Jerry Springer, a prominent figure in American television and entertainment, has passed away at the age of 79.

On Thursday morning (April 27), Linda Shafran, Springer’s publicist, confirmed his death to Fox News Digital.

For over three decades, Springer captivated audiences as the host of his eponymous show, The Jerry Springer Show, renowned for its sensational topics, confrontational guests, and extravagant theatrics. Although the program faced criticism, it achieved cult status, spawning numerous imitations and parodies.

Springer remained a beloved personality in the entertainment industry. His journey began as a lawyer and politician, during which he served as mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio from 1977 to 1978. Following the conclusion of his political career, he transitioned into broadcasting, ultimately securing his own talk show in 1991.

Since 2019, Springer starred in the show Judge Jerry Springer, where he put his law degree to good work and heard real cases and gave verdicts on TV.

Whenthe news broke of his passing, there was no cause of death revealed, but his representative Jean Galvin told NBC News that the TV icon passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

“Jerry’s ability to connect with people was at the heart of his success in everything he tried whether that was politics, broadcasting or just joking with people on the street who wanted a photo or a word. He’s irreplaceable and his loss hurts immensely, but memories of his intellect, heart and humor will live on,” Galvin said.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends, especially his daughter, Katie Springer.

May he rest in peace.
