Ed Schultz now on TV

Progressive radio talk show host Ed Schultz has received the bump that many feel he deserves, a show on MSNBC.  The show will air for the first time on Monday, April 6.  "The Ed Show" will air weekdays, 6-7 p.m. ET.  Watch video

"I'm excited to have this opportunity with MSNBC," said Schultz. "I look forward to having a day to day discussion with fellow Americans on issues that really matter to all of us."

“The Ed Schultz Show” currently has a weekly radio audience of more than 3 million listeners on over 100 stations across the country.  Ed is known for being somewhat of an exception to the rule.  He has declared a love for red meat and guns, but he is as liberal as any progressive figure.  He is often a champion for the middle class, and says he will continue to fight for the working man(and woman) on his new TV show.

Fox news has a hard time dealing with the fact that progressive media is gaining ground amongst Americans, as over 90% of the current media is conservative.  It is nice to see that progressive radio has a voice in our culture.   Congratulations to Big Eddie, its about time.
