Maurice Richard "Maury" Povich (born January 17, 1939) is an American actor and TV talk show personality who currently hosts his self-titled talk show Maury. He is married to journalist Connie Chung.

Maury Povich is the son of Washington Post sportswriter Shirley Povich and Ethyl Povich born 1902 (died 2000) and was the second of three children. Shirley Povich wrote in his autobiography that his father Nathan Povich immigrated from Lithuania to the United States in 1878; Nathan was 12 at the time. Maury Povich graduated from the Landon School in 1957 and the University of Pennsylvania in 1962 with a degree in television journalism. From 1962 to 1979, Povich was married to Phyllis Minkoff. Povich later married news anchor Connie Chung in 1984, whom he met while working in the news department at WTTG-TV in Washington. With Minkoff, Povich had two daughters, Susan and Amy; in 1995, Povich and Chung adopted a son, Matthew Jay Povich.

Not long after graduation, Povich got his first job on Washington, D.C. radio station WWDC, where he did publicity and worked as a reporter. By 1966, Povich became a news reporter and sportscaster for DC television station WTTG-TV. In 1967, he became the original co-host of the station's popular midday talk show, Panorama, which brought the rising star widespread acclaim and national recognition. From 1977 to 1983, he worked as a news anchor at stations in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Philadelphia. He finally returned to Washington, D.C., in June 1983.
