On his first day on the job, he was sent to cover Hurricane Diana. He spent the rest of that fall shadowing Senator Jesse Helms as he ran against Governor Jim Hunt, which is widely remembered as the most expensive and possibly dirtiest campaign in Senate history.
While attending college, Ed worked in radio and had an internship at Georgia Educational Television covering the Georgia Legislature and reporting on a nightly news show called The Lawmakers.

In 1981, he accepted a job as a reporter at WTVC-TV, an ABC affiliate in Chattanooga, TN. Ed attended the University of Georgia from 1975 to 1979, where he met his wife, Donna.
