The opinionated journalist, 54, hasn’t been on TV much lately, at least regularly —a year ago, the former ESPN Sports Center anchor and host of MSBNC’s Countdown With Keith Olbermann was canned from his gig as chief news officer and host at Current TV. You can find him holding court at his Twitter feed, and he pontificates on his favorite sport on the MLB blog Baseball Nerd. He’s also looking for the next Keith Olbermann: Last month, he helped buy a new headquarters for the independent student-run radio station where he worked while attending his alma mater, Cornell University.
