TV and radio personality Ed Schultz has a lot to be jovial about, with a net worth of approximately $11.5 million. But how did this net worth come to be? His broadcasting career began in Fargo, North Dakota, as a sportscaster for KTHI and WDAY. It was during this period that the "whiskey bottle incident" in which he almost got into a physical confrontation with a fan who hurled a whiskey bottle at him took place. From there, Schultz made the transition into talk radio, where his folksy on-air demeanor belied his surprisingly progressive political point of view. This point of view also makes him a natural fit for MSNBC's prime time line-up, on which The Ed Show continues to appear today. Schultz wasn't always the left-wing progressive we know today – he actually started as a conservative republican before changing his views sometime during the Bush presidency. His broadcasting career has predictably had its share of controversy – he recently took a week of "unpaid leave" from his MSNBC show after making allegedly sexist comments about conservative commentator Laura Ingraham. No matter what, Schultz's no nonsense attitude will continue to earn him fans and detractors in the years to come.
