To begin with, Schultz grew up in the family of an engineer and a teacher in Larchmont. In 1972, he matriculated from Maury High School in Norfolk, and went as a football player on an athletic scholarship to Minnesota State University, Moorhead, being selected an All-American, and after graduation signing for the Okland Raiders in the NFL. However, after several years subsequently playing as a professional football player for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, in the early ’70s Schultz began working as a sports reporter for two local stations in Fargo, North Dakota. In 1996, Schultz signed to the transmitter KFGP in Fargo, for which he commentated football games for several years. His net worth was noe rising.

Meantime, Schultz had been close to the Republicans, and had even pulled a candidacy for Congress as a Republican candidate in 1994. Afterwards, he loosened his association with the Republicans and approached the Democrats, and since 2000, he has a member of the Democratic Party.

In 2005, he expanded his activities and alongside being a sports presenter he went on to facilitate his own political radio show “The Ed Schultz Show” (2005 – 2014). With over three million listeners per week, the show became the most listened-to talk show radio broadcast in the USA, meanwhile committing himself to the American trade union movement. In 2009, Schultz was hired by the cable news channel MSNBC as a moderator, and the same year the stations began to broadcast a one-hour program on weekdays “The Ed Show”, the political agenda commented on and analyzed by Schultz from his personal observatory. At the beginning of 2012, the program averaged over 1.3 million listeners, but in 2015 the show was cancelled. Since early 2016, Schultz has presented the political program “News with Ed Schultz” aired on RT America.

In addition to his broadcasting, Ed Schultz is the author of two books – “Straight Talk from the Heartland: Tough Talk, Common Sense, and Hope from a Former Conservative” (2004) and “Killer Politics: How Big Money and Bad Politics Are Destroying the Great American Middle Class” (2010), which have added to his wealth.
