MSNBC has cancelled it’s highest rated show, Countdown With Keith Olbermann. According to The Wall Street Journal:
MSNBC and Mr. Olbermann have been discussing parting ways for some time, according to a person familiar with the matter. That person said they ultimately came to a financial agreement to end his contract two years early. The host signed a four-year deal worth $30 million in 2008.
Neither side offered an explanation for their split.
Olbermann made no mention of what he will do next. You can watch his final sign-off below.
