Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren is departing the network after 14 years, the company announced in a statement Tuesday. 

“We are grateful for Greta's many contributions over the years and wish her continued success,” the statement read.

The company made no indication why Van Susteren was departing or if she was heading to another network. But Van Susteren posted on Facebook soon after the announcement saying "Fox has not felt like home to me for a few years and I took advantage of the clause in my contract which allows me to leave now."
