The latest snowglobe-like shakeup at NBC News has seen, among other replacements, the acquisition -- and nearly immediate dismissal -- of Keith's erstwhile exec producer and 'Olbermann' show developer Jamie Horowitz
Mr. Horowitz began his new stint at NBC last September but was bounced after only 3 months with the network, NBC paying off almost all of the remainder of his contract to effect his departure. The details of his experiences there are sketchy; reportedly the radical redesign he envisioned for the Today
show (the mission for which he was offered over $3-million if he could break his contract with ESPN) was too much for his boss, Deborah Turness, at that time the president of NBC News.
In a surprising turn of events, Ms Turness was then given HER walking papers!
As Dorothy remarked in the Wizard of Oz
, "Goodness! People come and go so QUICKLY here!"
Horowitz's next move is unknown. He is said to be exploring opportunities, including an executive position w/ Fox Sports. Personally, I think it would be good if Keith made a way for him to come back home to 'Olbermann.'
