The rocky relationship with MSNBC has finally come to an end according to NY Times. Let the bidding war begin? Well we at least know he is not going to FOX. I could see him going back to ESPN in a second.

In a statement, MSNBC said, “the last broadcast of ‘Countdown with Keith Olbermann’ will be this evening.”
Keith Olbermann, the highest-rated host on MSNBC, announced abruptly on the air Friday night that he is leaving “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” immediately.
The host, who has had a stormy relationship with the management of the network for some time, especially since he was suspended for two days last November, came to an agreement with NBC’s corporate management late this week to settle his contract and step down.
In a closing statement on his show, Mr. Olbermann said simply that it would be the last edition of the program. He offered no explanation other than on occasion, the show had become too much for him.
Mr. Olbermann thanked his viewers for their enthusiastic support of a show that had “gradually established its position as anti-establishment.”
