Olbermann Has New TV Job

Former MSNBC personality Keith Olbermann has been named chief news officer on Current-TV, the  cable network started by Al Gore. Olbermann will host a nightly “news” and commentary show according to the network’s websitewhere he “will lead” the programming slate.

“Nothing is more vital to a free America than a free media, and nothing is more vital to my concept of a free media than news produced independently of corporate interference,” said Olbermann in  statement.

Olbermann’s compensation will include equity in Current Media, the corporate owners of Current-TV.

Olbermann left the constantly low-rated MSNBC on Jan. 21 three days after the network was acquired by Comcast along with the rest of NBC Universal.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing with regard to Current-TV is that has even fewer viewers that Olbermann’s old network.

Corporate question of the day: will Olbermann’s stake of stock cause him to stifle the spit and spite for the benefit of profits now that they are his own?

  1. Welcome Keith Olbermann to Al Gore’s Current-TV now destined to be America’s leading news network.
    Mr. Olbermann is, indeed,an intelligent, clear thinking voice who will alert our nation to the dangers of global warming. I am certain he will warn America that many of us will perish when the icebergs and glaciers melt.
    His lucid commentary will lead Current TV to the fore and leave The Fox network and Bill O’ Reilly cringing in pain and fear. O’Reilly and his fellow radicals like Sean O’Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck will soon be history.
    Hopefully, Keith will interview some of my favorites–Joe Biden. Joe Sestak, Arlen Spector, Nancy Pelosi,and of course get tips from my special favorite Barney Frank.
    He can also probably get advice on how to operate a news network from Michael Moore.
    Oooh! I’ll bet you are all as excited as I am.
