Keith Olbermann

KEITH OLBERMANN's first book "The Major League Coaches" was published when he was 14 years old, and a copy has remained in the Baseball Hall of Fame Library ever since. His sixth work, "Trump Is F*cking Crazy" is based on his online political commentary series "The Resistance" for GQ.Com, which at the time of the book's publication had exceeded 355,000,000 views. He became a nationally-broadcast radio sports reporter for United Press International in 1979, joined CNN as its national sports correspondent in its second year, and went on to ESPN for three separate full-time stints including one as the co-anchor of the seminal edition of SportsCenter and founding host of ESPN2 and ESPN Radio. He joined NBC News in 1997 for the first of two tenures there, and over the following 13 years anchored nightly news programs such as "The Big Show," "The White House In Crisis," and "Countdown" as well as a Democratic presidential debate, the elections of 2006, 2008, and 2010, the presidential inauguration of 2009, and all of MSNBC's breaking news coverage. Working simultaneously for NBC Sports, he hosted the Super Bowl pre-game and anchored Sunday Night Football and the World Series (one of three networks for whom he hosted baseball post-season coverage). He has written for dozens of publications and sites ranging from The New York Times to Sports Illustrated to BBC.Com, and is the winner of three Edward R. Murrow Awards for excellence in news coverage, a Cable Ace Award for sports, and 11 Golden Mikes.
