After 12 years, Angela Yee announces she’s leaving The Breakfast Club to host her own radio show.

After 12 years, Angela Yee announced live on air that she’s leaving The Breakfast Club morning show to host her own radio show on iHeart.

YEE: Years later they approached me up here at iHeart they had a sit down with me and tell me that they are going to give me my very own show. And so part of that is I wasn't sure what was happening when she first told me, but I am going to be leaving The Breakfast Club. You guys obviously will continue on and you know it'll be a different iteration of The Breakfast Club but I will have my own show up here. I heart as well so I'll be

CHARLAMAGNE: So when you say your own show, like a Daily Show.

YEE: Yes like a Daily Show, a nationally syndicated Daily Show

CHARLAMAGNE: And Lip Service,

YEE: And my podcast Lip Service

DJ ENVY: Sir, would you let her do it?

CHARLAMAGNE: What I'm asking questions! I been waiting all day to ask questions.

YEE: Honestly, can't believe it. I know it took a long time to make this happen. So I want to thank everybody at iHeart. But of course mostly I really want to thank first and foremost the listeners who are part of our breakfast club family. We've been doing this for 12 years now and so, this is just a tremendous opportunity. I feel extremely grateful, extremely blessed to be able to get something that, you know, is really monumental up here because, you know, as far as having a nationally syndicated show and somebody in my position, a woman, a black woman up here, I don't know. I mean, it's a rarity And it's a great opportunity and it's not something that I take lightly.
