Former Marine and Chicago police officer who served as Director of Security on the Jerry Springer Show for 13 years. Wilkos, with his hulking physique and bald head, became a cultural icon and occasionally was allowed to guest host the show when Springer was absent. These guest hosting stints went over so well that Wilkos was given his own talk show in the fall of 2007.
