Angela Yee, one of the long-time hosts of the popular Breakfast Club radio show, confirmed on Wednesday morning that she will be leaving the program. She is staying in the iHeartRadio family to launch her own show.
After tweeting The Breakfast Club as you know it is officially over, Yee stirred up Breakfast Club fans on Tuesday night, leading listeners to believe that the show was over. On Wednesday morning s episode, she clarified that The Breakfast Club will continue without her with co-hosts Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy.
After making the announcement, Yee said on Twitter that she will still be a part of The Breakfast Club for at least a month. She said she will be a daily, nationally syndicated radio show, even though she didn't give away details of her new show.
This is really exciting," she said on Wednesday. I have been waiting for this kind of thing for a long time, way before the Pandemic. I had actually sat down with my big boss and I was telling her, Like, Look, I really wanna have my own show. I have my podcast, Lip Service, and I was thinking that I would be able to get a weekend situation. They approached me at iHeart and told me that they are going to give me my very own show. In 2010, DJ Envy, Charlamagne and Yee founded The Breakfast Club on New York City Power 105.1 as a morning show. In 2013 iHeartMedia expanded the program into a weekend version, and in 2014 it began to simulcast on the Revolt TV network. In 2020, Nielsen reported that The Breakfast Club was getting eight million listeners a day, and was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame.
