*BET has partnered with iHeartMedia to air daily episodes of the “Breakfast Club” radio show hosted by Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy. Former co-host Angela Yee left the show last year and now hosts her own weekday radio show, “Way Up with Angela Yee.”
BET will air a one-hour edition of the “Breakfast Club” at 9 a.m. ET weekdays starting April 17, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“We’re thrilled to partner with iHeartMedia to bring The Breakfast Club and their unique brand of entertainment and cultural commentary to our audiences,” said BET CEO and president Scott Mills in a statement.
“We recognize the show’s influence and popularity, and we are confident that the partnership will be meaningful to our viewers and to our partners. Hosts Charlamagne and DJ Envy are longtime members of the BET and Paramount family, so we couldn’t be more excited to welcome The Breakfast Club home to BET,” Mills continued.

John Sykes, president of entertainment enterprises at iHeartMedia, said “What began as a daily morning radio show over a decade ago in New York City, has now become a cultural beacon across America. This new partnership with BET will expand the radio show’s reach to millions more watching on this iconic television network.”
BET’s “Breakfast Club” will feature interviews and popular segments from the long-running New York radio show on Power 105.1-FM.
“BET has been the home of so many cultural institutions, like Rap City and 106 & Park, that have shaped a generation,” said Charlamagne Tha God. “Those shows laid the foundation for The Breakfast Club to stand on and grow into the cultural institution that we have become. We look forward to carrying on the tradition.”
Added DJ Envy, “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to showcase The Breakfast Club on BET. I love what the new BET is doing!”
BET’s “Breakfast Club” show will be its first daytime program and first daily show since “106 & Park” ended in 2014.
