Cynthia Nixon will appear on “The Wendy Williams Show” for her first national TV interview as a gubernatorial candidate.
Nixon, who is gearing up for a New York election race against two-term Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo, will make her appearance on the show on Wednesday.
Nixon’s campaign spokesperson Rebecca Katz told Variety,“We win by getting her in front of voters, because we actually want them to see the real Cynthia,” Katz told Variety. “And that’s what we get with Wendy. Her viewers are a large and crucial part of the electorate, and her show reaches all corners of the state.”
Williams’ show isn’t known for its political coverage and devotes its segments to dishing on celebrities and pop culture. However, the show averages two million viewers per day and is a popular program throughout the state including in key cities such as New York City, Albany, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse.
Nixon last appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” in 2012 to discuss “Sex and the City” and the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Wit.”
