INNER CITY Urban WBLS/NEW YORK afternooner and syndicated WENDY WILLIAMS will launch a television talk show JULY 14th, reports THE NY DAILY NEWS. The hour-long daily show is scheduled for a six-week test run and will feature WILLIAMS interviewing prominent guests.
Initially it will be seen in four cities, on FOX O&O'S in NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, DALLAS and DETROIT. The syndicator is DEBMAR/MERCURY, in conjunction with FOX TELEVISION STATIONS, the station ownership division of NEWS CORP.
WILLIAMS said late last year that even though she was developing the TV show, "Radio is still my first love. It's my base. I won't give it up." She recently signed a new contract with WBLS.
While WILLIAMS is largely known for her opinions, her lifestyle advice and her gossip, she also has done a number of memorable interviews, including one with WHITNEY HOUSTON that shifted back and forth between comfortable and confrontational.
