Wendy William won’t have live audience until Coronavirus is over
With the rising precautions and fear of coronavirus (COVID-19), many shows and concerts have been canceled or going through some change. Among them is also Wendy Williams’ show. Her show will not have any in-studio audience until further notice. A spokesperson of the show told People in a statement:
“Wendy values her co-hosts and their daily participation but in light of the current health climate, The Wendy Williams Show will not have a live studio audience until further notice. We will continue to produce a daily live talk show. And look forward to welcoming the studio audience back when the time is right.”
In fact, staff members filled the studio. There were about three dozen people. And the ones not seen right now in the front are backstage pushing buttons to make the show happen. Wendy praised them and said these are the people who support her and the show. Another source told CNN, that the decision came about for seniors in the audience. Because senior citizens are the ones at most risk of complications for the coronavirus.
