The telethon that takes over your TV Labor Day weekend will be missing one key element this year: Jerry Lewis.
The chairman of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the face of its telethons is no longer serving either role, Fox reports.
The 85-year-old served as MDA chair since the ’50s, and “has completed his run” in the role, according to the Tucson-based MDA.
Lewis announced in May plans to retire, but was expected to appear in this year’s telethon. He won’t be replaced as chairman.
