Gretchen Carlson, who settled a multi-million lawsuit late last year against former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, is in talks with MSNBC to join the network, sources familiar with the matter told Business Insider.
A source familiar with the matter said Carlson’s deal had not yet been finalized, but was nearing completion. Two others at the network, including a high-level source, corroborated the news.
An MSNBC spokesperson initially said Carlson had not joined the network, but would not comment on if she was in talks to do so. After publication of this story, the MSNBC spokesperson denied Carlson was in talks with the network. A representative for Carlson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Greta Van Susteren, who also left Fox News last year, has signed with MSNBC to host her own show on the network.
