Lecture: Jerry of All Trades

Thursday, January 24

Nobody has a resume quite like Jerry Springer. He was a political campaign aide to Robert F. Kennedy, a 33-year-old Democratic mayor of Cincinnati and failed Ohio gubernatorial candidate who ran ads admitting he once solicited a prostitute. And that's just his political career. He also worked as a popular radio news anchor, country musician, actor (Hollywood and Broadway), Air America radio personality, Dancing with the Stars contestant, and, of course, host of the 18-year-old, chair-throwing Jerry Springer Show. Springer arrives in Tampa this week for University of South Florida's University Lecture Series to speak on a subject he knows intimately: the impact of media on society. Thurs., Jan. 24, 8 p.m., USF Sun Dome Corral, 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, $8 genearl/$3 faculty, staff and alumni (free admission for USF students), 813-287-8844, uls.usf.edu.
