The MAURY Talk Show was canceled after 31 years as the longtime presenter decided to retire.

The presenter, Maury Povich, planned to retire at the end of production.

This controversial series continues on social issues and hot topics, featuring not only the show’s guests but also the live studio audience.
Maury was last renewed two years ago through the 2021-2022 television season, according to a press release from NBCUniversal obtained by People.
“Maury and I decided two years ago that this season would be the show’s farewell season, and while his retirement has been bittersweet, we’re glad he was able to spend so much time more time on the golf course,” explained Tracie Wilson, EVP of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, in a statement to Deadline.
“Maury is a TV icon, a pop culture legend and we couldn’t be prouder to be a part of his incredible career.”
Maury had previously discussed ending her show, saying: “Six years before I was due to retire, my NBCUniversal family asked me to continue the show.
“Although I told them I was ready for the assisted life, out of loyalty to NBCUniversal and my 100+ employees and crew members, Tracie Wilson and I agreed to an agreement. more favorable.
“I’m very proud of my relationship with NBCUniversal and all the people who work on the Maury show but I tell my guests on Maury from time to time, ‘Had enough!'”

He later achieved fame by hosting A Current Affair in 1986, where he remained until 1990.
Discussing his show with the Chicago Tribune in 2012, Maury Povich said: “They touch on a lot of classic themes, whether it’s love, mistrust, conflict, drama.
“And especially paternity, you used to say, grandparent-speak, was-he-is-father, not-grandpa.
“While soap operas play those themes for over six months, we play them for more than 12 minutes.”
Maury, 83, married his wife Connie Chung in 1984, a well-known journalist, actress and writer.
She and her husband were once known as one of the power couples in the media industry.
Connie has worked on major television networks such as CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and ABC.
She also played major roles in Murphy Brown, House of Cards and The Undoing.
