Keith Olbermann isn’t taking too much time to rest after being canned from his show Countdown. It sounds like he’ll be getting right back to work but this time it won’t be with one of the big cable networks like his ex-employers MSNBC or ESPN. Nope, it’s being heavily speculated that Keith Olbermann will be joining Current TV. On Tuesday…a PR firm will be holding a conference call saying that Oblermann “and his new partners will make an exciting announcement regarding the next chapter in his remarkable career.” And the new partners won’t be just be his employers. There is word that Keith Obermann will get an equity stake in the San Francisco based Current TV, the station which was founded by Al Gore among others. This smaller station is apparently hoping that a news powerhouse like Keith Obermann – who had millions of viewers each night – will ignite their station into a more powerful position.
