Keith Olbermann To Guest-Host On MLB Network

Former MSNBC and Current TV host Keith Olbermann is returning to the host’s chair, this time on MLB Network.

Olbermann will be a guest-host on MLB Network’s “Hot Stove” next Tuesday and Wednesday, from 9-11 AM ET. Olbermann phoned into the program this morning to talk about the MLB MVP races with Harold Reynolds and Matt Vasgersian, and to preview next week’s shows. He was in-studio yesterday as part of a panel discussion on the American League MVP.

Olbermann will be joined by MLB Network’s Brian Kenny next week.

Olbermann is a huge sports fan, and a former contributor to Fox Sports and NBC’s NFL pregame show. He was also of course part of “The Big Show” with Dan Patrick, that helped turn ESPN’s “SportsCenter” into the juggernaut it is. He currently writes the “Baseball Nerd” blog for MLB.com.
