And finally….Alex Belfield met Jerry Springer for an exclusive interview and his life story.
When Jerry came to the West End Belfield couldn’t wait to meet him.
The Jerry Springer Show debuted on September 30, 1991. It was developed by WLWT to mimic the format and look of fellow talk show Donahue, all the way down to Jerry’s haircut and glasses, making him look like Phil Donahue (both were produced by Multimedia Entertainment).
It started as a politically oriented talk show, a longer version of Springer’s commentaries. Guests included Oliver North and Jesse Jackson, and topics included homelessness and gun politics.
Springer is an international Star, former mayor and he’s even had his own musical written about him!

Springer’s broadcast career started while he was an undergraduate at Tulane University, on WTUL New Orleans FM, a progressive format college radio station.
It continued while he was still mayor of Cincinnati, with album-oriented rock radio station WEBN-FM, which was noted for its laid-back and irreverent radio format.
The station featured commentaries by Springer under the banner “The Springer Memorandum.” The popularity of these commentaries launched his broadcasting career.
