[ # ] Jerry Springer gives up his radio show
December 4th, 2006 under Dancing with the Stars, Jerry Springer

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.”
