The announcement comes as sources have revealed the former radio DJ has not quit or been fired from her own chat show.
As OK! previously reported, although Williams' television fate has not been sealed — production is not expecting her to ever return to the set.
"Production is running out the clock with all these guest hosts," an insider close to production told The Sun. "They’re literally just waiting for the season to end, and after that, it’s gone."
"If she’s officially fired or quits," the source continued, "All those stations could potentially pull out of the contract."
To make matters worse, the media mogul — who has battled complications due to Graves disease — has completely closed herself off from production in the past few months.
"She hasn’t been talking to anybody, not producers, not senior producers- no one," a source dished. "She has disappeared and the only line of contact production has is through her manager. Her manager is an ex-cop, so they like him because he can be a police man for her."
"She's isolated herself from everyone and isn’t talking to anybody connected to the show," the insider close to the star revealed. "I don't think she's ever going to come back to the studio."
