Olbermann Re-Ups with MSNBC for 4 More Years

By    |   Monday, 10 Nov 2008 05:14 PM

MSNBC has extended Keith Olbermann's contract to host "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" for four years.

Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, said the new agreement calls for Olbermann to continue as host of "Countdown," as well as play a prominent role in MSNBC's coverage of all major news events. Obermann will continue to co-host NBC's "Football Night in America" studio show.

"Keith Olbermann is at the core of MSNBC's current success," Griffin said. "'Countdown' is our signature program and I'm thrilled that we're going to be able to bring it to Keith's loyal viewers for another four-year term."

Olbermann said, "I'm delighted that we can continue to lock 'Countdown' into the nation's political dialogue through at least the next election. Personally, I noticed that as of about six weeks ago, I'd been doing this show longer than I did SportsCenter, so it's delightful to have a true home."
