Springer: Talk Radio

Springer adds radio talk show host to his resume

Jerry Springer has been a politician, television news anchorman and host of his own raunchy TV show. Now, he's returning to the city where he served as mayor to be a radio talk show host.

The 60-year-old Springer says he's excited about returning to Cincinnati and challenging conservatives with a politically driven show. Springer's three-hour show will air weekday mornings on WCKY AM, beginning this week. He'll broadcast from Cincinnati three days a week and do the other days from Chicago, where he tapes his TV show.

Some think the show may be a springboard for the Democrat to return to political office. But a spokesman for the Ohio Republican Party says the more airtime Springer gets, the less likely it is that someone will vote to elect him to public office.
