BET picks up 'Wendy Williams'

Launching July 13

BET Networks has acquired Debmar-Mercury’s “The Wendy Williams Show” to air beginning Monday, July 13 -- the same day the talk show debuts in national broadcast syndication.

After a four-market, six-week preview last summer on the Fox TV Stations in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Detroit, the one-hour entertainment talk show hosted by Williams was cleared on more than 95% of the U.S. ahead of its July 13 launch, and now, on BET.

Taped live in New York, “The Wendy Williams Show” combines the latest buzz and hot topics with a mix of celebrities from the film, music, sports and television.
