Controversial talk show host Jerry Springer has died at the age of 79: Media gives reason

Jerry Springer dies at his home near Chicago

The notorious American TV presenter, comedian and politician Jerry Springer has died at the age of 79. According to foreign media, the cause was a short illness of the artist - pancreatic cancer.

The American had been feeling increasingly worse for a week, but he spent his last days not in hospital but in his own home near Chicago. This was reported by TMZ (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photo).

The star's spokesman commented that he died on Thursday, April 27. Springer was diagnosed with cancer just a few months ago.


Springer graduated in political science and began his career as an advisor to Senator Robert Kennedy's team, and after his assassination, he joined a law firm in Cincinnati. Later, the ambitious politician became a member of the city council, but in 1974 he was forced to resign due to a scandal. The police found a cheque he had written for the services of a girl of easy virtue. Despite this, he managed to serve as mayor of Cincinnati in 1977-1978.


After his political career, Springer went to television, where in 1991 the first episode of his controversial talk show The Jerry Springer Show was broadcast. Initially, the project was positioned as a serious programme about politics, but in order to attract more viewers, the format was changed.

Ordinary people began to come to the host with their trashy stories on topics that did not leave anyone indifferent - infidelity, racism, paedophilia, prostitution, etc. Fights and scandals often broke out during the talk show, and he was criticised for it.


At the same time, the American hosted other programmes on TV and radio. He was also invited to act in films more than once. However, he mostly played himself in the films.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL wrote that OnlyFans model and lookalike of the world-famous socialite Kim Kardashian, Christina Ashten Gurkani, died at the age of 34 from an acute heart attack. It happened after another plastic surgery.
