British-American host of "The Jerry Springer Show," a violent, confrontational, infamous television talk show. Although the program has now been toned down considerably, the host has become adept at justifying the show’s own form of morality. Springer’s book, "Ringmaster," 1998, takes its readers behind the scenes of the hit show and includes information on his personal life and professional career.

Springer was born in London as his family fled from the Holocaust, and when he was five years old, they immigrated to the United States. They arrived in New York City, full of awe and anticipation, and he describes his life as being dedicated to upholding the freedoms that America and the Constitution offer.

After attending Tulane University and earning his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, Springer went on to get his law degree at Northwestern University in 1968. After graduation, he began working as a campaign aide for Senator Robert F. Kennedy. After Kennedy’s assassination, he joined a law firm and began working in politics himself, first turning his efforts toward ratifying the 26th Amendment to the Constitution, designed to lower the voting age. In 1971, he was elected to Council-at-Large in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he served five terms, and in 1977, he was elected mayor of Cincinnati, one of the youngest mayors in the U.S.

His television career began five years later when he became a political reporter and commentator for WLWT in Cincinnati, and by 1984, he had moved up to the position of anchor and managing editor. His controversial talk show premiered on 9/30/1991, and in January 1993, he gave up his anchor-editor duties to devote himself fulltime to his show. He made his feature film debut in November 1998 in "Ringmaster," and in 1999, he appeared in "Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me."

Springer works with several charitable organizations such as the Audrey Hepburn Hollywood for Children Fund and has served as a co-host on Jerry Lewis’s annual "Stars Across America" telethon for muscular dystrophy a few times. He also established a scholarship fund for the Kellman School of Chicago, an institution dedicated to helping inner-city youth.

On January 17, 2005 Springer began hosting a liberal radio talk show aired in Cincinnati, Ohio via WCKY-AM. The political talk show will air for three hours each week day, and Springer will continue hosting his TV show as well. Springer intends to sponsor a discussion of political issues to counter conservative talk shows, but he says he is reserving the raunchy, raucous antics for his TV show.

A forum member pointed to this Link: "I was born 11:45 at night." from CNN interview. Transcript: http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1106/01/pmt.01.html

Previously, Frank Clifford quoted his autobiography written with Laura Morton, "Ringmaster," St. Martin's Press, 2000, "late on the evening of Feb 13th." Clifford gives an approximate spec of 10:00 PM, Libra rising with Neptune. LMR gives an approximate spec of 8:00 PM, Virgo rising with a Gemini MC contained by Uranus-Mars. Clifford later approached Springer in person, during a taping of "America's Got Talent" at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and asked directly for his time of birth. Springer confirmed the 23:45 time given during the CNN interview.
