JERRY LEWIS STEPS DOWN FROM HIS TELETHON
Monday, May 16, 2011
Another TV legend is leaving his longtime gig. This will be the last year Jerry Lewis will host his muscular dystrophy telethon.
"As a labor of love, I've hosted the annual Telethon since 1966and I'll be making my final appearance on the show this year byperforming my signature song, `You'll Never Walk Alone," Lewis said.
The 85-year-old said he'll continue serving as national Muscular Dystrophy Association chairman, as he's done since the early 1950s.
For years, the telethon has been a 21 1/2 hour event. But this year, it's been dramatically shortened and will air for only 6 hours in primetime on September 4.
