Charlamagne Worked w/ Wendy Williams For FREE
What’s the longest you’d ever work at a job that you loved, for free? Popular radio personality Charlamagne Tha God admits that at one point, he worked on Wendy Williams’ radio show for no paycheck. In fact, he says that for a year and a half, he worked on the Wendy Williams Experience for free. He explains,
Like I tell these kids all the time, you gotta recognize opportunity when it’s not a paycheck attached to it. That’s Wendy Williams at the end of the day.
He says that opportunity was clearly worth it saying,
I probably would have never broke into the NY market if I never took that position.
I think Wendy is a decent person and she gave me an opportunity, but she got to ride w/ her husband. Her husband doesn’t have the best character to say the least.
When asked if he wants to resolve his issues with Wendy, he says,
That situation happened. I learned a lot from it and I kept it moving.
If anything, she’s missing out because she could say, ‘That’s mine. I grew that.’
