Former MSNBC Host Ed Schultz Has Died

05 July 2018

Schultz's MSNBC show was canceled in 2015, and in January 2016 he joined RT America, the English-language Russian news channel.

According to WDAY-TV News, he died of natural causes at his home in Washington, DC. But Schultz left MSNBC three years ago as the network reshuffled its programming lineup, ultimately landing at RT America in 2016. In 1992, he made the transition to conservative talk radio.

By the 2000s, Schultz had fully adopted the liberal views that would make him famous.

Up until his death, Schultz hosted the evening news program "News with Ed Schultz" for RT America. 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".

After leaving MSNBC, Schultz signed with RT America to produce "The News with Ed Schultz". It was at the Russian-funded outlet where Schultz's career took a turn. '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'.

This story is developing and we shall update when we find out more information.
