MSNBC host Ed Schultz ended his show last night by expanding a bit about his move to the weekends, and praising his replacement at 8 PM, Chris Hayes.

On moving to the weekend:

“I understand that Politico wrote that I am going to a relative no mans land for cable news programming. Really? Well I guess I wouldn’t want it any other way because we are going to build those hours into the best hours on cable.”

On Hayes:

“I also want to say to all of those folks who have been loyal to my brand, Chris Hayes is going to do a fantastic job, he is a great brilliant young talent and he is going to have a lot of years at 8 O’Clock.”
