From The FOK News Channel, we have a date for the premier of Keith Olbermann's new show on Current TV.

OLBERMANN: I wanted to go somewhere that I could expand on and enlarge upon the work I'd already done, a place where journalistic integrity and analytical honesty would never be compromised by corporate synergy; a place where no one would ever proclaim the ultimate dishonesty, that balancing a lie for every truth was somehow fair. I found that place in Current TV and even though they told me I'd be in charge and they gave me a title and an equity stake and a pony, I still have been delightfully startled at the free hand I've been given to assemble the finest staff, on air and off in television news, details about which we will give you in the coming weeks. And now I can tell you, we are ready to go.

Keith's new show will air live at 8pm Eastern, Monday, June 20th, 2011 on Current TV and reair at 11pm and 2am Eastern time as well. The news hour will keep the same name as his former show at MSNBC, Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
