Keith Olbermann’s departure

Regarding Keith Olbermann’s ouster from MSNBC… and I’m pretty sure this was an ouster… this was also a negotiated exit. Keith wasn’t happy. NBC didn’t want him around with Comcast taking over.

NBC probably paid him lots of money to leave before his contract was up. In return, he’ll honor the noncompete agreement, and he’s probably barred from telling us how it all really went down.

In the meantime, TMZ has some alleged insider information – and they’re usually pretty good with the inside media stuff. You can see their article here.

I’m really sad to see him leave. Countdown was part of my afternoon ritual when I get home from the office. But, depending on the terms of his exit, we may have him sooner rather than later on radio or the Internet. It’ll probably be awhile before he can do another TV show though.
