MSNBC removing Ed Schultz from prime time

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Heartland liberal Ed Schultz is losing his prime-time show on MSNBC.

The cable network says Schultz is being moved to the weekends, to host two-hour shows Saturday and Sunday at 5 p.m. EDT. Union advocate Schultz, whose nightly show preceded Rachel Maddow, has increasingly seemed out of place in MSNBC's bookishly liberal lineup.

Schultz will be replaced weeknights by Chris Hayes, whose talk show, "Up," has been a weekend morning mainstay on the MSNBC schedule since 2011. It begins April 1.

Schultz said on his show Wednesday that his new time slot gives him the chance to "get out with the people and tell their stories."
