Ed Schultz, MSNBC Broadcaster And Radio Personality, Dead At 64

Schultz got his start in media as a sportscaster in Fargo, North Dakota, in the 1980s. At one point, The Ed Schultz Show was syndicated to almost 100 affiliates, and in 2008 he was ranked No. 17 nationally by Talkers magazine, reaching a weekly audience of more than 3 million listeners.

Veteran broadcaster and television/radio host Ed Shultz has died at the age of 64 of natural causes.

After leaving MSNBC in 2015, Schultz hosted a radio show on RT America, which released a statement about his death. As he became a self-identified "lefty", Schultz appealed to liberals who identified with the plight of the working class and the decline of American trade unions. He eventually moved to talk radio, including WDAY radio, dominating the local airwaves as a conservative firebrand in the 1990s. He built a radio show following that led to syndication with the Jones Radio Network and Dial Global, later being hired by MSNBC in 2009.

"We are devastated by the news of the sudden death of our brilliant anchor, one of the best TV journalists in America, Ed Schultz", RT Editor in Chief Margarita Simonyan said in a statement.

Warren Smacks Trump Back Over DNA Test

Schultz is a graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead, where as a football quarterback he was named an All-American.

He is survived by his wife, Wendy, and his six children.
