Keith Olbermann's New Show Has a Familiar Name

Keith Olbermann's new show will have the same name as his old show--Countdown with Keith Olbermann--and starts June 20 on Current TV, the anchor announced on his FOK News site. Olbermann left MSNBC in January after his relationship with the network became strained over his eight years there; he was briefly suspended for making campaign contributions to Democrats. Olbermann had held onto his signature style on FOK ("Friends of Keith") News site-- his "Worst Person in the World" segment, for example, and his shots at Fox News. The show will air at 8 p.m. eastern time.
