Angela Yee announced the apparent cancellation of The Breakfast Club, Power 105.1’s popular morning radio show in New York City.
Yee, 46, tweeted on Tuesday, “The breakfast club as you know it is officially over,” about 15 minutes after her cryptic tweet: “GOD is good!”
The breakfast club as you know it is officially over ??

Yee didn’t give any explanation for her tweets, which prompted her followers to speculate that the show’s aging hosts are being replaced with younger, fresher faces.
They’re mad at the plight Charlamagne has taken i bet! He’s doing God’s work and anybody doing that will be muzzled and silenced. Not to say Angela & DJ Envy aren’t but the antagonist @cthagod has completely evolved as a man and you know how they say “it’s not a good look”

Yee co-hosted the long-running morning show with DJ Envy (left) and Charlamagne (right), both 44.
According to Neilsen data, The Breakfast Club pulls in 8 million listeners each month, but the radio station’s audience demographic skews much younger than the co-hosts.
There has been talk for years that The Breakfast Club‘s co-hosts were out of touch with their audience.
Then came damaging rape rumors involving Charlamagne and a teenage girl from his past. His problematic views on Black women caused many listeners to tune out.
Charlamagne rode out the controversies and was rewarded with his own late night talk show on Comedy Central that still hasn’t found an audience.
His “Charlamagne & Friends” talk show was canceled after one season.
