24. Schultz announced on his show, I heard it myself. October 17th.
This helps break the Rush Limbaugh death grip on AFRN.

4. Good, this is why Ed Schultz is so valuable
he's palatable to people who don't like Randi, Franken, or Mike Malloy. Yes, he's to the right of ME (and probably most people here) but he reaches a really key audience.

6. He may be to the right of me, but I love him.
He speaks his mind. He's liberal, and he respects the rights of others to speak their minds. That's all you can ask.

5. *uck Limpballs
Just announced by Ed on his show. I can't believe I'm so effected by this, but my husband was Army and it always hurt my feelings how the military felt about democrats and the misinformation they are feed by the right.

I still can't tell, but good for him.

13. This is terrific news!!!
I really like Ed. I know he's not everyone's cup of tea, and maybe he seems too centrist for some here, but he's almost a Green compared to Al Franken, and he speaks common sense in language that ANYONE can understand. He's also been catching the talk radio world on fire, with more stations adding him every week as long as I've been listening to him.

He's been a HUGE supporter of Cindy Sheehan, and he had her on his program almost every day for a long time.

This guy's really gonna connect with former Limbaugh fans tired of that nut's drooling Oxycontin ravings. He's gonna knock 'em over, just you wait and see.

15. That's great news, I've never listened to him but I understand he's a
perfect foil for Rush, even looks and sounds like him but will get a democratic message out there.

Thank you, the troops deserve the truth and they don't get it from their steady stream of Rush propaganda.

18. Great News - he'll connect with a lot of troops IMO
He talks like an ordinary guy - and I think that he sounds like Limpballs is going to be an advantage. He extols small-town values and lays it on the line how Bush and his cronies are not good for rural America (and a lot of troops come from rural America). He can talk football, car racing, fishing, hunting, etc.

And he has a lot of Dems on - I think when troops hear these Dem pols actually speak what they say will connect.

Fantastic news!

21. He DOESN'T look like Rush, and he doesn't sound like him to me anymore
for one thing, he actually understands football, unlike Limbaugh's imbecilic droolings on ESPN.

31. Right: Big Eddie actually understands and can talk football
I enjoy Ed's commentary about the game. He obviously played football for a long time and understands it. Limpba11s doesn't even have a clue.

But I don't think Ed is really middle-of-the-road. He really does sound (and comes off as) pro-workin'-class-dog.

19. I wrote to AFN some time ago...
When I was in Okinawa, we were subjected to limpballs and it irritated me to no end. When I wrote them about dumping that fucker and getting something at least SLIGHTLY more moderate, they were very polite in their reply. They basically said they play a numbers game. Whatever has the high ratings, gets on the air. Obviously one of two things has happened since then...either the numbers have changed or their policies have changed.

41. Wow
I hope it's because his ratings are good.

Ed's not my cup of tea, but I recognize that he'd get a whole, huge audience, so I'm all for him. Not only will he spread the truth, but he has lots of good guests who'll be heard -- finally -- by our military.

Ed's site and the AFN site and see nothing.

Please--where'd you hear/see this?

Pretty sure it is in response to Harkin's Fairness Amendment.

ED!! He was talking for quite awhile about the success the show has had in the two years since it began. Over a hundred stations. He wanted to thank all of his listeners and then he said he had a special announcement and he just said it. Armed Forces Radio will get an opposing viewpoint to "Slant Head" starting Oct. 17th Ed Shultz will be carried on Armed Forces Radio.
Trust me, I was surprised to hear it, but I did hear it!! And I screamed!!

I listen to him on my drive home but miss about the last 20-30 minutes of his show.

55. this is excellent news
living abroad, Armed Forces Radio is listened to by a lot of expats, some locals as well as the U.S. military of course. For the last few years the evening talk show line-up has been Rush, followed by Dr. Laura -- in the morning there is Paul Harvey follwed by Richard Dobson with "Focus on the Family". This will make for a wonderful change.

58. This will piss off Randi, no doubt.
But since AAR left Sirius, I haven't listened to a single archived show. (I'm in Nashville, where there is no affiliate and probably won't be, despite the fact that Davidson County voted for Kerry.)
