Ed Schultz eyes a return to the NDSU football booth


Fargo’s foremost sportscaster turned pundit wants to return to the press box.
By: Dave Roepke, INFORUM

Fargo’s foremost sportscaster turned pundit wants to return to the press box.

Ed Schultz, the liberal political talk-show host, is eyeing the job he held for 13 years before he made the jump from WDAY television to radio in 1996: calling North Dakota State University football games.

“Would I do the Bison? You’re damn right I would. Absolutely I would,” said Schultz on his nationally syndicated radio show on Wednesday, the day the show began airing live locally on KQLX 106.1 FM.

If he does mount a return to the Bison booth, it won’t happen immediately.

The lineup of football announcers – Scott Miller of WDAY 970 AM and former NDSU defensive lineman Phil Hansen – will not change in 2009-2010, said Jeremy Jorgenson, director of sales and broadcasting for the NDSU athletic department.

“We’re set in stone for next year,” said Jorgenson, who also reports from the sideline during Bison football broadcasts.

Schultz said Thursday he plans to back a bid for the rights to Bison broadcasts, a contract that’s long been held by WDAY and that expires after next year’s basketball season.

“Obviously, I’m thinking long-term. The Ed Schultz brand isn’t leaving Fargo,” he said.

Schultz said he could either make an offer through his broadcasting company or KQLX, an NDSU affiliate that airs Bison games, could join in the bidding.

“There’s a number of different ways we could go,” he said.

Jorgenson said negotiations for Bison broadcast rights won’t start until fall.

Kevin Weaver, general manager of WDAY radio, was out of the office Thursday. Mark Prather, general manager of both WDAY radio and television, didn’t return a message seeking comment. WDAY, like The Forum, is owned by Forum Communications Co.

Joel Heitkamp, operations manager for KFGO 790 AM, said he wasn’t sure if KFGO – which broadcasts University of North Dakota games – will put in a bid for the Bison package.

Despite his daily three-hour radio program and his daily 60-minute show on MSNBC, Schultz said he could fit Bison football into his schedule.

“Not a problem at all. Airplanes go 500 mph,” said Schultz, who until late March also hosted a local show for KFGO – where his national show had aired on delay in the evening until it moved to KQLX.

Schultz said his radio and TV shows would give the Bison a national footprint no local announcer could offer. But even if he doesn’t land the contract, he said throwing his hat in the ring is good for NDSU.

“If nothing else, I’m going to drive up the price,” he said.

Schultz brought up the possibility of a return on Wednesday by noting that KQLX airs Bison games. It will continue as an affiliate even though the signal of the station, which is licensed to Lisbon, N.D., was boosted last year and can be heard easily in Fargo.

Jake Weber, general manager of KQLX, admitted having two broadcasts of Bison games on the air in Fargo is “totally weird,” but Jorgenson said KQLX helps bolster the network of Bison broadcasters in southeast North Dakota.

“We don’t see a conflict in the metro,” Jorgenson said.

I like how liberal Eddie says "If nothing else, I'm going to drive up the price."

What?  How is that fair?  Isn't everyone entitled?  What about affirmative action?

So far my favorites are:

If this 'redheaded albino manatee in a suit gets anywhere close to doing the bison games' I'm gone!!!!


Can't we just drive a stake into his heart to get rid of him. What a over blown, puffed up braggart he is.

and simply -


No no no no dear God NO!


What great comedic relief on such a dreary day.

I just can't get the "howling" rendition out of my head. I was fortunate enough to be in Wing the year he blasted his dog on tape.

Does NDSU have anyone left to play football? Every day another one shows his intelligence.

I am not sure how the bidding process works, but I do think that NDSU runs a huge backlash risk from allowing this blow hole to be the voice of the Bison. Numerous people I have encountered over the past couple days have all had negative responses to this.

The best summation of this came from a promenent Team Maker, who said he would not in any way shape or form continue to support the programs at NDSU atheltics in his words " If that fat ego maniac becomes the voice of the Bison, I will become a UND supporter"

Myself, I would simply stop listening to NDSU football. In the fall I always when out hunting have both UND and NDSU stations programed into the radio. I like a lot of others will simply stop tuning in and either read about the game or find something else to listen to.

My point of view has nothing to do with Ed's political point of view, but simply that he was a lousy play by play annoucer.
In my lifetime I have seen fence row to fence row farming and the return of CRP and game to the landscape.Now we face again the prosepect of fence row to fence row again! Sportsman are our own worst enemy in that we fail to look forward and focus to much on the now!

This is exactly what I find the most interesting. According to this:

"Schultz said his radio and TV shows would give the Bison a national footprint no local announcer could offer. But even if he doesn’t land the contract, he said throwing his hat in the ring is good for NDSU.

“If nothing else, I’m going to drive up the price,” he said."

Schultz seems to think he'll be welcomed back with open arms and he is held in high-esteem. Yet, about 99 percent of the comments are totally against it. I'm just curious to know what he bases the above comments on. With those comments, why does he think he's respected and wanted in any way, shape or form? I guess it's another one of those things I will rack up in the "i'll never understand" category.

bucknbears, one of my best friends drug his arse out of Peppers in south Fargo.  Never got to witness it though.  Apparently Big Eddy couldnt keep his hands off a waitress even though he was married at the time.

The only explanation with Eddy's  radical departure to the left is probably because that whiskey bottle knocked him in the head back in the Fall of 1988 and he hasnt been rationale since.

I am pretty sure Eddy is just a whore who saw he could get more money by rolling from the right to the left. He tries to line his pockets however he can (along with trying to make himself sound better).

Tim,  its about liberal economics.   Obamanomics if you will.   Ok to benefit a liberal blowhard, the government, a union, or an outfit like ACORN but bad for the average Joe trying to make an honest non-subsidized living.

I still think it is kinda funny how he supposedely left KFGO for his new MSNBC show.  However the truth is big ED got FIRED!  Sexual harrasment again, his wife knew all about it in this case too.

To put it bluntly, Ed Schultz sucks!  If I never hear another word out of his fat mug it will be too soon!  He has no integrity, no class, and no guts.  I witnessed him storming off of the set the last time he was interviewed on Fox news...what a putz!  As far as his opinions go he swings like a gate....as I recall he started out a Republican and then he inexplicably changed.  The Republicans are much better off without him and so is Bison football.

Ed shot his dog!  Ed shot his dog!

Slap!  Slap!  Slap!   -the sound of Ed's hand as it strikes his wife
