Wendy Williams Invites America to 'Say It Like You Mean It'

Los Angeles, CA -- "The Wendy Williams Show" is bringing the fun and excitement of the popular daytime talk show on the road for the summer with the launch of the "Say It Like You Mean It Summer Tour." This multi-
city tour will feature daytime star and New York Times-bestselling author Wendy Williams traveling across the country and meeting fans and new friends alike. "The Wendy Williams Show" begins its third season in national syndication on September 12, 2011.

Beginning August 4, 2011, Williams will hit the road, bringing her irrepressible good humor and authentic attitude directly to the American people.

She will also throw out the first pitch at a Tampa Bay Rays' baseball game.

In many markets, Williams will ride into town on a specially designed and decorated bus.

Every stop on the summer tour will feature Williams interacting and having fun with local residents.

"Taking Wendy on the road provides a great chance to introduce her to new audiences and it's a wonderful promotional opportunity for our partner stations around the country," saidDebmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein.
