More evidence that Keith Olbermann, formerly with ESPN, Fox, MSNBC and Current TV, is heading back to ESPN, via the New York Daily News:

The Daily News has learned Worldwide Leader is in serious discussions with Olbermann to host a New York-based late night talk show on ESPN 2, according to industry sources.

The sources said the situation is still “very fluid” and no decision on green-lighting Olbermann or the project has been made.

Olbermann worked for ESPN from 1992 and 1997.

In June, ESPN President John Skipper acknowledged a past dinner he had with Olbermann. "I would not have had dinner with him if we didn’t sit around and think about whether there was a reason to bring Keith back," he said. "I haven’t met with him again, but we don’t have a policy here that you can never come back."

Olbermann will co-anchor a three-week baseball post-season Turner Sports show in October.
