Keith Olbermann Rejoining ESPN to Host Late-Night Show

Keith Olbermann is rejoining ESPN to host a late-night show.

Olbermann rose to prominence as a "SportsCenter" anchor from 1992-97 before one of several contentious departures that have marked his career.

The network said Wednesday that "Olbermann" will premiere Aug. 26. It will generally air at 11 p.m. ET Monday-Friday on ESPN2, depending on live event coverage on the channel. The show will include commentary, interviews, panel discussions and highlights.

His last two politically oriented jobs ended poorly. Olbermann quit abruptly in January 2011 after eight years as a prime-time host at MSNBC, and his later tenure at Current TV lasted a year before he was taken off the air and responded with a lawsuit, settled out of court.
