Daytime talk show host Jerry Springer will become “Judge Jerry” when a new syndicated court show launches in 2019.
In each episode, Springer will take on actual cases featuring real people.
“For the first time in my life, I am going to be called honorable,” said Springer. “My career is coming full circle and I finally get to put my law degree to use after all these years.”
Springer, the former mayor of Cincinnati, hosted the “Jerry Springer Show” for 27 years. The program finished production in June 2018.
According to a press release, “Prior to his work in entertainment, Springer began his career as a lawyer having received his law degree from Northwestern University. He joined a law firm in Cincinnati and began practicing law, which he would continue to do for over 15 years.”
