Shultz, who was most famous for hosting The Ed Show on MSNBC from 2009 to 2015, drew his last breath on Thursday, June 5, 2018. It is believed that he died of natural causes.

The news of Shultz's passing was shared by RT America, where the late 64-year-old worked since 2016 following the abrupt cancellation of The Ed Show.

Edward Andrew Shultz was born in Virginia and went on to play football at Minnesota State University Moorhead. After his success in Division II in 1977, the Oakland Raiders signed him as a free agent.

Shultz stuck with the team through summer mini camps before ending up in the Canadian Football League, which led him to get an invitation to try his luck with the New York Jets.

Unfortunately, Shultz didn't leave a good impression and decided to shift his attention to the media industry. In 2011, during an interview with Media Beat, the late host revealed that he was given the opportunity to do a morning sports show in college and that he took it.

According to Shultz, whenever he tried something new, he always wanted to be 'the best employee in the building,' and his attitude and charisma led him to have a prestigious career,

He started by covering sports in the Fargo-Moorhead market and made a career as a conservative talk radio commentator in the 90s, but he eventually changed his views. He once told the Los Angeles Times that he considered himself a 'gun-toting, meat-eating leftie.'

His show on MSNBC was quite successful, but the network's president, Phil Griffin, believe that it needed a fresh new look, which resulted in more breaking news coverage replacing Shutlz's daytime show.
