Jerry Springer’s bodyguard secures his own show
February 19th, 2007 under Jerry Springer, Talk Shows. [ Comments: none ]

Jerry Springer’s security guard Steve Wilkos has landed his own talkshow. The bald-headed, ex-Chicago police officer will be "offering advice and doling out his own version of justice" in the daily one-hour show, which is due to air in the US from the Autumn. The as-yet untitled series will be filmed in front of a live studio audience at WMAQ-TV Chicago, the home of The Jerry Springer Show for the past sixteen years. Richard Dominick, ep of Jerry, will also serve as ep on the new show. Wilkos has become synonymous with the show since he joined in 1993, and has even filled in as guest host in Jerry’s absence over the past two seasons. "It’s truly incredible that I first came to work part-time with Jerry and Richard some 14 years ago and here I am now getting my own show," said Wilkos. "I believe my Marine training of what is right and what is wrong and the street smarts I picked up as a police officer, will assist me in helping my guests get through the hard times they face each day." "Steve and I have been working on this project for many years and it’s very exciting to see it come to fruition," said Dominick. "If you are rich and need help, you can call a lawyer or a doctor. For ordinary people, when they have a problem, they call the police and now they can call Steve. America needs a hero and now they have one." Springer added: "I am thrilled that Steve is getting his own shot and the fact that we will be paired back-to-back in many markets starting next season will make for a very strong lineup. The question now is, how well can he dance?"

I see that show lasting as long as the marriages of the guests who appear on Jerry Springer do…a week.

I just hope that Jerry Springer does the Watlz with Kym at all of his dates! And it sounds like that the show is not doing that well with sales if they are adding these two and announcing there are still tickets left?

Jerry Springer gives up his radio show
December 4th, 2006 under Dancing with the Stars, Jerry Springer. [ Comments: none ]

With a movie role and a possible Super Bowl commercial from his “Dancing with the Stars” exposure, Jerry Springer will end his weekday radio show Friday after two years. “These things are not going to come around again, particularly at my age, so I might as well take advantage of them, ” said Springer, 62. The former Cincinnati mayor will fly to Los Angeles next week to film a Bud Light commercial which may air during the Super Bowl, he says. He recently taped a guest shot on ABC’s “George Lopez” sitcom, as a boyfriend for Lopez’s mother, and was asked to become a recurring character, he says. In February, he’ll play a rabbi in a feature film called “God Only Knows.” The offers came from Springer’s seven-week fall stint as the comic relief on TV’s most popular reality show. ABC viewers enjoyed his self-deprecating humor, which had not been seen often on his daytime “trash TV” show. The last original “Springer on the Radio” will be 9 a.m.-noon today on WSAI-AM (1360). Reruns will air through Friday for about two dozen affiliates, down from a peak of 53. Springer launched the national show from WCKY-AM (1530) in January 2005. It moved to weaker WSAI-AM in July. He has only broadcast once from Cincinnati since August, he said. “Radio is a full-time job, and I just couldn’t do it,” he said today from his Chicago TV studio. “I did one show in three months from Cincinnati. That’s absurd. That’s not fair.”

Sara Evans has invited talk show host Jerry Springer to perform during her Dec. 1 concert in Merrillville, Ind., near Chicago. Evans and Springer were both competitors on this season of Dancing With the Stars. "Jerry loves country music," says Evans. "He is a huge fan and even cut a country record so I invited him to sing at my show in Merrillville where he’ll do a couple of classic songs. … I cannot wait!" Although she bowed out of the series due to her impending divorce, Evans returned to Dancing With the Stars on Wednesday (Nov. 15) to perform on the finale with partner Tony Dovolani.
