Wendy Williams reminded fans of her radio days with two pictures that she shared with them on her Instagram page.


When this year’s National Radio Day rolled around on August 20, it was celebrated by Wendy Williams. Armed with a claim that her family informed her about the occasion, Williams dropped two throwback images.

The first photo showed the TV host in a radio booth fitted with a mic stand. With a straight glare at the camera, Williams’ face brightened with a smile and her long black hair framed both sides of her face.

Her hair was complemented by a black long-sleeved turtleneck, a blue plaid skirt, and black leggings. Her left elbow rested on a table filled with papers and a flower vase was behind her.

Not one to waste opportunities, Williams used her success as a radio personality to author some books, including “Wendy's Got the Heat.”


As for the second image, Williams appeared to be hosting a show as her red nails held a microphone to her open mouth. Behind her were several types of radio equipment and the radio station’s name and frequency.

The snaps reminded fans of the 56-year-old’s radio journey which began when she joined Northeastern University’s on-campus radio station many years ago. Her journey continued after college when she got a gig at a radio station in St. Croix, Virgin Islands.


In 2008, she was given an even more significant opportunity. She was told to host “The Wendy Williams Experience” which was a syndicated radio show that allegedly had over 12 million listeners.

Not one to waste opportunities, Williams used her success as a radio personality to author some books, including “Wendy's Got the Heat” which is a New York Times best-seller.


She then began hosting her own show on VH1 and by the fall of 2007, Williams started making appearances on NBC's “Today Show.”

As an actress, the mother-of-one has appeared on “Drop Dead Diva,” “One Life to Live,” “Think Like a Man,” and “Think Like A Man Too.”

Even though she had some challenges, she stayed true to her course as a radio personality, TV host, actress, author, and performer. Her hard work eventually paid off when she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2019.

The star, which is under the Television category, was unveiled by Elvis Duran and Jack Abernethy.
