Jerry Springer, a television legend and a former mayor of Cincinnati, died on Thursday at the age of 79 in his suburban Chicago home. He was the famous talk host of a renowned US talk show.
The impact Jerry Springer had on television and American culture cannot be misjudged. Springer is most known for his cutting-edge and frequently contentious daytime talk show, “The Jerry Springer Show.”
After quitting politics, Jerry Springer began his career in television as a journalist covering politics and anchor for WLWT, an NBC station in Cincinnati. On the same channel, he established “The Jerry Springer Show” in 1991. The show was renowned for its contentious chair-throwing brawls, foul-mouthed discussions, and combative style, making it an addictive pastime for many. The program was a huge rating success and ran for 27 years on television.
Despite the complaints made against his program, Springer consistently defended it as “escapist entertainment.” He claimed the guests willingly agreed to the scorn or disgrace that would befall them on air. The show stopped in 2018 after more than 4,000 episodes, but Springer’s legacy lived on through his podcasts.
Jerry Springer Cause of Death
After “a brief illness,” Springer passed away peacefully at home in Chicago, according to a family representative, as reported by TMZ.
The family is currently organizing the funeral services and a gathering to remember the deceased. Instead of buying flowers, they suggest donating to a worthy cause. Springer’s family asks people to perform a kind act for a person in need.
This request is consistent with Springer’s gentle and hospitable character.
