Angela Yee officially quits ‘The Breakfast Club’ after 12 years on the radio show
Radio show host Angela Yee has bid farewell to Power 105.1’s national show, “The Breakfast Club,” after 12 years.
On Friday, Yee appeared on her final episode of the show, which she hosted with Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy. His co-hosts each gave tributes celebrating the media personality’s influence on radio.
“Job well done,” Charlamagne tha God said on air. “They can never take away what we have built. We all wrote history together as a radio show.
“I will miss my sister,” added DJ Envy.
Yee, Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy hosted the first episode of “The Breakfast Club” when the show launched in December 2010. The trio interviewed countless notable guests, musicians, actors and politicians. The show faced controversy for some of its segments and had many hits.
In 2020, “The Breakfast Club” was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame. President Joe Biden appeared on the show months before he was elected that same year.
Yeah announced their plans leaving the show on Twitter in August, writing, “Breakfast Club as you know is officially over.”
She’s launching her nationally streamed show on iHeartMedia called “Way Up With Angela Yee” in early 2023, she told Variety in a post Friday. She also co-hosts a podcast called “Lip Service.”
Yee said she hopes her new role will allow her to support and mentor other black women entering the media industry.
“I’m thinking about who’s going to follow me and who’s next, who I can help mentor, and all of those things are exciting to me,” she told Variety. “I hope later in life there’s a bunch of other black female radio personalities who can say, ‘Angela gave me my chance,’ or ‘Angela helped me do that.’ , or “Angela hooked me up with this person.
She continued, “I think that’s what really matters a lot, not just what you did for yourself but for others, also how you spread the love.”
