Have you heard about Ed Shultz leaving primetime television on MSNBC? If not, here’s the scoop. On Wednesday, Ed announced to his fans that he will no longer be seen every weeknight on MSNBC.
Instead, you’ll have to lock him in on the weekend to catch his show, very similar to how MSNBC has structured Melissa Harris-Perry’s self-hosted program.
Similar to Perry’s program, which runs Saturdays and Sundays for a combined four hours, “The Ed Show” will do exactly the same.
Now, Ed Schultz will be able to be seen from 5 pm to 7 pm on Saturday and Sunday. And as a result of Ed Schultz leaving primetime TV, Thursday will be his final weekday show.
Ed Schultz has had his own TV show on MSNBC since 2009. He, along with the likes of Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow, has been instrumental in shaping the brand of the network.
It’s not yet known who will replace Ed on the weekdays, although some believe that it may just be Ezra Klein.
