MSNBC... with added Ed

Looks like we were all thrown for a loop. MSNBC is indeed creating a new show around Ed Schultz... only in an earlier time slot.

From the New York Times:

MSNBC will soon add another liberal radio host, the latest in a series of changes intended to position the network as a venue for left-leaning voices in the evening.

Ed Schultz, a radio veteran with a blue-state appeal, will anchor the 6 p.m. hour, to be called “The Ed Show,” starting Monday, MSNBC, a unit of NBC Universal, announced Wednesday night.


Mr. Schultz said his show would take a “hard-hitting approach to issues,” with a “folksy style when it’s called for.”


The network said David Shuster, the current anchor of the 6 p.m. hour, would co-host the 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. hours with Tamron Hall and substitute as host of “Countdown With Keith Olbermann,” its top-rated program.

And it appears that Schultz will have a little extra time on his hands for the MSNBC gig, as he will no longer do a local show, "News And Views", for his Fargo flagship, KFGO.
