Earlier this year, Olbermann declined to comment on an MSNBC segment, claiming he hadn’t watched the channel since 2009–when he was still hosting “Countdown.”
The sports anchor returned for a second stint at ESPN last summer, hosting “Olbermann Live” on ESPN2. Before that, he was fired by Current TV, which was eventually sold to Al Jazeera.
