A Former Vice President Will Host A Cable News Channel’s Convention Coverage

Current TV just announced that one of its co-founders, former Vice President Al Gore, will lead Current TV’s coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

Gore will be joined by former Michigan Governor and “The War Room” host, Jennifer Granholm, former New York Governor and “Viewpoint” host, Eliot Spitzer and “The Young Turks” host, Cenk Uygur. California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom will join the panel for the RNC coverage.

Also, David Shuster and Michael Shure will report from both conventions and new Current TV hosts Joy Behar and John Fugelsang will contribute.

“I’m pleased to be participating in Current TV’s impressive line-up throughout the Republican and Democratic National Conventions,” said Gore. “Cenk, Jennifer and Eliot provide the keen insight and spot-on analysis our viewers have come to expect. I have no doubt that our coverage will be innovative and informative, and I look forward to working with them.”

Keith Olbermann‘s available, why didn’t they just…. oh right.
