ED SCHULTZ has found a new TV home after his cancellation in 2014 by MSNBC: SCHULTZ will host "NEWS WITH ED SCHULTZ" at 8p (ET) weeknights on Russian government-funded cable network RT AMERICA, starting JANUARY 25th.
“ED SCHULTZ is one of the best-known and well-respected progressive commentators in America,” said RT Editor-in-Chief MARGARITA SIMONYAN. “With ED helming a show, we are continuing the tradition of collaborating with top international journalistic talent that engages our audience by providing in-depth coverage, analysis and commentary on important but underreported issues to millions of US viewers.”
“I am very excited to be joining RT,” said SCHULTZ. “The network is firmly established outside of US corporate media and is not afraid to give a platform to diverse voices, stories and perspectives to its viewers, even if it ruffles some mainstream feathers. I can’t think of a better fit than a news broadcaster that bullishly pursues issues that matter to hardworking Americans.”
SCHULTZ, formerly syndicated to radio stations through 2014, now hosts a daily podcast.
