Filed under: TV NewsZportzMedia Minute

keith olbermann espn sports show returning

Remember when we declared that Keith Olbermann got a new job, and that it was waaaay more basebally than the last?

It looks like we were OFFICIALLY right — just, with ESPN instead of TBS! LOLz!

He'll be hosting an 11 pm show on ESPN 2, and it debuts on Aug. 26th — this was JUST announced! We still don't have a title, though, which is super bogus this late in the game! Here's what Keith said about it:

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

Filed under: TV NewsZportzBaseball

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!

Keith Olbermann Is Filing His Lawsuit Against Current TV…TODAY!

Keith Olbermann filing lawsuit

Why would anyone buy a $10 million chandelier? Because it can talk, host a television show, then sue you after it's fired!

Keith "The $10 Million Lighting Fixture" Olbermann wasn't kidding about taking action against Al Gore's Current TV for his early dismissal. His attorney, Patricia Glaser, has revealed that the anchor is filing a lawsuit against his former employer…TODAY!

We're not sure about the inside details that will make or break this case for the disgruntled newsman, but he's got good representation. Glaser helped Conan O'Brien take home a $45 million settlement from NBC during his Tonight Show debacle.

When are both parties going to wake up and realize they are just being Punk'd by Ashton Kutcher Justin Bieber?

Keith Olbermann Admits He "Screwed Up"…Sort Of.

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersAl GoreDavid Letterman

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!!!

Keith Olbermann's Last Straw At Current TV Revealed!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

Keith Olbermann firing details

Keith Olbermann was fired from Current TV last Thursday, but it turns out this ugly split was pretty much inevitable. The tension between the news anchor and network executives has been pretty thick for quite some time and sources are revealing the straw that finally broke the camel's back.

On top of lacking "values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty," Olbermann was fired for

More Olbermann Vs. Gore Deets!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersAl Gore

Gore V Olbermann

Wow, nobody really likes each other over there! It's no wonder Olbermann got fired — both sides are being nasty, and Al Gore was in the position to fire!

We first brought you the news of the firing, along with Current's reason of a lack of "values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty" as the reasons.

And then Olberman fired back with a long-winded rant, which you can read here, which ended up saying he was going to sue them all.

Now we're hearing more as to why he was let go:

'Management claimed that the former MSNBC host did not fulfill his duties with press and marketing events and missed 19 days of work in January and February.'

We'd say missing obligations and 19 days of work is absolutely grounds to fire you!

Wonder how that'll go down in court!
