Keith Olbermann Plans New FOKNewsChannel Website

Former MSNBC 8 PM host Keith Olbermann has already announced his plans to join Current TV, but it seems he also has some digital ideas in the works.
Olbermann tweeted through his @FOKNewsChannel account: “Proud to announce: Coming very very soon – your FOKNewsChannel website…”
So where will it be? The early signs point to FOKNewsChannel.com, which was registered the same day as Olbermann created the @FOKNewsChannel Twitter account.
The site was registered anonymously, using the same registrar that purchased TheKeithOlbrmannShow.com a few days before Olbermann announced his departure from MSNBC.
Still, Olbermann’s tweet raises questions: Will Current TV manage or operate the site? Or will it be independently owned and operated by Olbermann? What sort of content will it have? Will it be aggregated stories about Olbermann, or general political news and commentary?
Finally, will FOX News Channel have anything to say about it? The mock logo Olbermann uses for his Twitter handle very closely resembles the logo of the cable network.
