Angela Yee Announces New Show Amid The Breakfast Club Departure

After 12 years, Angela Yee is saying goodbye to The Breakfast Club and hello to new opportunities with iHeart.

Celebrity News

On August 10, Angela Yee announced that she is officially leaving Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club after 12 years. The radio show host initially tweeted about her departure last night which sent social media into a tailspin. “The breakfast club as you know it is officially over,” she tweeted.

This morning, however, she further explained her tweet and why she decided to leave the popular morning show. “This is really exciting but this is something that I’ve been wanting to do for years now since way before the pandemic,” she said.

The Brooklyn native explained that she sat down with her boss at iHeart, which is owned by Power 105.1, and shared her desire to have her own show. She originally introduced the idea of having a weekend show while still co-hosting The Breakfast Club but iHeart had other ideas.

“Years later they approached me up here at iHeart, Thea had a sitdown with me, and they told me that they are going to give me my very own show,” she revealed.

“It will be a different iteration of The Breakfast Club but I will have my own show up here at iHeart as well, so I will be a part of the family.”

The radio personality’s new daily show is reportedly titled Way Up with Angela Yee and it will be nationally syndicated. The 46-year-old’s podcast Lip Service will also go into national syndication while joining the iHeart family.

During the announcement, she thanked the listeners for their support and shared how “monumental” this occasion is for her.

“This is just a tremendous opportunity. I feel extremely grateful, extremely blessed to be able to get something that is really monumental up here,” she said. “Because as far as having a nationally syndicated show, and somebody in my position, a woman, a Black woman up here, it’s a rarity and it’s a great opportunity and it’s not something that I take lightly. So, I’m really excited.”

Angela didn’t give much more details other than the show airing this fall. She will remain on The Breakfast Club in the meantime.

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.
