Keith Olbermann Net Worth: Keith Olbermann is an American sports and political commentator and writer who has a net worth of $25 million. Keith Olbermann was born January 27, 1959 in New York City, New York. As of 2013 he hosts a late-night show on ESPN2 called Olbermann, as well as being the studio host of TBS's baseball postseason coverage. From 1992 to 1997, Olbermann co-hosted ESPN's SportsCenter. During his years as a sportscaster, he also hosted MSNBC's White House in Crisis and The Big Show. 2001 to 2003, Olbermann was a CNN correspondent on News Night. In 2003, he was made host of his own MSNBC nightly news program, Countdown with Keith Olbermann. On March 30, 2012 Olbermann was fired for an alleged breach of contract. Olbermann and political talk show host Bill O'Reilly have carried on a feud for years. The feud between the anchors originated with Olbermann's extensive coverage of a 2004 sexual harassment suit brought against Bill O'Reilly by former Fox News Channel producer Andrea Mackris, during which Olbermann asked Countdown viewers to fund the purchase of lurid audio tapes allegedly held by Mackris. In 2008, O'Reilly decided he would avoid mentioning Olbermann's name on the air, and once cut off a caller who mentioned Olbermann. O'Reilly has also criticized MSNBC's news commentary and political coverage without ever specifically mentioning Olbermann. The rivalry continued when in 2006, at Television Critics' Association in California, Olbermann donned a mask of O'Reilly and made a Nazi salute, leading to a letter of protest from the Anti-Defamation League. In an article on "perhaps the fiercest media feud of the decade", New York Times' Brian Stelter noted that in early June 2009 the "combat" between the two hosts seemed to have abruptly ended due to instructions filtered down to Olbermann and O'Reilly from the chief executives of their respective networks. Over the course of his broadcasting career, Olbermann has received a number of prestigious awards for his work in both television and radio, including 11 Golden Mike Awards and an Edward R. Murrow award for his coverage of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
