Goodbye to a TV Legend

Updated: Apr 28, 2023

Jerry Springer, the TV legend known for his controversial and influential talk show, has passed away at 79 after battling pancreatic cancer. His iconic show, which ran for 27 years, was famous for its sensational guests and chaotic brawls. Before his television career, Springer was a politician, serving as Cincinnati's mayor in the late 70s.

Initially focused on political issues, "The Jerry Springer Show" pivoted to a conflict-driven format that brought him worldwide fame, even surpassing Oprah Winfrey's show in some cities. Post-"Springer," he hosted the courtroom show "Judge Jerry" for three seasons and made his final TV appearance on "The Masked Singer." Springer is survived by his daughter Katie and sister Evelyn. As we say goodbye to this TV icon, we remember him with the iconic chant, "Jerry, Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!"

Rest in peace, Jerry Springer.
