Olbermann to Anchor Current TV’s Primary Coverage After New Hampshire…

The Hollywood Reporter’s Marisa Guthrie scoops that Keith Olbermann will be in the anchor chair after the New Hampshire Primary…

After a rocky week of public sniping between Keith Olbermann and the management of Current, Olbermann will anchor on election nights beginning after the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.

“I am pleased that I’ll be running the election coverage on Current, following this Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary,” said Olbermann in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday. “However, I don’t think those participating in the New Hampshire primary will share my satisfaction.”

A spokesperson for Current confirmed that progress between the two parties was made over the weekend and that they expect Olbermann to participate in election coverage going forward.

  1. What a mess. The tiff between Current and KO effectively spoils any goodwill their viewers may have had towards this new endeavor. Game. Over.

  2. in other news, Current announced they will execute six Young Turks at sunrise Wednesday morning.

    “running”? Didn’t he mean “ruining”?

    Ouch. Olby is so irrelevant that my post is only number 4. Remember when people cared about the guy? Good times.
