THE REPORT comes from the Hollywood Reporter:
Keith Olbermann has resolved the $50 million legal dispute with Current TV over his firing from the network, a well-placed source tells The Hollywood Reporter.
A settlement is said to have been reached during a private mediation session in San Francisco on Tuesday. Terms of the deal will not be disclosed. Olbermann and Current, who sued each other in April 2012 over his dismissal from the liberal-leaning network, are expected to file court documents soon dismissing the case.
Recently, the New York Times reported that Olbermann was “pushing for a return to ESPN” and getting back to a sports beat. As of today, however, his career remains in limbo.
At a time when there are innumerable outlets for talents as large as Keith Olbermann, the fact that he hasn’t found a platform for his views and his voice remains on him.
