Charlamagne tha god claims he has other "potential deals" lined up when he exits Power 105.1 morning show "The Breakfast Club" after his contract expires.
Rumors swirled last month that the 41-year-old radio host, real name Lenard McKelvey, and his co-hosts Angela Yee, 45, and DJ Envy, 42, were considering leaving the show.
McElvey founded the show in 2010 after he was fired from the popular Wendy Williams Show on WBLS. McElvey and his co-hosts have been hinting about leaving The Breakfast Club.
"He loves working for iHeart Radio, but he is contemplating his next move," a source [read: Charlamagne] tells Page Six. "There are a lot of potential deals in the air, and he just wants to keep his options open and think strategically."
Years before The Breakfast Club, McKelvey was accused of rape by a then-15-year-old girl in South Carolina. The charges were mysteriously dropped.
McElvey is married but his radio career has been plagued by down low rumors.
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh announced he is battling "advanced" lung cancer. The talk radio icon shared the shocking news on his syndicated show on Monday.
"I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn't have to tell you," the 69-year-old cigar smoker said, according to The Hill. "It's a struggle for me, because I had to inform my staff earlier today. I can't help but feel that I'm letting everybody down... The upshot is that I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer."
Limbaugh, who is widely viewed as one of President Donald Trump's most influential media allies, will be seeking treatment this week, but he hopes to return to work on Thursday.
Ending his broadcast, Limbaugh revealed that his 31-year run as the host of his popular radio show has brought him "greatness, satisfaction and happiness", adding, "Every day I'm not here, I'll be missing you (listeners) and thinking about you."
Limbaugh signed a contract extension with Premiere Networks last month, ahead of his diagnosis.
