I think I hit the jackpot when I sat down with Wendy Williams for this CNN Profile.
She may be Exhibit A in the case I’ve been building since I turned 50 to destroy the myth of the 18-49 demographic.
The “demo” is the age group that advertisers having been paying top dollar for on network television for the past half century or so. In fact, some advertisers won’t pay for any audience members outside that demo.
If any advertiser or network executive would like to inform Wendy Williams she will soon be kicked out of your target “demo,” please leave your name and job title in the comments section below. We’d like to hear from you.
For those of you who are as out of touch with daytime popular culture as I am, Wendy is one of America’s most popular TV talk show hosts.
