Looking back at 11 1/2 years of ON THE RECORD at 10 pm — we have had such great times and traveled the world! Remember these times? click to see pics (AND NOW! WE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT 7pm!!!!)

Bush UAE

This pic was taken in the UAE — President Bush and I were overlooking the Strait of Hormuz a short time after a small skirmish / threat from Iran.  We were looking in direction of Iran and, among other things, discussing their nuclear weapon ambition.

The pic below show that sometimes the two political parties and the media can talk among themselves and enjoy each other’s company:

Bush, Clinton, Greta, Hurricane

Below is one of our 3 trips to North Korea….in the pic are Hollywood (our cameraman) and Meade Cooper (OTR’s Executive Producer.)

North Korea, OTR

And of course, who can forget shopping in Afghanistan with President Karzai and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? This pic was taken at a market outside the Presidential palace.  The media pool, of which I was part of, was waiting and so we all shopped to pass the time until Secretary Clinton and President Karzai finished their private meeting.  I was looking at ties for my husband when the two of them came up to me and I heard Secretary Clinton say, “Mr. President, I want you to meet Greta Van Susteren.”  He then helped me select a tie!

Karzai, Afghanistan, Clinton

I threw out the ball at a Mets game (and yes, from the top of the mound and I made home!)

We traveled to Aruba – to Thailand – to Peru in pursuit of the Natalee Holloway story.  Check out the two pics of Joran van der Sloot.  The one on the right I took just a few months after Natalee disappeared and the one on the left was (I think) his mug shot in Peru.

One year after 9/11 — overlooking the hole left by the WTC, interviewing then New York Senator Hillary Clinton:

I ran into Vice President Biden at a charity event:

And here is the opening of the new building — Samaritan’s Purse / Greta Home and Academy in Haiti:

Here is the dinnerware at the Greta Home and Academy: (note, these may be the first plates any of these 8 orphans ever ate from!)

Below is with Reverend Graham in Sudan (note the mud on the vehicle so that the Sudanese Air Force can’t spot us to bomb us ….)

Graham Sudan

I am standing in a crater next to the school.  The Sudanese Air Force, mid day, just missed bombing the school for a children.  Note the size of the crater — it tells you the power of the bomb.

Killing time on the 2012 campaign trail in South Carolina — found some fire fighters!  We had a great time talking….and they let me have some fun (who wouldn’t want to hop in a fire truck to see what it is like?  They are such heroes that it is fun just to sit in their truck!)

Killing time in Egypt … (there is a long story behind this one….some day I will tell it when we have lots of time)

Egypt

Katrina!  We traveled with the military on boats through the streets of New Orleans (and slept on a bus.)  This skinny pup was crying from a roof top and the water was so high our boat went right to the roof.  She was lured with a sandwich….and rescued.  She was named Katrina ( of course! )

He took her home and said he was naming her Katrina

And then there was the time Jack Hanna brought his pets to our studio.  I walked into the bathroom and was startled — lying, alone in the bathroom was this sweet baby (who is probably 600 lbs now or more!)  Look at those paws!

Traveling on the Romney campaign plane in Israel

Over the years I got to know Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne….you met them on ON THE RECORD at 10pm several times in the last 11 1/1 years:

And how has the last 11 1/2 years felt like to me?  A circus …but the good kind of circus!  I have had so much fun — and learned so much — but I am so ready for a change!  7pm will be great!  We are all excited.  Yes, the pic below is from a story we did — we covered the circus (the real one, not the political one.)

And finally a pic of YOU!  You  have made us #1 at 10pm for 11 1/2 years and you are #1 in my mind!
