Jerry Lewis Retires As Host Of Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon

Jerry Lewis will no longer be the face of the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Labor Day Telethon.

He released a statement saying:

“As a labor of love, I’ve hosted the annual Telethon since 1966, and I’ll be making my final appearance on the show this year by performing my signature song, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone.’ I’ll continue to serve MDA as its National Chairman – as I’ve done since the early 1950′s. I’ll never desert MDA and my kids.”

According to the association, Lewis has dedicated over 900 hours of himself to the organization over the years.

The new hosts will be Nigel Lythgoe, Alison Sweeney, Nancy O’Dell, and Jann Carl.

Jerry will be missed, and we truly appreciate his dedication to the cause!
