THE Breakfast Club co-host Angela Yee has announced her departure from the early morning radio show and has her sights set on a new gig.
The longtime Power 105.1 FM radio host sent shockwaves across social media on Tuesday night when she announced her exit in a cryptic tweet.
“Breakfast club as you know it is officially over,” Yee tweeted.
During Wednesday’s morning show, Yee confirmed her departure after 10 years as she aims to launch her own nationally syndicated daily show for iHeartRadio.
“This is really exciting. I’ve been waiting for this for years, well before the pandemic,” Yee said on the air.
“I did my podcast lip service and thought I might get something like a weekend situation.”
Yee said she was approached by iHeart and was told, “You’re going to give me my very own show.”
Details about Yee’s new show are yet to be announced, but the radio host said the broadcast will begin sometime in the fall.
Yee will be staying with The Breakfast Club for at least another month.
The Power 105.1 show continues with co-hosts Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy.
It’s unknown if Power 105.1 will seek a new co-host to replace Yee, or if the show will continue with just Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy at the helm.
The daily morning radio show is broadcast nationally on more than 100 stations to over eight million listeners each month.
The Breakfast Club was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in August 2020.
