The announcement came today admist speculation on whether the host would remain on TV, turn to the movies, write a book, or just disappear. Although the disappearing act was highly unlikely, Piers Morgan was quick to ban him on CNN. Keith now has a new home on Al Gore s Current TV network and can once again return to the screen in a big way.
Current TV has struggled in recent years against rival networks, but the switch over from MSNBC could draw a whole new fan base to Al Gore s channel. With the rapid departure of Keith on MSNBC, fans were quick to leave the network, vowing not to watch any of its programming.
Will Current TV get a big boost with Olbermann or is this a wrong move for the host?
