Keith Olbermann Gets A New Job, WAY More Basebally Than The Last!

Filed under: TV NewsZportzBaseball

keith olbermann tbs major league baseball mlb postseason show job current tv

Current TV is eating its decision to boot Keith Olbermann, because he's totally moving on to bigger and better things! That's right, TBS has hired him to… wait… really? To host the TBS’ Major League Baseball postseason studio show?

Nevermind, Current TV is probably still happy with their decision! LOLz!

Keith, in his first post-Current job, will be joining analyst and Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley. You might not remember this, but Keith is a veteran sports reporter/anchor in addition to all those years doing just the news! He anchored ESPN’s SportsCenter from 1992 to 1997. He was even recently a guest host of MLB Network’s Hot Stove.

So yeah, he's qualified — it just seems like a step backwards from reporting on big world news!

A job's a job, though! Ha!

Well, well, well Mr. Olbermann!! Taking responsibility for your actions???

Kind of…

Last night, the ex-Current TV anchor appeared on Letterman and addressed the whole Current TV firing/legal debacle, doing something that hardly anyone in the limelight does these days…he admitted fault!

In the most vague, circumventing way ever…but still! It's something.

He did create a metaphor in which he is a $10 million dollar chandelier and Current TV is a dilapidated housing unit, so um, he is still deceptively making a jab at the network.

We've been avidly following this back and forth between Al Gore's network and this bigger than life newsie personality, and everything indicated that Olbermann was an ego-maniac who would never admit defeat.

We were…wrong?

Ch-ch-check out the interview AFTER THE JUMP!!!
