Keith Olbermann Leaves MSNBC

Posted By on Fri, Jan 21, 2011 at 9:14 PM

Lawrence O'Donnell takes Keith's place and the somewhat insufferable Ed Schultz takes O'Donnell's slot. According to the NY Times, Olbermann "came to an agreement with NBC’s corporate management late this week to settle his contract and step down."

UPDATE from Howard Kurtz at the Daily Beast: "A knowledgeable official said the move had nothing to do with Comcast taking control of NBC next week, although the cable giant was informed when it received final federal approval for the purchase that Olbermann would be leaving the cable channel. This official described the dramatic divorce—Olbermann was about halfway through a four-year, $30 million contract—as mutual."
