Springer Security Guard Hits Hard On New Show

PARK RIDGE, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – As head of security on The Jerry Springer Show, Steve Wilkos wrestles with some wild guests, but for his new gig hosting The Steve Wilkos Show, he shows there are two sides to every televised tale.

Wilkos, a former Chicago policeman, dishes out tough love to everyone from deadbeat dads to kids on the street.

He explains, “Sometimes victims don’t want to stand up on their own two feet and accept responsibility. Sometimes the bad guy turns out to be the good guy. There’s not always a happy resolution.”

After work, however, it turns out home is where the heart – and hard work – is for Wilkos and his two young children.

He says, “I’ll definitely be a disciplinarian when they get older – I don’t want to raise spoiled kids.”

But don’t expect Wilkos’ new glamorous gig to go to his head.

He softens up, and says, “I don’t care about going out to nightclubs, I care about being home with my wife and playing with my kids.”

The Steve Wilkos Show premieres September 10.
