Al Gore: Keith Olbermann committed to Current TV

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Former Vice President Al Gore says Keith Olbermann remains committed to Current TV, despite his recent absence from political coverage.

Gore said Friday that Olbermann is "fine." Gore is the chairman of the left-leaning political TV network.

He is in Pasadena to promote Current's prime-time lineup that, starting this month, is including former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

Olbermann is Current's most popular personality. He didn't participate in Iowa and New Hampshire political coverage, reportedly because he was upset over production problems at the network.

Gore says he's been having fun as a Current commentator on political nights but doesn't want his own show.
