Keith Olbermann (pictured) and MSNBC are going their separate ways ... effective immediately.
MSNBC issued a statement saying they had ended its contract with Olbermann.
Friday January 21 was the last appearance for the liberal firebrand on his MSNBC program Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
Lawrence O'Donnell, who hosts a show on the network at 10:00 PM, will fill Olbermann's 8:00 PM slot beginning Monday.
But can O'Donnell throw papers at the camera? Olbermann was pretty good at it.
