The top notch publication that is The Baltimore Sun has reported that Keith Olbermann will be getting back into the sports TV journalism business. when he reports as part of the NBC Sunday Night Football pregame program, Football Night in America. Mr. Olbermann currently hosts Countdown on MSNBC and appears on the Dan Patrick Show on ESPN Radio, but this will be his triumphant return to TV sports journalism since he left Fox Sports in 2001.
I think this is a great way for NBC to leverage Keith’s previous sports journalism experience and improve their SNF programming with his creativity, wit, and general ability to speak his mind (when many are too afraid to say what they’re thinking).
Great work NBC and good luck Keith!
