Maury Ends After 30 Years On Air
21 Mar 2022
Beloved US talk show Maury is ending after 30 years.
Host Maury Povich announced his retirement and the end of his iconic NBCUniversal show, a mutual decision between the studio and 83-year-old.
“Six years ago when I was ready to retire, my NBCUniversal family asked me to continue the show,” Povich said in a statement shared with Deadline.
“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!’”
NBCU last renewed “Maury” in February 2020 for two more seasons, making him the longest-running daytime talk show host in the history of broadcast television.
The announcement is another blow to the daytime talk landscape with “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Nick Cannon” and “The Wendy Williams Show” also saying farewell.
