Olbermann Looking For a New Showon October 26, 2012 at 7:08 pm
Now if he can just keep that ego of his under wraps! Forbes reports:
Seven months after he got dismissed by Current TV, the temperamental host is aggressively job-shopping, and he’s not being too picky about it.
In recent weeks, Olbermann has reached out to executives at a slew of different networks to communicate his desire for a new on-air role, according to people with knowledge of those conversations. Those include both cable outlets and at least one broadcast network.
He has expressed interest in taking over as anchor of existing shows and in starting a new show. Indeed, several of the networks he’s approached don’t have any news programming per se on their schedules. His frustration at not having a real platform during the height of election season has been evident.
And his commentary has been sorely missed. Kieth certainly knew how to rile up the base while dishing the dirt on right wing scumbaggery. I will weep bitter tears if he ends up doing sports because, bleh, who cares? It’s sports. Politics are slightly more important.
Keep your fingers crossed!
