"He didn't burn bridges here, he napalmed them."
That quote from an ESPN spokesman described Keith Olbermann's departure from the Worldwide Leader. From 1992 until 1997, Olbermann's time at ESPN was memorable for launching two platforms, Radio and the Deuce, co-hosting the 11 p.m. ET SportsCenter with Dan Patrick and plenty of funny "This is SportsCenter" promos. But that time was also known for many internal battles between Olbermann and management as described in two tomes, "Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN" co-authored by James Andrew Miller and Thomas Shales, "ESPN: The Uncensored History" by Mike Freeman, and by Dan Patrick on his syndicated radio show.no comments
