TV and radio personality Wendy Williams got her start as a radio DJ and host on Hot 97 in New York City. The "shock jockette" was fired and then hired by Philadelphia station Power 99 with the help of her husband at the time Kevin Hunter, who was also her agent. Wendy eventually made her way back to NYC where she worked on the radio until 2009. 

Instead, Wendy shifted her focus to her new daytime talk show The Wendy Williams Show, which made its debut in 2008.
