TAMPA — Television talk show host Steve Wilkos will be the grand marshal of next month's Krewe of Sant' Yago Knight Parade in Ybor City.
The local television station that airs the Steve Wilkos Show, MOR-TV, also has signed a deal to be the parade's presenting sponsor for two years.
A former Chicago police officer, Wilkos was head of security for television personality Jerry Springer before launching his own show. Springer served at the parade's grand marshal last year.
The parade is scheduled for 7 p.m. Feb. 9 along Seventh Avenue in Ybor City, starting at Nuccio Parkway and traveling east.
