Talkers Schultz, Hennen plan joint announcement

Fargo’s best-known political pundits may reach across the ideological aisle to join forces.

Scott Hennen, a conservative talk show host and owner of the talk-radio station 1100 AM The Flag, has set a news conference for 9 a.m. Monday in which Ed Schultz is scheduled to appear, said RaeAnn McLean, a Hennen spokeswoman.

Schultz is the left-wing host of a three-hour nationally syndicated radio show and a one-hour television show on MSNBC.

A news release about the Monday event at the Fargo Theatre heavily hints that a collaboration of sorts is in the works, stating three potential announcements: pigs flying, hell freezing over or a team-up between Schultz and Hennen.

Schultz’s show now airs as the sole talk program on 106.1 FM, a classic country station. Until shortly before he landed the MSNBC TV program in early April, Schultz also hosted a local-issues show on 790 AM.

McLean said she couldn’t give additional details, and Hennen didn’t return a phone call Thursday.
