  • Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz dies

According to WDAY, Schultz's death was a result of natural causes. But Schultz left MSNBC three years ago as the network reshuffled its programming lineup, ultimately landing at RT America in 2016.

The following year, he debuted on Kremlin-funded RT America, hosting the half hour News With Ed Schultz.

Schultz, a graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead, launched his career as a sports broadcaster for Fargo-Moorhead television stations in the early 1980s. He had a change of heart in the 2000s and moved on to host a commentary show for MSNBC, "The Ed Show", in 2009 until mid-2015 when he was let go for soft ratings.


Schultz's political views shifted in 2000, at which point he began identifying as a Democrat. He often courted controversy and was suspended for a week by MSNBC in 2011 for comments on his radio show in which he called Laura Ingraham a "right-wing slut". A statement from RT later clarified he passed away at his home in Washington, D.C. This has been corrected.

We at RT America are sad to announce the passing of Edward Andrew Schultz.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
