Tuning In to TV

continued from page 1

Keith Olbermann’s CurrentTV show will launch June 20, the network announced Tuesday, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The show will be called “Countdown With Keith Olbermann,” the same name it carried on MSNBC, which he departed in January. It will air at 8 p.m. weeknights.

Mr. Olbermann announced his appointment as chief news officer of Al Gore’s CurrentTV in February.

“Nothing is more vital to a free America than a free media, and nothing is more vital to my concept of a free media than news produced independently of corporate interference,” he said at the time.

Mark Rosenthal, CEO of Current, says the show “will combine familiar and popular features with some new elements that we can’t wait to unveil. We’re creating a great platform for Keith’s style, which includes a very sophisticated digital presence for him - that we think will appeal to his very enthusiastic and active following.

“The show will also appeal to new viewers tuning into Keith for the first time.”
