Olbermann Seeks Path Back To ESPN; Skipper Indicates Return Not Imminent
Published March 4, 2013
WHAT ROLE WOULD HE HAVE? AWFUL ANNOUNCING's Ken Fang writes the odds "are pretty firm against" Olbermann returning, though he speculates about what Olbermann's role would be should he come back to the net. Olbermann likely has "outgrown doing highlights on a nightly basis" on "SportsCenter." However, he could host "Baseball Tonight" on "nights when Karl Ravech is off." Fang: "With his encyclopedic knowledge, tapping Keith's mind for various documentaries could add some perspective, not to mention some colorful descriptions. And there's always the .com aspect where Keith could write for a blog on the website similar to his posts for MLBlogs.com" (AWFULANNOUNCING.com, 3/4).
