Former MSNBC Host Ed Schultz Dies At 64

Former MSNBC host and longtime broadcaster Ed Schultz has died at the age of 64.

After leaving MSNBC, Schultz anchored "The News With Ed Schultz" on RT America, a talk show that aired Monday through Thursday on the Russia-owned network.

From 2009 to 2015, Schultz hosted "The Ed Show" on MSNBC - for which he was best known - before starting his RT America spot in 2016.

RT reported that Schultz died early Thursday morning at his home in Washington.

His politics began to shift, however, and in 2000, Schultz officially became a Democrat. He transitioned into political commentary in the '90s with a number of regional radio broadcasts in the Midwest. He was an unconditional patriot of his country, an honest man without compromise. "He was tough on a lot of young journalists in RT America's newsroom; he was a mentor to a few", said RT America News Director Mikhail Solodovnikov.

In 2017, RT America was required to register as a foreign agent. It was at the Russian-funded outlet where Schultz's career took a turn.

"I could have retired".

A former collegiate football star, Schultz got his start in sports broadcasting for a variety of North Dakota radio stations, including doing play-by-play for University of North Dakota and University of North Dakota State football games. That's not Ed Schultz; I'm not ready to do that. I have a lot of desire.
