Radio talk show host Ed Shultz to broadcast from KTCU

Progressive radio talk show host Ed Schultz will broadcast his daytime show, “The Ed Schultz Show,” from KTCU FM 88.7 “The Choice” on Friday.

Schultz is nationally syndicated through more than 100 affiliates, including satellite radio, and has a television show on MSNBC.

With more than 30 years of experience in broadcasting, Schultz is described as a “straight talking, no-nonsense voice of reason in unreasonable times,” on his show’s official Web site.

Russell Scott, KTCU director, said Schultz’s son David, a 2006 alumnus and professional golfer on the PGA’s Nationwide Tour, lives in the Fort Worth area. Last year, Schultz broadcasted his show from KTCU for about three days when he was in town to visit his son, Scott said.

“He was thoroughly impressed with the studios and the facilities, and it went off without a hitch,” Scott said.

Students will not be involved with the production of the broadcast because Schultz will only be using studio space and not broadcasting on KTCU.

David Crouch, a senior film-TV-digital media major, said he was looking forward to Schultz broadcasting from the studios.

“I remember when he was here last year,” Crouch said. “It’s a pretty big deal to have a nationally syndicated program being broadcast from TCU.”

The 3-hour broadcast from KTCU’s studios can be heard on his official Web site, www.bigeddieradio.com.
