Joel Hyatt, executive vice chairman of Current, told the Huffington Post he would like to see a second news show on the air early next year to bookend Keith Olbermann's "Countdown."
"We have a chance to play a significant role in election coverage," Hyatt said.
The Los Angeles Times said Olbermann this week pitched the idea of luring former colleague Rachel Maddow to Current once her contract with MSNBC expires.
One of Olbermann's contributors, Markos Moulitsas, told the Huffington Post that reuniting Maddow and Olbermann would turn Current into a voice independent of corporate ownership.
