The controversial former MSNBC “Countdown” host abruptly resigned last month following a stressed relationship with the network that included his 11/10 suspension over political contributions. Now on 2/8 at 11 AM ET, he announced that he’ll hold a press conference where his “new partners” will reveal “the next chapter of his remarkable career,” according to a press release.
The NY Times also indicated 2/8 its sources said Olbermann may have a deal with public affairs channel Current TV, in which former VP Al Gore is a founder. The Times has heard Olbermann would have an equity stake in the cable net. Current TV also set up a presentation with advertisers 2/9 to announce its future plans, so that is fairly telling.
