Keith Olbermann, known for his infamous anti-Trump tirade has just been picked up by the Disney owned company, ESPN.
Olbermann’s first assignment under the new deal comes Monday, as he will call the Astros-Yankees game on ESPN Radio, according to ESPN’s news release. Olbermann also will co-host some editions of PTI and will make appearances on Outside the Lines.
The new pact with Olbermann will likely be dissected by some right-leaning commentators, many of whom have hammered ESPN over an alleged left-leaning bias. Olbermann has been a frequent – and forceful -- critic of President Trump and other Republicans on social media and other mediums.
Olbermann, who left ESPN for the first time in 1997, gained prominence outside sports by hosting Countdown, a political show on MSNBC and Current TV.
Olbermann had a show on ESPN2 from 2013-15.
