Angela Yee, one of the veteran radio hosts on the “Breakfast Club,” announced Wednesday that she will be leaving the show!
She will, meanwhile, remain a member of the iHeartRadio family to begin her own show.
“The breakfast club as you know it is officially over,” Yee tweeted, causing social media to go into a frenzy.
After fans started to speculate that the widely loved radio show is coming to an end, she stressed, however, that the show will continue with co-hosts Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy.
The Brooklyn native also tweeted that she would continue to be a host of “The Breakfast Club” for “at least a month.”
An Instagram account going by “Way Up with Yee” has been created shortly after her announcement, confirming that it is the name of her latest show.
She then stated that her new program will be a daily, nationally syndicated radio broadcast without going into further detail.
“This is something that I’ve been waiting to do for years now, way before the pandemic,” Yee explained. “I had actually sat down with our big boss…and I was telling her, like, ‘Look, I really wanna have my own show.’”
Yee, Charlamagne, and DJ Envy debuted “The Breakfast Club” in 2010 as a morning program on New York City’s Power 105.1.
The show was given a weekend edition by iHeartMedia in 2013, and in 2014, it started to simultaneously air on the Revolt TV network.
“The Breakfast Club” had eight million daily listeners in 2020 and had been accepted into the Radio Hall of Fame.
We wish Angela Yee much success with her future endeavors!
