New York–Earlier this week radio legend Angela Yee announced via twitter that the famous Hip-Hop radio show ‘The Breakfast Club,’ would soon be over–adding “as we know it.” This alluded to the continuance of the show, with her spot being replaced.

The tweet was followed up with Yee’s an on-air announcement the following morning at ‘The Breakfast Club,’ that she would be moving on to host her own nationally syndicated radio show.

“I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement to have this once in a lifetime opportunity to create a brand-new show,” said Yee in a news release. “I appreciate everyone who has helped to make this happen at iHeartMedia, and most importantly, the listeners who are like family to me. 

It’s a bittersweet feeling to leave an iconic show like ‘The Breakfast Club,’ which we built from the ground up for 12 years, but we will forever be an extension of each other. I’m working hard and dedicated to making our new program exciting, thoughtful, provocative, and most importantly, a safe haven for even more of us to grow and learn while having fun. I’m ready for this new chapter!”

“I sat down with Thea and shared how I always wanted to have my own show,” Yee said to co-hosts Dj Envy and Charlemagne Tha God on Wednesday’s broadcast.

“This is something I’ve been wanting to for years now, way before the pandemic. It’s always been a goal of mine.”

Her new weekday broadcast called “Way Up with Angela Yee,” is a midday program launching fall 2022 across more than 30 iHeartMedia stations, including New York’s Power 105.1.

“Way Up with Angela Yee,” will be available for syndication through Premiere Networks to stations across the country.

Joining The Breakfast Club in 2010, the past 12 years has served Yee incredibly well on the platform. The show, along with her weekly podcast Lip Service has become a staple in mainstream culture (Essence).

Yee is half Chinese and Black and she was raised in the Flatbush area of New York City.

In addition to hosting her own radio show prior to ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Yee had an internship with Wu-Tang Management as CEO Divine’s assistant.
