Olbermann says the program “will be, for all intents and purposes, an improved and amplified and stronger version of the show I just did at my previous network,” though he added that the name and time period are still being worked out.

Olbermann will also be joining Current’s executive team, serving as the network’s “Chief News Officer.”  As “CNO,” he will provide editorial guidance on all news and political programming that airs on Current, including its critically acclaimed “Vanguard” documentary series.

Current is available in 60 million homes in the U.S., as Olbermann and Al Gore pointed out on the call, however, when he joined MSNBC in 2003, that network was in 58 million U.S. households, and subsequently saw increased carriage.




I never heard of Current Network.  Is it on my cable TV?
