Hip hop radio queen and Method Man enemy Wendy Williams' morning TV show was originally planned to just be a temporary thing in a few select markets. But then she started with all the penis talk and the Omarosa-fighting and the advertiser-and-publicist-wooing, and now she's going to be going national. It's a loud, gossiping American media success story!

Proving her brand can be as successful on TV as it is on radio, Wendy Williams' daily TV Talk program, The Wendy Williams Show is headed for broader TV distribution. Following a successful multi-week preview on Fox Television owned-and-operated stations in four markets, Fox announced plans Monday (Aug. 18) to clear the Debmar-Mercury-distributed program in mid-2009 on stations in all 18 of its markets.

But is Milwaukee ready for Wendy? Sure, why not? [MediaWeek]
