Greta Has a New Spokeswoman

27cd8f1.jpgThere’s new blood at FNC.

Abby Sears has recently joined FNC’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” as an Associate Producer. She will handle all media requests for Van Susteren’s show.

How’d she end up working for Van Susteren?

While working for the school newspaper, the Daily Cardinal, Sears covered a homicide of UW student Brittany Zimmermann, a story which Van Susteren covered on her show.

Zimmerman was killed in her downtown apartment in April 2008 by an intruder who still has not been caught.

Later, the University of Wisconsin-Madison website carried a story on Sears. “Her reporting led to several appearances on Greta Van Susteren’s ‘On the Record’ and a summer internship at Fox News in New York.”

Sears interned for FNC in June, 2008 for three months. She worked as a production assistant for FNC in Manhattan from December 2009 until earlier this month. The 2009 Journalism grad also worked as a marketing and public affairs intern at UW Health.
