Several hours after sending a cryptic tweet about The Breakfast Club being over as we know it, Angela Yee confirmed that she's leaving the show.
The longtime co-host explained that she'll be hosting her own show starting this fall and will remain on The Breakfast Club until then.
“This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for years now, since way before the pandemic,” said Yee on the radio Wednesday, August 10. “I had actually sat down with our big boss, Thea [Mitchem], and I was telling her like, ‘Look, I really want to have my own show.’ “You know I have my podcast Lip Service and I was thinking I would be able to get something like a weekend situation. You know, one day ease into having my own show again; I did come from Sirius where I had The Morning After with Angela Yee, and then came here.
“So it’s always been a goal of mine to have that," she added. "And so I thought that I would still be on here and then do that show as well. But years later, they approached me up here at iHeart, Thea had a sit down with me, and told me that they’re gonna give me my very own show. I wasn’t sure what was happening when she first told me, but I am going to be leaving The Breakfast Club. You guys, obviously, will continue on and it’ll be a different iteration of The Breakfast Club, but I will have my own show up here at iHeart as well, so I’ll be part of the family.”
Now, we'll have to see if a new host will be joining DJ Envy and Charlamagne tha God. Any reaction to Yee's news?
