Olbermann, Patrick reunite for ‘SportsCenter’ 20th anniversary panel

Alex Werpin reports, “It was 20 years ago that sports television changed forever. ESPN’s ‘SportsCenter’ debuted the anchoring duo of Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick, and ‘The Big Show’ was born. Now, The Paley Center is reuniting them (again) for a 20th anniversary retrospective.

Moderated by Jim Miller, who co-wrote the recent ESPN book Those Guys Have All the Fun, the panel will be held April 5 at the Paley Center in New York.

Patrick still covers sports on radio, television and in print, while Olbermann spends much of his time hosting his politically-focused “Countdown” on Current TV. Olbermann also has a baseball blog on MLB.com. The pair ere reunited on NBC’s “Football Night in America” a few years ago, though as Olbermann left NBC, so did the reunion.”
