NEW YORK — Keith Olbermann and Current TV say they’ve settled their dispute nearly a year after Olbermann was fired by the network and responded with a $50 million lawsuit.

Both parties said in a statement Wednesday that the terms of the settlement are confidential.

Olbermann was fired last March as a host and executive at the left-leaning cable talk network.

Olbermann sued, claiming Current violated his agreement and engaged in shoddy production values. Current’s countersuit accused him of breaching his contract, including taking vacation without notice.
