Just in, “The Wendy Williams Show” has been renewed in 80% of the country’s television markets, that’s 18 of the top 20.
The show is now slated to be on through 2012.
The new additions include stations owned by Lin, Tribune, Local TV, Sinclair, Raycom and Granite. They are joining the Fox Television Stations, which last fall renewed the talk show in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago.
“Wendy” launched nationally on the Fox O&Os and other major groups in July 2009, following a six-week, four-market preview on Fox stations in summer 2008.
A film based on her life, ‘Queen of Media’ starring Robin Givens, is slated to be released later this year.
