MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” is leaving its 8 PM timeslot startung in April, Ed Schultz announced at the end of his program this evening. Schultz will be taking his program to the weekend, where it will air from 5-7 PM…

Rumors of Shultz’s departure from 8 PM kicked up last November, when Brian Stelter reported that Schultz would be leaving, and Ezra Klein was the leading candidate to replace him. MSNBC pushed back against the story, saying “there are no changes planned.” The changes may not have been planned, but it certainly seems as though they were in the works.
