Is Wendy Williams leaving her radio show to just focus on her TV show?  It is looking that way if you believe amemo announcement that hit last night and a tip we received by someone in New York.

Here is the memo:

Executives from WBLS and representatives for Wendy Williams today jointly announced Ms. Williams plans to leave her daily radio show at month’s end to dedicate herself full time to THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW, a nationally syndicated talker which launched July 13th. Ms. Williams, who has been a fixture on WBLS since 2002, has spent more than two decades on the air winning over fans and was recently nominated as a potential inductee to the National Radio Hall of Fame. Her radio show has consistently rated as one of the highest rated programs on the station.

“We are saddened to lose one of our most popular personalities,” noted Deon Levingston, Vice President and General Manager of WBLS. “But we understand what it requires to put a live show on television each and every day and wish Wendy all the best in this new venture.”

“I want to tell all of my fans that after July 31st, I will no longer be doing a show with WBLS,” Williams said. “I really was blessed to have a broadcast home in NY on radio for the past 7 years and I want to thank everyone who supported me. I have one of the best jobs in the world, making a difference in the lives of my fans made all the difference to me and I look forward to doing the same thing in my new role as a TV host. My hope is that you will do your best to find me on your remote so I can continue to entertain and inform you each and every day.”

So anyone listen to her radio show today? I have a feeling if it is true, she would mention it on the radio show before her TV show. She has yet to bring up her radio show at all on the TV show.

So Wendy, woman, tell us, “How You Doin?”-Dr.FB

    I’m a big Wendy fan but I’m worried about this move. From what I know, she started really strong with the show last week but the show just started, who knows what will happen in January. I’m not shocked that she’s leaving radio to focus on the show but I wonder if she’s jumping the gun. I would think that she’d want to see how the show does ratingswise for a few months before leaving, if it’s a surefire hit. Whatever the case, I will support Wendy and listen to her radio show on WBLS at 2pm today to see what she says about this. One things for sure, radio won’t be the same without her there.

    Wendy – “How You Doin?” LOL

    Wendy, dont give up your radio job. I see alot of radio personalities like Michael Baisden, Tom Joyner, Howard Stern, etc. etc. that tried to merge to TV and failed to get the same audience power like their radio show. The transition between TV and radio is not the same and doesnt read well. I wish her well but I hope she doesnt close the door on radio forever.
