Keith Olbermann Announces His Show is Moving to Afternoons in September

Keith Olbermann’s show celebrated its one-year anniversary Tuesday night on ESPN2. Olbermann used the occasion to announce a major change — starting on Sept. 8 the show will move from late nights to afternoons airing on ESPN2 at 5 p.m.

This move seems to make a lot of sense. I’ve actually spent a lot of time watching Olbermann instead of late-night Seinfeld reruns ever since he named me the Third-Worst Person in the World in January. A tight show focused around the opening essay, the day’s news, Worsts and the occasional highlight should work earlier in the day.

Afternoons on ESPN2 will have a decidedly old-school ESPN vibe to them, with a Bob Ley-hosted Outside the Lines slotted for 5:30.

Olbermann also wrote on Twitter that he’s going to do the occasional SportsCenter.
