Who Will Reveal the Father Now that Maury Povich is Retiring? (TV)

After the news of Maury Povich retiring, is anyone else wondering who will reveal the father now?

Veteran daytime talk show host and “Who’s The Father” extraordinaire, Maury Povich announces his retirement. His last season of original episodes for “Maury” is set to air in September, after a 31-year run.

NBCUniversal confirms his retirement in a statement but honors his time and legacy saying that old episodes will live on. “The show has thousands of lively, entertaining, and dramatic episodes that will continue to be successful in daytime for years to come,” said NBCUniversal.

“Maury and I decided two years ago that this season would be the farewell season for the show, and while his retirement is bittersweet, we are so happy for him to be able to spend more time on the golf course,” executive vice president of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, Tracie Wilson said. “Maury is a television icon, a pop-culture legend and we couldn’t be more proud to have been a part of his incredible career.”

According to NBCUniversal, Maury Povich is the longest-running daytime talk show host in broadcast television, praised for his 31 years of service.

While “Maury” is not completely exiting NBCUniversal, other shows also ending this year are “Judge Jerry,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Nick Cannon” and “The Wendy Williams Show.”

Povich started his career in journalism, working as a news reporter and sportscaster for WTTG before co-hosting the daytime show “Panorama.” This launched his talk show hosting career. He also was the host of a tabloid news show “A Current Affair” in 1986. After leaving that show in 1990, he launched “The Maury Povich Show,” now shorted to “Maury.”

“Six years ago when I was ready to retire, my NBCUniversal family asked me to continue the show,” Povich said. “Even though I told them I was ready for assisted living, out of loyalty to NBCUniversal and my more than 100 staff and crew members, Tracie Wilson and I agreed to one more deal. I’m so proud of my relationship with NBCUniversal and all those who worked on the ‘Maury’ show but as I occasionally tell my guests on ‘Maury,’ ‘Enough, already!’”

    How The Bachelorette Is Managing Two Leading Women So Far

    The beginning of every new season of Bachelor franchise shows always start with the host’s voice announcing, “this is the most dramatic season yet,” and viewers are wondering if this may actually be the case for the currently airing season of the Bachelorette, including not one, but two women who are both the bachelorettes. Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia, both former finalists on Clayton’s season of the Bachelor, are best friends and began this journey extremely enthusiastic to have the other there by their side, not expressing too much worry about eventually falling in love with the same man. Considering the fact that 32 men walked out of the limos on night one, Gabby and Rachel didn’t seem to encounter many issues in the first two episodes, when they collectively gave roses to the men they wanted to keep, rather than handing out individual roses that were specifically from one of them. However, episode three is where problems began to arise on the “two bachelorettes” front.
