Keith announces start date for new show will be June 20 2011

Keith Olbermann Plans New FOKNewsChannel Website
By Alex Weprin
WebNewser
February 22, 2011

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.

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.

At least they have google rankings.

He says his show will have a strong online presence by virtue of Current's online presence. From that, I understand him to be hinting at a major overhaul of Current's website -- which may be taking place as we write!

In the meantime he can have some fun with this. :-)

I happily republish this homage to Keith, found on Huff-Po -- :pat
PROUD TO BE A FOKKER
By booksnstuff
Sung in tune of "Proud To Be An American" by Lee Greenwood:
(caps added by me, of course)

If tomorrow all the NEWS CHANNELS were gone,
I’d WATCHED all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my SMART PHONE and my LIFE

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause KEITH OLBERMAN still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be a FOKKER,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the MAN who FOUGHT,
AGAINST THE WILES OF MSNBC.

And HE PROUDLY STOOD up,
TO FIGHT FOR US FOR THE TRUTH IN NEWS today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt HE LOVES this land,
God bless KEITH OLBERMANN.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in FOKKER'S heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I’m proud to be A FOKKER,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the MAN who REFUSED,
TO BOW TO MSNBC.

And HE gladly STOOD up,
TO EXPOSE THE TRUTH AND ERROR IN NEWS today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt HE LOVES this land,
God bless KEITH OLBERMANN.

Love ya, Keith! Can't wait to see and hear you again!

WOOT!

I'll be happy to help him keep things in order if it gets a forum.
For free just to be able to say "I am helping Keith Olbermann"
I'll donate some of my time to him happily!

[-o< PLEASE let there be video podcasts of his show! I'll even tolerate advertisements. It will be the only way I will be able to get his new show.

When it concerns KO, nothing can happen quick enough for me/us. I too hope that his website begins soon. It will at least provide the important issues currently on KO's mind for that day. =D>

Olbermann’s FOKNewsChannel to go live tonight

Late on Friday afternoon, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann tweeted that his online "FOKNewsChannel" would begin operations tonight.

Around 3 PM EST, Olbermann posted, "Bulletin: FOKNewsChannel site, humble and presumably bug-ridden though it may be, goes live tonight. Puhhhhhhrobably. #FOK"

As of 5 PM, there was still a placeholder page at http://www.foknewschannel.com. However, a series of further tweets pasted to http://twitter.com/FOKNewsChannel had added additional details of the intended offerings.

"We will begin FOKNewsChannel with 3 staples," Olbermann explained. "'The First Guess' will be my column of commentary and analysis. ... The site will also bring you "Snappy Answers To Stupid Headlines" which will be a frequently-updated snark repository. ... And then something experimental and atypical... "'The Worst Persons Of The Day.'"

"Don't be expecting too much of my technical expertise here," he cautioned. "Remember, I started my career on manual typewriters."
