On the Record is an American current affairs television program on the Fox News Channel.

The program features news stories of the day, following the latest information from correspondents on location and officials related to the issue. Like most networks, the program also consists of analysis from legal analysts of the network and the host on the stories it's following. Additionally, the program also may derail from criminal stories to follow breaking news of the day, as do other programs on the network.

From its debut in January 2002 until October 4, 2013, the program broadcast live out of Fox News's Washington studio each weekday at 10:00 p.m. ET and replayed at 1:00 a.m. ET. On October 7, 2013, the show began airing weekdays at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Major interviews[edit]

While host Greta Van Susteren is a lawyer with an extensive background in law (including years teaching as an adjunct professor at Georgetown Law School), she also covers political issues, conducting major interviews with people such as former Presidents George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, as well as traveling overseas with the White House. Henry Kissinger is often asked to comment on the most important recent events. She has traveled to Alaska several times and interviewed former Governor Sarah Palin. She has interviewed Rush Limbaugh by phone. Important Democrats she has interviewed include former President Bill Clinton in 2008 as well as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in both 2009 and 2013.[1][2]

Criticism[edit]

In late 2005, there was considerable coverage by On the Record of the Natalee Holloway affair. As the year wore on, coverage of the story moved from the actual case to Beth Holloway-Twitty's endeavors.[3] Additionally, the story brought On the Record its highest ratings to date,[4] keeping the story on the front burner, though essentially no new information came to light. This coverage was labeled "missing white woman syndrome,"[5] with the addition of other stories covered in the following months. Interest in the story eventually dwindled, though the program's website continued to feature a special section on the case.[citation needed]
