Countdown with Keith Olbermann


“Countdown With Keith Olbermann,” the landmark news and commentary program that reordered the world of cable news, returns as a daily podcast. Olbermann’s daily news-driven mix will include his trademark “Special Comment” political analysis, the tongue-in-cheek “Worst Persons In The World” segment, and his timeless readings from the works of the immortal James Thurber. The man who turned SportsCenter into a cultural phenomenon will broaden the content to include a daily sports segment, a daily call for help for a suffering dog, and a remarkable series of anecdotes covering a career that stretched from covering the 1980 Olympic Miracle on Ice a month after his 21st birthday, to anchoring the 2009 Presidential Inauguration and the 2009 Super Bowl pre-game show in a span of just twelve days, to rejoining ESPN as a “rookie” baseball play-by-play man at the age of 59.

  • Love this Podcast

    Keith is smart, entertaining and has amazing media, politics and sports stories to share. Sometimes brutal commentary that I catch every day now that I have found his podcast.

  • Keith you obviously missed this one in claiming various media misquoted Hur. The Executive Summary clearly states "President Biden willfully retained .... ." There is no " did not" or any negative proceeding the quoted part.
