Keith Olbermann Wooed To Current TV By Al Gore: THR

Al Gore personally asked Keith Olbermann to come to Current TV less than 24 hours after he left MSNBC, the former vice president told the Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.
THR says it was Gore who convinced Olbermann to make the move to Current. “We’ve been friends for a while,” he told THR.
During the conference call in which he announced his move, Olbermann made a point of praising Gore and saying how honored he was to be working for him.
THR says that the Current show, which does not yet have a title, will probably premiere in late May, after the deal Olbermann made with NBC blocking him from appearing on other networks ends.
Sources also told THR that Olbermann went to Current because it falls outside the terms of that deal, which specifies different channels that Olbermann cannot work for, even after the non-compete clause ends.
