On Wednesday (August 10), Angela Yee announced her exit from The Breakfast Club. She confirmed the news on the iHeartRadio morning show, after teasing the news the night before in a cryptic tweet.
“I am going to be leaving The Breakfast Club,” she announced on-air. “It’ll be a different iteration of The Breakfast Club, but I will have my own show up here at iHeart.”
“It is really exciting, I honestly can’t believe this is happening,” Yee added. “This is just a tremendous opportunity. I feel extremely grateful and extremely blessed.”
Her new, nationally syndicated radio show Way Up with Angela Yee is slated to begin broadcasting this fall. Yee confirmed that for the next few months, she will continue her hosting duties alongside DJ Envy and Charlamagne the God. After Yee officially exits, they will continue The Breakfast Club. Both co-hosts applauded at the news, and there was no commentary on Yee’s replacement.
“I am extremely happy for Angela Yee, and I am extremely happy for the culture,” shared Charlamagne.
“The Breakfast Club is not going anywhere,” declared DJ Envy.
