Radio personality Angela Yee Leaves Breakfast Club radio show to start her own gig
It was announced that Angela Yee leaves Breakfast Club, the popular American syndicated morning radio show based in New York City. With a recorded Saturday morning edition, the program has broadcasted live on weekday mornings for the past 12 years with discussions about the hip hop industry along with celebrity gossip.
Earlier this week, Angela Yee posted a message on Twitter that led some followers to conclude that The Breakfast Club was ending. The tweet included the heart hands emoji and the words “The Breakfast Club as you know it is officially over.” This led many, including us, to believe Angela Yee leaves Breakfast Club with only Charlamagne Tha God and EJ Envy as the only two remaining hosts for the show. No confirmation has been made about who will be replacing Yee.
In brighter news, Yee will be launching her own daily radio show, Way Up With Angela Yee. According to iHeartRadio, Yee will continue to work on The Breakfast Club until the fall premiere of her new show. “Having a nationally syndicated show, and having somebody in my position, a woman, a Black woman up here, it’s a rarity,” said Yee.
In 2020, the Radio Hall Of Fame inducted The Breakfast Club. “The Breakfast Club is not only a show, but a platform, a spotlight, a think-tank for all things hip-hop/pop-culture, politics, and community,” reads the induction description.
Yee previously hosted The Morning After With Angela Yee, a morning program on SiriusXM. Her new nationally syndicated daily show, Way Up With Angela Yee, will also be produced by iHeartRadio.
As Angela Yee leaves Breakfast Club, she believes The Breakfast Club will move forward. “You guys obviously will continue on, and it’ll be a different iteration of The Breakfast Club,” said Yee. “So it is really exciting. I mean, I really, honestly can’t believe it.”
