Jerry Springer, Air America talking

JERRY Springer is trying to hook up with the all-liberal Air America network — meaning his new radio talk show could soon be heard in New York.

"Obviously, I would love to be in New York — that's where I grew up," said Springer, 60, who was born in London and raised in Kew Gardens, Queens.

"Hopefully, something will be worked out in the next couple weeks," Springer told The Post late yesterday.

The trash-TV titan surprised many last January by turning serious and launching a daily political talk show based in Cincinnati. He continues to tape his controversial TV show in Chicago.

His radio show is already in five cities. Springer could be the spark Air America needs — in New York at least, where it's based at WLIB (1190 AM). After a solid debut last spring, especially among younger listeners, it appeared to fade last fall.
