CurrentTV Takes Out Full Page New York Times Ad

There’s a full page ad for CurrentTV on B5 of the Business section of today’s New York Times. It’s what’s missing that interesting.

While the ad features pictures of hosts Cenk Uygur and Jennifer Granholm, there’s no image of Keith Olbermann, whose show “Countdown” is the network’s longest-running — since June — and most-watched live talk show since the network reinvented itself last year. Olbermann’s name, however, is at the top of the bill, at the bottom of the ad. Granholm’s show “The War Room” debuts tonight. Uygur’s “The Young Turks” has been on the air since Dec. 5.

We’ve also learned Olbermann will not be leading CurrentTV’s Florida primary coverage tomorrow night as he is recovering from bronchitis. While skipping Iowa and New Hampshire, Olbermann anchored Current’s South Carolina primary coverage Jan. 21.
