Why is the Ed Schultz Show hotter than a polar bear in Pensacola? Easy. Because he is so different from every other talk show hosts. He’s a straight talking, no-nonsense voice of reason in unreasonable times.
Ed has spoken at numerous caucus meetings on Capitol Hill and is one of the most consistent voices for working class Americans. Schultz has been the keynote speaker at union conventions all across the country.
A veteran of 30 years in broadcasting, Schultz has covered some of the biggest events in American history. His gripping live network reports from Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. during the attacks of September 11th 2001 are the stuff of legend. Displaying quick thinking, composure and heart, Ed Schultz captured the moment through the voices of the biggest political names of the day on the spot and in the moment. Schultz also took his show to Gulf Port, Mississippi in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, leading a personal effort to make a difference. He is one of the few broadcasters in the country ever to do a show from Cuba.
Schultz has won three Eric Sevareid Awards and has managed and been lead talent for a broadcast team that has won two Marconis and a prestigious Peabody Award. Ed has been named one of the top ten radio hosts in the country by Talkers Magazine for a number of years. Ed Schultz has been a nominee by Syndicated News/Talk Personality of the year by Radio & Records.
Ed’s book, “Straight Talk from the Heartland,” laid a roadmap for the Progressive wave that’s sweeping America. Penned in 2004 as if he had a crystal ball, Schultz’s words have been proven wise and his predictions uncanny. His latest book is “Killer Politics: How Big Money and Bad Politics Are Destroying the Great American Middle Class.”
