Ed Schultz Interview: Starting on Armed Forces Radio today

Thanks to The Moderate Voice for this great interview:

...Some consider The Ed Schultz Show the wave of the future. Amid suggestions that conservative talk shows may be getting tired, Schultz's show has been purchased by two major broadcasting executives who were instrumental in developing Limbaugh and Clear Channel, it's now on 105 stations in 9 of the top 10 radio markets (it started on two small stations in January 2004 and within a few months it was on 25 stations) versus Air America's 95 stations, two satellite feeds — and its style differs from both Air America's and conservative talk shows.

ON THE IMPACT OF PROGRESSIVE TALK RADIO

Schultz: Well, I don’t think you can make an impact in less than a year. Let’s be honest about this. You’ve got to have critical mass. If you don’t have critical mass, it’s going to be hard to have an impact. That’s just the radio business.You know, I’m not on the air to make sure somebody gets elected. I’m on the air to do a great radio show. I’m part of a business plan. I’m not part of an election plan. I happen to be a progressive and liberal on many issues — and centrist on quite a few as well....I’m on a mission to do a great radio show and tell the truth.
