NYT has the news on Keith O's newest home:
Keith Olbermann, the former top-rated host of “Countdown” on the news channel MSNBC, will announce his next television home on Tuesday, and people familiar with his plans pointed Monday to a possible deal with the public affairs channel Current TV.
Neither Mr. Olbermann, his representatives, or executives from Current TV would comment on the move, but they did not deny that the channel, which counts former Vice President Al Gore as one of its founders, will become at least one partner in Mr. Olbermann’s future media plans.
One of the people with knowledge of the plans said Mr. Olbermann would have an equity stake in Current TV. The people insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized by their employers to comment in advance of the official announcement.
According to The Times, this move doesn't rule out the possibility of Olbermann getting involved in an internet venture. Also according to The Times, Current TV is available in about 60 million homes compared to 85 million for MSNBC. The big difference is that Current generally requires a set top box and upgraded programming package, while MSNBC typically is available all packages from basic on up.
