    "We at RT America are sad to announce the passing of Edward Andrew Schultz. 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,"
    said the channel's official statement.

    Ed worked for decades as a prominent sports and political radio commentator and personality in the upper Midwest. After several years as one of the most watched anchormen on MSNBC Ed moved to RT America in January of 2016. The News with Ed Schultz”aired weeknights from Monday – Thursday at 8 PM Eastern Time. Ed’s broadcast was the flagship show at RT.

    The respect that Ed commanded among viewers and among his colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic is impossible to overstate. He was an unconditional patriot of his country, an honest and principled man.

    "When the campaign against RT America began and the was forced to register as a foreign agent, Ed set an example for all of us, saying: “Let them call me what they want, I am going to speak the truth no matter what,” Simonyan added.

    I wondered why you didn't see him as much lately. When he went to RT he was actually willing to call out Hillary and them on their crooked stuff despite his lefty beliefs.

    Our local news talk radio somehow years ago got his show put on for the afternoon time slot even though we are a very red area and people were going crazy about it. They were locked into a contract and he was on for like 9 months or so before it got switched out and the ratings went to nothing. I am sure the manager who made that call probably got canned.

    If anyone knows how to contact him they might want to do a “wellness check”.

      Bammer is beyond grief. He has asked to be named the Official Bearer of the Funerary Plate of the Chosen Dead.

        Ed was one of the best. The last Walter Cronkite. There won't be another like him.

        I miss doing my "Tonight on The Ed Show" threads. Everyone really seemed to enjoy them and find them rather informative.

        We will miss you and your wit, Ed. You were always a class act. "Take that, GOP."

          And now, a CNN panel on how Trump caused Ed to have a coronary.
