"How You Doin'?" Debmar-Mercury and Wendy Williams Celebrate Ten Years of Success Together

Thu. October 18| 1:45 PM - 2:30 PM | Location: Stage 1

Wendy Williams, host of "The Wendy Williams Show," will receive the NAB Show New York Impact Award on Thursday, October 18, during the 2018 NAB Show New York. The NAB Show New York Impact Award honors the most innovative leaders in media and entertainment for their impact and influence on the overall industry, as well as in the city of New York. Williams will be honored for her 10 years of success as host of "The Wendy Williams Show," which attracts millions of viewers every day and is produced live in New York City. The award also honors Williams for her philanthropic work, notably with The Hunter Foundation and the newly-announced Be Here Initiative. The initiative is a national awareness and call-to-action drug addiction and substance abuse campaign.

Following the award presentation, Wendy Williams and Debmar-Mercury's Co-Presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein will participate in a main stage keynote session to discuss their decade-long partnership. The session will focus on Williams' continued appeal to a large mainstream daytime audience; her unique ability to hold viewers' interest live for an hour a day on her own; and the show's ability to attract top production talent and celebrity guests.
