Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Jerry Springer is moving his radio show to the Air America radio network.

The show, which broadcasts out of Cincinnati, will replace the underperforming show Unfiltered which suffered from a lack of syndication on the one year-old radio network.

Springer was elected mayor of Cincinnati in 1977, and attempted a run for governor in 1982. While he came in third in the primary that year, he has maintained an interest in Democratic politics, and was an Ohio delegate at the 2004 DNC. Apparently he's trying to move beyond his reputation for running one of the trashiest talk shows on daytime television. That's fine since guys like Howard Stern, Mancow and numerous morning zoo shows have already cornered the market on exploiting white trash on the radio end of broadcasting.

Jerry Springer stepped down because of a hooker scandal.

He did try to run for Governer, but his, er, history held him back.
