On Day 1 of Keith Olbermann’s two-week vacation, a big announcement has come down concerning his MSNBC show.
Countdown’s Executive Producer Izzy Povich is leaving the program to take over as Senior Executive Producer of Lawrence O’Donnell’s soon-to-be-launched 10pmET show.
The announcement came in an MSNBC press release today (the full release is below). Interestingly, there is no replacement yet. “A new Executive Producer of ‘Countdown’ will be named at a later date,” said the release. With Olbermann out two weeks, there’s still some time. O’Donnell is currently filling in as guest host.
