On April 5, the Paley Center in New York brought former ESPN SportsCenter anchors Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann back to mark the 20th Anniversary of The Big Show. On April 5, 1992, Dan and Keith began a joyous era that lasted into the mid-1990′s. Their show transcended sports and became part of popular culture.
On April 5 of this year, Dan and Keith talked with James Andrew Miller, the author of “Those Guys Have All The Fun: Inside The World of ESPN” to discuss their time together.
The Paley Center has posted this 9 minute video of Dan & Keith. Interestingly, it occurred just after Keith was fired from his last job at Current, so there’s a slight jab from Dan about it. I wish the entire video was posted, but I’ll take this.
For a recap of the evening, Anthony Sulla-Heffinger of the New York Post has this synopsis.
David Goetzl of MediaPost says Dan & Keith still have the chemistry after all these years.
Without further delay, here’s the video.
If there’s a longer version of this, I’ll be sure to post it.
