KEITH OLBERMANN BIO
Olbermann won his third Murrow award during the last of his eight seasons as Managing Editor and host of the same program on MSNBC. As host of "Countdown," Olbermann attracted a large and devoted audience, his outspoken commentary, rhetorical virtuosity, and undeniable passion making the show the highest–rated program on MSNBC as well as lightning rod for controversy.

His work on "SportsCenter" from 1992 to 1997, distinguished by his provocative blending of pop culture and sports, launched a new era of sportscasting. While at ESPN, Olbermann was chosen to launch the ESPN Radio Network and ESPN2. He also co-authored the critically acclaimed book "The Big Show" about his experiences working on "SportsCenter." After being offered a joint position with NBC News and NBC Sports, Olbermann left ESPN in 1997. In addition to hosting the World Series and Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game, and contributing to pre-game coverage of the Super Bowl, he anchored two nightly primetime news programs on MSNBC, "The Big Show," and "White House In Crisis," and served as a substitute anchor on weekend editions of NBC Nightly News.
