a great opportunity to work here at Fox News. As host of "On the Record," I've traveled all over the world - Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea, Egypt, Cambodia, Aruba, Sudan, Pakistan, Uruguay, Haiti, Europe, et cetera, and all over the United States from Florida to Alaska. Plus, I have interviewed world leaders, from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to both President Bushes, President Bill Clinton, then-Senator Barack Obama, secretaries of State, members of Congress and so many other leaders and sports stars and movie stars. 

But that's not why I'm so lucky. I'm lucky because I have a great staff. They're my very best friends, and they are so smart.

I am also lucky because Roger Ailes, who built this number one network, took a chance with me. He could have hired someone else. But most of all, I'm lucky because of you, the viewers. You viewers are incredibly loyal. You have kept "On the Record" number one in its time slot since 2002. That's a big deal. 

So, thank you, and happy anniversary to all of us, including you. And that's my "Off the Record" comment tonight.
