Media Bistro is an online community dedicated to anyone who creates or works with content, or who is a non-creative professional working in a content/creative industry. This includes, but is not limited to writers, editors, tv, advertising, PR, and design. They’ve created a video series that takes a person in the media who is at the top of their game and have them talk about their “Big Break.”
Wendy Williams was chosen as one of their subjects and as The Queen of All Media, the “How You Doin’” host had a lot to say! She opened up about her very first low-paying job and how she made it from there to hosting her own daytime talk show.
Williams stressed that none of the “big breaks” she received would be possible without her very first, which was a radio job at Northeastern’s University library. Once Wendy graduated from the school, she applied at a radio station in St. Criox. She took the job sight-unseen and started two weeks after college. Williams gave herself a year to get a job on the mainland and get off the island. In her own words Williams claimed to have no friends, no sex and basically no social life making $3.25 an hour for four hours a day.
