All of the sudden, tonight was his last broadcast.  The NBC folk want you all to believe it had nothing to do with the Comcast takeover, which begins next week.  It’s just coincidence.

“Olbermann did not discuss any future plans, but NBC executives said one term of his settlement will keep him from moving to another network for an extended period of time.”

So no Olbermann anywhere for awhile.  Why did he agree to that?  Maybe he wants some rest.  It does happen.

Josh Marshal was on the early part of the show and didn’t learn about it until he got home.  He said that there was nothing in the studio to give the impression something was up.

Here’s his sign off.

Addendum: Is he returning to sports?  Or maybe a run for Senate?
