As a kid, Keith Olbermann would daydream of being a TV broadcaster. The only question was: sports or news? After nearly 40 years in the business, Olbermann has done both, with gigs at CNN, Fox Sports, MSNBC, twice, and ESPN, twice. A column in the Washington Post played a big part in his early success and the guy who gave Olbermann his “First Big Break” in TV would give him another break later on.
