Angela Yee Exists ‘The Breakfast Club’
Angela Yee, the longtime co-host of the hit radio show The Breakfast Club, is leaving the morning show to launch her own solo weekday broadcast with iHeartRadio.
“This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for years now, since way before the pandemic,” Yee said on air during Wednesday’s broadcast of The Breakfast Club.
“As far as having a nationally syndicated show, and somebody in my position — a woman, a Black woman — up here, it’s a rarity, and it’s a great opportunity...
And it’s not something that I take lightly, so I’m really excited.” she said.
DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God will continue to host The Breakfast Club after Yee leaves later this fall, timed to the launch of her show.
Yee has been a co-host on The Breakfast Club since its launch in 2010 and has received a number of awards for her nearly two-decade career in radio.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Yee began her radio career in 2005 with SiriusXM and has interviewed guests like President Barack Obama, Vice President Kamala Harris, amd more.
