Late Tuesday night, Angela Yee sent out a cryptic tweet about the future of The Breakfast Club.
She said the popular morning show that airs on iHeart Media will “end as we know it” without explaining what exactly she meant.
On Wednesday morning during the Breakfast Club Angela, she gave further clarification, alongside Charlamagne Tha God (real name Lenard McKelvey) and DJ Envy (real name Raashaun Casey).
“I am going to be leaving the Breakfast Club. It’ll be a different iteration of the Breakfast Club, but I will have my own daily show,” Yee said.
“It is really exciting, I honestly can’t believe this is happening,”
According to The Root – Yee said details of her new show, such as what time it will air, the start date and how many markets it will be syndicated to aren’t yet finalized. She didn’t give a date for her last Breakfast Club broadcast.
Yee’s blew up Twitter with speculation about her departure with two cryptic tweets late Tuesday. “God is good,” she wrote in the first before dropping this: “The breakfast club as you know it is officially over.”

“Actually, my contract is up now,” she said. “It’s been up since December.”
All three of the show’s hosts have been moving their brands in different directions in recent years.
In addition to his expanded iHeart deal, Charlamagne also hosts “The God’s Honest Truth” on Comedy Central. DJ Envy is a real estate investor who hosts seminars on his strategies around the country, and Yee hosts “Lip Service”, a podcast about sex and relationships distributed by Apple Podcasts.
