Ed Schultz' Radio Show Ends

"I just don't want to do a three-hour talk show anymore..."

MSNBC host Ed Schultz announced yesterday that his syndicated radio program is coming to an end.  

According to Schultz, the decision to end the daily, three-hour program was his own.  “This change will give me more flexibility to be on the road, to do the kind of shows I want to do here for 'The Ed Show' here on MSNBC,” he said. 

Yeah, ok Ed.  For the record, let's remember what Schultz said when MSNBC canceled his prime time show and moved him to a humiliating weekend slot: 

"I raised my hand for this assignment for a number of personal and professional reasons. I'm very proud of the work our team has done here at 8 p.m., but sitting behind this desk five nights a week doesn't cut it for me."

Of course, nobody bought that story, but so far media outlets are covering this announcement at face value and taking Schultz' word for it.
