William Dawes "Bill" Schulz (born August 14, 1975) is an American journalist, writer, and television personality, best known for being on the Fox News late-night show Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld.

Schulz is also a freelance writer and a former senior editor of Stuff Magazine.[1]

Early life[edit]

Schulz was born William Dawes Schulz in Lake Forest, Illinois. He has two brothers, Alfred and Jonathan, and was raised Catholic.[2] He is a descendent of William Dawes, who rode with Paul Revere in the "Midnight Ride" during the American Revolution.[3] He attended high school in Illinois at Lake Forest Academy, and in 1998 received a BA in Print Journalism from Emerson College.[4]

Red Eye[edit]

From its debut in 2007 until 2013, Schulz was a regular panelist, writer, and producer on "Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld". Serving as host Greg Gutfeld's "repulsive sidekick" who was routinely the target of Gutfeld's running gags, Schulz often looked directly into the camera (even when he was not being talked to) with his signature "crazy-eyed look," along with frequently waving to the television viewing audience. Schulz provided the voice for an anthropomorphism of The New York Times newspaper, named "Pinch" (a reference to Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr., current publisher of the Times).

Schulz also provided irreverent "man-on-the-street" segments featured on Red Eye, often conducted in Times Square and occasionally at special events. One included him joining the Occupy Wall Street protest on its first day and interviewing the crowd while making bizarre protests himself.[5]

Schulz's final appearance on Red Eye was on November 7, 2013, and his departure (for undisclosed reasons) was officially announced on November 22.[6]

Writing[edit]

Schulz currently works as a freelance writer. His articles have appeared in Maxim, The Daily Beast, and The New York Times.[7][8][9]
