The breakfast club as you know it is officially over 🏽

Radio personality, Angela Yee can now wake up a little bit later starting this fall as she will be hosting her own midday radio show! The new midday show will be titled, Way Up with Angela Yee. The show will debut this fall airing across more than 30 iHeartMedia stations, including New York’s Power 105.1. The show will also be available for syndication via Premiere Networks.
“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 written statement. “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!”
Way Up with Angela Yee will continue her tradition of interacting with her fans as she talks about the day’s topics “from relationships to Hip-Hop and R&B, headline news topics, and overall culture, both in and out of the music industry.”
Her show will also feature celebrity interviews along with special guests appearing to speak with her.
“Angela Yee is a Powerhouse! She’s a businesswoman, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and a highly-entertaining, smart and witty talent who will go down as one of the greats of her generation. We are thrilled to have her lead this new show,” said Thea Mitchem, iHeartMedia Executive Vice President of Programming. “Angela has her finger on the pulse of entertainment and culture, and I look forward to watching her bring her positive outlook and even more great content to her devoted listeners in new and influential ways.”
With this latest move, Yee’s podcast, Angela Yee’s Lip Service will also be available through the iHeartPodcast Network.
