Keith OlbermannSince give the axe at MSNBC after feuding with the network, we haven’t heard much from Keith Olbermann unless you’ve watched him argue with people insulting him on Twitter.But it seems Olbermann will be returning to some familiar turf, at sports network ESPN.

Olbermann is returning to the network he once worked at from 1992 to 1997 before making the jump to news anchoring. Now, he’s heading back to the network for a new show called, what else, “Olbermann.”

“Apart from the opportunity to try to create a nightly hour of sports television that no fan can afford to miss,” Olbermann said in a news release, “I’m overwhelmed by the chance to begin anew with ESPN. I’ve been gone for 16 years and not one day in that time has passed without someone connecting me to the network. Our histories are indelibly intertwined and frankly I have long wished that I had the chance to make sure the totality of that story would be a completely positive one. I’m grateful to friends and bosses — old and new — who have permitted that opportunity to come to pass. I’m not going to waste it.”

Olbermann will air at 11 PM on weeknights on ESPN2, and his show will be a mix of insight, commentary and highlights, like everything else on ESPN.
