THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW
Weekdays at 12pm
Called a "breakthrough in daytime," by The New York Times, Wendy Williams burst onto the national talk show scene in July 2009 with the launch of her daily, syndicated program, "The Wendy Williams Show," which has been renewed through the 2012-2013 television season. A mother, wife and best-selling author, Williams built a devoted cult following from her years as one of radio's most popular personalities, winning over legions of fans who couldn't wait to see the host make her television debut. Touted by People Magazine as one of the "best shows of 2009," the critically-acclaimed series now has the distinction of being "must-see TV." In addition to her daytime television success, Wendy will compete on Season 12 of ABC's ‘Dancing With The Stars' premiering March 21 and will also host GSN's new original series, ‘Love Triangle' slated to premiere April 11.
Williams, who was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame (only the second African American woman to be honored by the organization) in November 2009, parted ways with her top rated radio show The Wendy Williams Experience at the end of July, 2009. The program, which aired on WBLS in New York, was home to over 12 million listeners nationwide.
She is the author of two New York Times best sellers, Wendy's Got The Heat by Simon & Schuster and The Wendy Williams Experience by Dutton Books, as well as several novels including, Ritz Harper Goes to Hollywood.
Her previous television work included the VH1 series, entitled "Wendy Williams Is On Fire." Williams grew up in Ocean Township, New Jersey and currently lives in Northern New Jersey with her husband Kevin Hunter and their 10-year-old son, Kevin, Jr. Williams attended Northeastern University in Boston, MA, earning a Bachelor's Degree in communications with a minor in journalism.
