“The Breakfast Club” is still a trio, but already Charlamagne Tha God has to address questions about co-host Angela Yee’s impending departure from the syndicated radio show. Yee, along with Charlamagne and DJ Envy, are the original hosts of the long-running program, but all that is set to change early next year.
Yee announced she would be leaving after posting a cryptic message on Twitter on Aug. 9 that read, “ ‘The Breakfast Club’ as you know it is officially over.” While on-air the following day, she shared the exciting news that she would soon be launching her own show, “Way Up With Angela Yee.”
Despite the hosts talking in detail about Charlamange and Envy remaining on the show, there are some fans who still have a sneaky suspicion that Yee will not be the only host to move on. “I’m not going away. Envy is not going away,” said the “Black Privilege” author.
In a recent interview, he added that rounding out the morning talk show without Yee would not be an easy feat. “Angela Yee can’t be replaced, but we are a club. So that club has to expand, and we’re going to bring in new members. So if people are wondering, ‘Are there going to be new members in ‘The Breakfast Club?’ Yes. I don’t think it’s gonna be one person. It might be two,” he told MadameNoire. Fans have already thrown a few names out there of individuals they think could hold their own with Charlamagne and Envy. Charlamagne added that his contract with the show does not expire until 2025.
While he may be staying put at his home on 105.1FM, Charlamagne is not passing up new career opportunities. He scored interviews with some of Hollywood’s heavy hitters for The Hollywood Reporter’s series “Emerging Hollywood.” He also has his own show, “Hell of a Week,” on Comedy Central. The late-night talk show was formerly known as “Tha God’s Honest Truth.”
