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.
Ten and a half years of syndicated radio and it's time for a change. I have other things I want to do..I have a lot of years left at MSNBC.— Ed Schultz (@WeGotEd) May 21, 2014
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.
