The long-running daytime talk show recently aired its final episode.

Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams officially ended her 13-season TV run of The Wendy Williams Show on Friday (June 17) and is ready to begin the next chapter of her career.

Extra’s Billy Bush reports that Williams is "heading off into the world of podcasts, with iTunes."

According to Bush, Williams had an amicable meeting with the show’s producers, Mort Marcus and Ira Berstein of Debmar-Mercury, and agreed that it was time to part ways.
