OXFORD - Talk show host and former Cincinnati mayor Jerry Springer will be giving a lecture Thursday in Millet Hall at Miami University.
Springer, known nationally for the antics of his daytime talk show, will lecture on how "All Politics is Global." He has talked off-and-on about getting back into politics.
According to Craig Harkrider, supervisor of Miami's box office, 100 tickets have been sold in advance, but he anticipates good walk-up sales.
Holly Wissing , a university spokeswoman, said that universities should present a full range of individuals and viewpoints and "Mr. Springer represents one end of the spectrum."
Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma, two freshman honor societies, are sponsoring the lecture.
"Aside from the talk show, I think he does have history in Cincinnati," said Katherine Frey, president of Alpha Lambda Delta. "He has degrees and honors and he was a news anchor."
The event is a benefit for Children's Medical Research Foundation.
Based in Western Springs, Ill., the foundation provides money to research Sanfilippo syndrome, a rare disorder that causes mental retardation and early death in children.
The lecture begins at 8 p.m. and the cost is $3.
