First of all shouts to Wendy ,Kevin, and Charlemagne for doing me the big solid and interviewing Nipsey Hussle a few weeks back. Now to the dismay of millions, Wendy has decided to quit her infamous radio show and focus full time on her burgeoning television career.
For months, fans of Wendy Williams have wondered how the boisterous broadcaster would handle the demands of hosting a radio program and a television talk show. Now they have their answer: on Wednesday night, Ms. Williams said that she would leave her daily radio show, “The Wendy Williams Experience,” at the end of the month.
In a news release, Ms. Williams said that she would depart the show, which has been broadcast since 2002 on the New York radio station WBLS 107.5 and is syndicated nationally, after the July 31 show to focus on her television series, “The Wendy Williams Show.” In a statement, Ms. Williams said she was “blessed to have a broadcast home” on New York radio, adding: “My hope is that you will do your best to find me on your remote so I can continue to entertain and inform you each and every day.”
Deon Levingston, the vice president and general manager of WBLS said in a statement: “We are saddened to lose one of our most popular personalities. But we understand what it requires to put a live show on television each and every day and wish Wendy all the best in this new venture.”
“The Wendy Williams Show” has been shown nationally in syndication and on BET since July 13, following a trial run that was shown last summer in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Detroit.
