Keith Olbermann Announces Joining Al Gore Founded, 'Current TV'

Olbermann Back in the Game

February 8, 2011

After leaving MSNBC last month, controversial anchor Keith Olbermann announced Tuesday he will be joining the Al Gore-founded Current TV.

It’s safe to say, we haven’t heard the last of Keith Olbermann. He’s not exactly the type to roll over and die. After his departure from MSNBC last month -- everyone wondered where he was headed next.

STEPHANOPOULOS: “He’s gonna have to stay off the news -- television news for some time. But, can he thrive without the platform and promotion that MSNBC gave him?”

KURTZ: “That’s a pretty good base, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts an Internet channel or something like that.” (ABC)

And this week, “something like that” came around.


“Well Keith Olbermann has apparently landed a new TV gig.”

“Keith Olbermann has landed a new TV gig.”

“Reports say Keith Olbermann, former MSNBC anchor, will tell us today about his new gig.”
(CNN)

That “new gig” is with Current TV - a public affairs channel owned by Al Gore.


Olbermann will not only anchor an hour-long, primetime program, but will also serve as the chief news officer for the network. (

In a press release, Olbermann says this about his new company:

“In Current Media, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have created the model truth-seeking entity. The opportunity... makes this the most exciting venture in my career."

Current TV is only a few years old... NOT included in every cable package... and has about 20 million FEWER viewers than MSNBC. (Current TV)

So it’s easy to see why the network wanted the powerhouse anchorman -- but what can Current offer Olbermann? Forbes suggests one thing: Independence.

“The left-leaning TV channel is privately held and independently owned by backers like Gore, which is to say Olbermann wouldn’t be at risk of clashing with any corporate overlords as he often did at NBC Universal-owned MSNBC.”
