For those of you who have been suffering from Countdown withdrawal, your long wait is over. Today Keith Olbermann returns to the air with a new Countdown on Current Television, the cable network co-founded by Al Gore.
The show will air in the same 8pm slot and will initially reach 60 million homes.
I have known Keith for many years and he is a good friend. I am happy to see him launch his latest show and I have agreed to appear on the show. While I will continue to appear on other networks, I am delighted to be included in Keith’s new enterprise. He is one of this country’s most unique and talented voices. It will be great to have him holding forth on the issues of our time. Welcome back, Keith.
