WASHINGTON — Longtime broadcaster Ed Schultz died Thursday at the age of 64, RT America announced in a statement Thursday.

“We are devastated by the news of the sudden death of our brilliant anchor, one of the best TV journalists in America, Ed Schultz,” RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said.

Schultz hosted a program on the Russian-sponsored cable network from 2016 to 2018.

Prior to joining RT, Schultz was perhaps best remembered for his six-year tenure hosting “The Ed Show” on MSNBC.

In recent years, Schultz was a well-known progressive media personality, going so far as to act as a surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential run.

He had previously identified himself as a conservative while hosting local radio programs in Fargo, North Dakota.

A cause of death has not been publicly disclosed.
