Ed Schultz Gets MSNBC Program of His Own

Thursday, April 2, 2009


Talk Radio host Ed Schultz has landed his own show on MSNBC.

Speculation swirled about Schultz — a bombastic, progressive talker, joining the MSNBC lineup after network president Phil Griffin said he was looking for another liberal voice to complement the hugely popular combination of Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow.

The Ed Show will debut this Monday in the 6PM, the timeslot currently occupied by 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, hosted by David Shuster. Shuster will now host a two-hour afternoon show beginning at 3PM, along with chatterbox Tamron Hall. Norah O’Donnell, who currently hosts the 3PM hour is expected to move to a morning timeslot.

MSNBC is now the number two nighttime cable network bumping the awful  CNN to third place.

    Schultz is an excellent fit for MSNBC.

    I hope the network continues to catch up to FOX and one day knocks them out of first place in the night time ratings.

    With Big Eddie on board, the Cheerleaders’ Neutered Network should slip further.

    When CNN decided to put reprehensible scum like Herr Beck into their lineup, they claimed the title of “Faux FOX” for themselves, and now they’re getting what they deserve.

    Compassion, intelligence and decency are popular again? I’ll have to start drinking a less gassy beer.

    Here’s some compassionate, intelligent, decent bloggers who could use some financial support, if you still have a job and you’re not homeless or bankrupt. Or Republican.

    I listen to Big Ed everyday. We get him from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. here in Minneapolis.

    I love it when he goes toe-to-toe with right-wing Republicans. And I love the fact that he’s a staunch supporter of unions.

  5. Rachel says:

    Eddie is OK. He’s the liberal Limbaugh.

  6. Jim says:

    Great news indeed! Now if MSNBC would just line up some weekend, full-time programming.

  7. JollyRoger says:

    Eddie isn’t a liberal Limbaugh. That guy is as real as it gets.

    I despise Ed Schultz. When WWOR replaced Tom Hartman with that infantile idiot, I found something else to listen to.

    I am still hoping Sam Seder will replace Tweety eventually.
