I'm thinking that fellow Olbermann junkies  will enjoy the suspense.
We are hours or perhaps minutes away from Keith's long awaited announcement about going back to live news broadcasting on Current TV.

The Fok News DKOS Group publishes a  diary summary of Keith's opinion blog Fok News.

Show Announcements Tuesday
Posted on April 25, 2011

As I mentioned on Twitter, we will have some big announcements tomorrow morning (Tuesday the 26th) about the new show on Current. There will be morning tweets, morning news stories, and, only on this site – VIDEO. Sorry for the suspense (not really, but I have to say that, don’t I?)

How do you find Current TV in your zip code? Just click on this link and look for the interactive box.  

Here is a like for watching current tv on the web.

Morning on the east coast is almost over.  


Keith's program, Countdown with Keith Olbermann will begin on Current TV begin Monday, June 20th at 8PM Eastern.

It will be replayed at 11 and 2AM.  Keith promises a huge on line footprint and some content that will be available only on the web.

I just wish it were sooner.
Like Keith said, June 20 is about as late spring as you can get.

This portion of the transcript of Keith's remarks

gives me goosebumps.....
I think it means that we are going to be getting Countdown on steroids.
I wanted to go somewhere that I could expand and enlarge the work that I have already done.  

A place where journalistic integrity and analytical honesty would never be compromised by corporate synergy.

A place where no one would proclaim the ultimate dishonesty that balancing a lie for any truth is somehow fair.

I found that place in Current TV and even though they told me that I'd be in charge, and they gave me a title and an equity stake and A PONY!

I have still been delightfully startled in the free hand I've been given to assemble the finest staff - on air and off in television news.

Merely by moving my new home on Current, I know that my new show will improve. We will also increase the program's edge and the pointedness of its commentary. But I'm going to call it Countdown so that you know that this decision protects the editorial  independence that makes it possible for me to do this work.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
