Keith Olbermann Reportedly Going to Current TV
Bill Carter and Brian Stelter report in the New York Times that Keith Olbermann will announce Tuesday a deal with Current TV.
Neither Mr. Olbermann, his representatives, or executives from Current TV would comment on the move, but they did not deny that the channel, which counts former Vice President Al Gore as one of its founders, will become at least one partner in Mr. Olbermann’s future media plans.
One of the people with knowledge of the plans said Mr. Olbermann would have an equity stake in Current TV. The people insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized by their employers to comment in advance of the official announcement.
Current TV is owned privately by Al Gore and other investors. Two days before Olbermann’s announced departure from MSNBC the Internet domain name TheOlbermannShow.com was registered.Click here for reuse options!
