Wallenda: The circus will continue through thick and thin

Posted at 9:37 AM, Jan 16, 2017

The King of the High Wire who walked across Niagara Falls in 2012 is sad to see the Ringling Brothers Circus come to an end.

In a statement, Nik Wallenda says the Ringling Brothers helped him get to where he is today.

"Today has certainly been a day of reflection. I have spent most of the day doing interviews starting at 5:30 a.m. on Good Morning America and ending the day on NBC nightly news. Now, as I have time to take it all in, I am certainly heartbroken. If it wasn't for Ringling Brothers, neither my wife nor I would be here. Although I am saddened by the news of this American icon shutting down, I also see it as a great opportunity; an opportunity to show America that the circus will continue on as it has through thick and thin for hundred of years. I am inspired by the support of the millions of fans across the globe that so dearly love the art of circus. The show WILL go on and Never Give Up!"
