Jerry Springer's talk radio show going into national syndication

UPI News Service, 03/24/2005 

Trash TV star Jerry Springer's Midas touch has helped his local Cincinnati liberal talk show go into national syndication, the Cincinnati Post said Thursday.

The former mayor of Cincinnati is just nine weeks into airing the AM show, but has signed a deal with Air America to air his show from 9 a.m. to noon weekdays in 50 markets nationwide beginning April 1. The markets include New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Chicago.

Under the deal, Springer will retain ownership of his show and be free to market it to stations in cities not carrying Air America.

Springer does the show in Cincinnati Monday, Thursday and Friday, and returns to Chicago Tuesday and Wednesday to tape his fringe TV show. On those two days, he hosts the radio show from a Chicago studio.

In the last year, liberal talk radio has become the fastest growing radio format in the country, the newspaper said. Often called "progressive talk," the radio genre has grown to almost 100 now airing shows in the format.
