ESPN Brings On Olbermann For Super Bowl-Related Pieces

ESPN will bring Keith Olbermann back into the fold this week to do a couple of on-air pieces for the net in the run-up to the Super Bowl. Olbermann, who hosted “SportsCenter” from '92-97 and remains one of the show's most celebrated anchors, will have a piece on tonight’s “SC6” on unlikely Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, using the Eagles’ Nick Foles as the hook. Later in the week, he will have a piece on athletes in their 40s who achieve success, using the Patriots’ Tom Brady as the hook. This will not be the first time Olbermann has appeared on ESPN since his show, “Olbermann,” was shuttered in '15. Earlier this month, he was on “OTL” to discuss Baseball HOF voting. He also has appeared on at least one ESPN Radio show.
