Silver, a number-cruncher who rose to fame by projecting the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, will likely be a contributor to Keith Olbermann's forthcoming ESPN2 latenight talkshow "Olbermann," according to a report from Brian Stelter of The New York Times.
Along with working with ESPN's portfolio of properties, Silver is also expected to contribute to ABC during political years. ABC, like ESPN, is owned by Disney.
ESPN declined comment Friday night.
