Wendy Williams passes the test; talk show to premiere in 18 markets in '09
Move over Maury and Jerry, there's a new provocateur of the less-than-seemly aspects of human nature in town. Radio Shock Jock-turned-daytime drama queen Wendy Williams' self-titled talker is set to debut in mid-2009 with a comittment from Fox television stations in 18 markets, according to Broadcasting and Cable.
Williams recent six weeks "test run" proved successful enough to warrant the show being picked up for a full season. I can't help but find the irony in "conservative" Fox being the media giant responsible for unleashing Wendy Williams on the airwaves. Somewhere Omarosa is practing her neck roll for round two.
