Nick Cannon, host of Fox’s breakout The Masked Singer and MTV’s Wild n’ Out, has been set as the first guest host for The Wendy Williams Show. He will be subbing for Williams who recently announced that she is taking an extended break from her syndicated daytime talk show while recovering from a fractured shoulder.
Cannon will host the show Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday February 4-6 as the show returns to originals after the long hiatus. The new, hour-long episodes will include Wendy’s staple Hot Topics segment, “Ask Wendy,” and celebrity interviews.
After airing repeats since before the holidays, The Wendy Williams Show, from distributor and producer Debmar-Mercury, returned to originals this week with a panel of rotating hot talkers.
