Posted by at 2:40 pm on July 5, 2018

Longtime broadcaster/MSNBC host Ed Schultz died this morning of natural causes. RT America, where Schultz was working at the time of his death, issued a statement:

“We at RT America are sad to announce the passing of Edward Andrew Schultz,” the network said. “Ed Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. This announcement comes as a shock to all of us here at RT America.”

Schultz got his start as a sports broadcaster for Fargo-Moorhead television stations in the early 1980s, including time as sports director at WDAY-TV, which first reported news of his death.

He moved to talk radio as a conservative in the 1990s. His radio show went national in 2004. He became a national figure, however, when he joined MSNBC in 2009 as a progressive. During his tenure there, he hosted The Ed Show weekday afternoons, while also becoming a primetime fixture.
