Olbermann to host Current TV prime time program

New York Times
Keith Olbermann‘s one-hour news and commentary show debuts sometime in the spring. He’ll also become Current TV’s chief news officer. “Current is betting on Olbermann to put it on the cable map – and it needs the help,” writes Brian Stelter. “The channel averages just 23,000 viewers in prime time each night.”

    Time Warner does not offer Current TV and when I inquired, as a customer, about it today the customer service representative had never even heard of it.

    This suggests a good story for someone who covers television:
    what channels do our monopoly cable companies not offer, why not and what, if anything will prompt them to add channels like this?
