Dr Mehmet Oz on Tuesday announced that he is running for an open US Senate seat in Pennsylvania, as a Republican – thus questioning the future of his daytime TV show.
In September 2020, The Dr. Oz Show has been renewed for Seasons 13 and 14, commencing Spring of 2023.
Representing Sony Pictures Television, co-producer The Dr. Oz Show, has not yet responded to TVLine’s request for comment. But what used became the online hub of its daytime program, DoctorOz.com, abruptly switched gears on Tuesday, removing any and all program/modification information and replacing it with news of the launch of its campaign Oz and the “Why am I running” explanation.
Oz writes (with coverage of any and all medical puns), “Today, America’s heartbeat is in the red and needs a defibrillator to revive it. Many of us feel like we are in the adjoining operating room, armed with insights and prepared, but reluctant to leave our quiet, peaceful surroundings for the chaos. next. But for me, stepping into politics is the right thing to do.”
Several paragraphs later, he said concluding, “I am running for the United States Senate to unify our holy spark, bravely fight for freedom, and will tell it so.”
Oz officially announced its Senate bid through a op-ed on Tuesday Judge Washington, followed by a video posted on Twitter. A longtime New Jersey resident registered to vote in Pennsylvania, Oz and his name are recognized as an open race to which Sean Parnell, a candidate backed by former President Donald Trump, bowed his head. lost amid some controversies.
Of course, Oz himself was no stranger to causing a ruckus. In August 2020, to give an example, he supported the idea that although “any life is a life lost”, “the mortality rate is between 2% and 3%” as reopening schools during the pandemic “could be a trade-off some would consider. ”
After a few years as a regular customer of Oprah Winfrey Program, Oz in 2009 debuted his show of the same name, co-produced by Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and Sony Pictures Television.
