Keith Olbermann the Subject of ESPN Book Excerpt

By Alex Weprin Comment

Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann is the subject of an excerpt from the upcoming book chronicling the history of ESPN Those Guys Have All the Fun. Olbermann put ESPN’s signature program, “SportsCenter,” on the map along with co-anchor Dan Patrick.

I remember when Olbermann said to me, “Do you know how much this job is worth?” And I said no. He said, “It’s worth a million fucking dollars.” Keith looked at it as a businessman, saying, “Do you know what they’re making off of this?”

Our sister blog SportsNewser has more on the book.
