It’s no secret who the current queen of daytime talk shows is. Wendy Williams has secured her spot with her tea-spilling, controversial and always comical talk show, The Wendy Williams Show.
Last year Wendy secured a deal with Lionsgate for 2022, and news broke this morning [Wednesday, January 20] from Fox distributor Debmar-Mercury that The Wendy Williams Show will be extended until 2020.
Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, Co-Presidents of Lionsgate-owned Debmar-Mercury, said in a statement: “Wendy’s across-the-board strength in the demo most important to advertisers has made this talk show an indispensable part of stations’ daytime schedules. With these renewals, our valuable station partners can be assured this key lynchpin of their lineups will continue for many years to come, especially when it comes to having a powerful and dependable entertainment lead-out from many of their important morning news blocks. None of this would be possible without Wendy’s extraordinary talent and ability to captivate millions of loyal viewers each day.”
Congratulations are in order for Wendy and her award-winning staff!
