Ed Schultz' Wife Wendy Diagnosed With Ovarian Cancer Ed Schultz made a devastating announcement on his radio show on Thursday. The MSNBC host, who has been absent from his radio and TV show for the past week, announced that his wife Wendy was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Speaking to his guest radio host Mike Papantonio, Schultz said that he and his wife had been "through the ringer." "It's been a real jolt to say the least," Schultz said. "It shakes you to your bones. But she's a tough girl, and she went through surgery yesterday. The doctors feel like they got all of it...but we've got a long way to go."
