Greta Prefers To “Interact With The Viewers,” Rather Than Just Talk At Them

Thursday’s Los Angeles Times has an excellent in-depth profile of Fox News star Greta Van Susteren:

“Van Susteren had already answered hundreds of messages earlier in the day, and there were still 2,821 unread e-mails in her inbox. That’s just the way she likes it; she gazed at the blinking screen with contentment.

“I much prefer to interact with the viewers than just talk at them,” Greta says. “It’s where I think the business is headed.”

Greta “spends more than two hours a day answering e-mails, often culling the messages for tips that she incorporates into the program.” Some of those e-mails appear on her blog GretaWire, which draws more than 150,000 hits a day. In the future, she plans to post interviews that don’t make the program, and she “wants to be the first at the cable channel to podcast her show.”
