On Tuesday night, Angela Yee took to social media with an announcement that The Breakfast Club we knew would be no longer. The cryptic tweet led fans to believe that it was the end of the road for the Power 105.1 show, however, Angela Yee took to the air this morning what was really going on.

The 12-year host announced that she was leaving The Breakfast Club and launching her own nationally syndicated radio show, Way Up With Angela Yee, on iHeartMedia.

“I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement to have this once in a lifetime opportunity to create a brand-new show,” said Yee. “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!”

As to what’s next for The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy will still remain hosts. Angela Yee states she will also still continue her podcast, Lip Service.
