Keith Olbermann, the controversial host recently ousted by MSNBC, is going to work for former Vice President Al Gore. Olbermann said he would announce his next destination Tuesday, but The New York Times reported it likely will involve a deal with the public affairs channel Current TV, co-founded by Gore.
Neither Olbermann, his representatives, or executives from Current TV would comment on the move to the Times, but they did not deny that the channel will be at least one partner in Olbermann’s media future.
Olbermann scheduled a Tuesday morning conference call for an announcement about his next job. “He and his new partners will make an exciting announcement regarding the next chapter in his remarkable career,” the agency wrote in an e-mail to the Times.
Olbermann announced last month on air that he had resigned as host of "Countdown" following a frayed relationship with the network; he was briefly suspended in November for making political campaign contributions.
Since leaving the network he has left cryptic messages on his Twitter page such as "Watch this Space."
