A former CNN anchor will fill in for Keith Olbermann on Current TV’s "Countdown" this week, reports TVNewser.com. Eliot Spitzer will host the show while Olbermann is suffering from bronchitis, according to the report.
Spitzer will handle the network’s Florida primary coverage, marking his first hosting role on TV since he left CNN in July, the piece notes. It’s possible that his gig is meant to test Spitzer for a more long-term role on the network, the story adds.
Olbermann and Current have been battling over Olbermann’s role in covering the 2012 presidential election, as previously reported. Olbermann was notably absent from Current’s recent presentation at the Telvision Critics Association press tour, when he was said to be on vacation, as we reported earlier this month.
