Jerry Springer is joining the ‘Good Morning Britain’ team.
Springer will report on the run -up to the election beginning in February and then present live coverage from Washington in November. Although he’s most famous for his outrageous 90’s talk show ‘The Jerry Springer Show’, the 71-year-old is also the former Democrat Mayor of Cincinnati, having held the office from 1977 to 1978.
Springer’s coverage will see him bringing insight and analysis on the presidential race and in a series of short films he will talk to Americans about who they’ll be voting for. He’ll also be on hand to review each candidate’s televised debates.
“I'm excited about joining 'Good Morning Britain' in bringing stateside coverage of this year's American Election, which so far is looking more outrageous than the chaos normally seen on my television show,” Springer said.
"The consequences of the campaign, as well as the results, will impact much, if not all, of the world,” he added. Currently Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are competing for the Democratic nomination, while Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush are vying for the Republican candidacy.
