12-21-07 NBC News prez recognizes KO

Postby Marie » Fri Dec 21, 2007 5:35 pm

In a note to staff, Steve Capus, president of NBC News, singles out Keith as "a big reason" for MSNBC's rapid growth in the past year.

TVNewser notes, "Interestingly, Olbermann is the only person mentioned by name in the 1,077 word letter."

Here's the relevant excerpt:

AT MSNBC, the story just keeps getting better. MSNBC will finish 2007 as the fastest-growing fully distributed cable channel... that's not just news, but ALL of cable. And a big reason why: Countdown with Keith Olbermann. MSNBC is up 32% in primetime for the year, and Countdown, which beat CNN in the 8 p.m. hour for the year, is up 55% over last year. There have been significant gains in almost every daypart at MSNBC - this is a remarkable achievement in one of the most competitive arenas in all of television.

Of course, we made a huge investment in NBC News this year when we brought MSNBC here to 30 Rock. It truly went off without a hitch. Walking through the newsrooms on the 3rd and 4th floors, and into the studios, one thing is clear - this is finally the world-class operation it deserves to be. One news operation feeding many outlets.

Oh, the haters will probably come up with something like, "George Sorros gave NBC millions of dollars and suggested to Capus that praising Olbermann would be a good idea." Throw in a few jabs about the liberal MSM, hating the troops, and wanting to lose in Iraq. Somehow they will manage to connect the dots and blame it on Olbermann. Man, they sure give him a lot of power. Hee!
