“Plugged in with Greta Van Susteren,” a new foreign policy program on the Voice of America, debuted this morning with host Greta Van Susteren at the helm.

“I’m thrilled to be working alongside the journalists at VOA,” said host and contributor Greta Van Susteren. “They know the world.”

Through a compilation of her recent VOA interviews with Vice President Mike Pence, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, today’s “Plugged in with Greta Van Susteren” examined North Korea and the danger it poses not just to South Korea but to the United States and the world.

“We are delighted to have Greta as a contributor to VOA” said VOA Director Amanda Bennett. "We admire her passion for foreign affairs and for the kind of straightforward, objective, fact-based news that VOA offers."

Each week on the 30-minute “Plugged in with Greta Van Susteren,” she will examine all aspects of U.S. policy through interviews with policy makers and discussion with opinion shapers. Van Susteren brings to VOA her interviewing skills and curiosity honed during her time hosting news programs for CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.

“We want ‘Plugged in with Greta Van Susteren’ to have roots in social media. What better way than to broadcast live on Facebook,” said Steve Redisch, the show’s executive producer.

“Plugged in with Greta Van Susteren” airs live every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. (Washington time) on Facebook with multiple airings via satellite. Mandarin-, Persian- and Russian-language versions of “Plugged In with Greta Van Susteren” will also be available on VOA satellite and digital channels.
