The Breakfast Club radio show is heading to BET!
The cable outlet, owned by Paramount Global, has joined forces with iHeartMedia to broadcast a daily version of the syndicated radio show hosted by Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy. Starting from April 17th, BET (and VH1, which is its sister network) will air a one-hour episode of the program at 9 a.m. eastern time on weekdays.
“We’re thrilled to partner with iHeartMedia to bring The Breakfast Club and their unique brand of entertainment and cultural commentary to our audiences,” BET’s CEO and president Scott Mills said. “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.”
The new partnership marks the first daily program since the conclusion of 106 & Park in 2014 and its first-ever daytime show. The program will showcase interviews and segments from the radio show, which airs in over 90 markets throughout the nation.
“BET has been the home of so many cultural institutions, like Rap City and 106 & Park, that have shaped a generation,” Charlamagne Tha God said. “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.”
Previously, the program was simulcasted on the Revolt cable channel, but that arrangement came to an end in 2021. Additionally, The Breakfast Club’s YouTube channel, which boasts more than 5 million subscribers, has complete episodes of each day’s show with numerous clips available.
In other news, Paramount Global is considering selling a majority share of its enterprise, comprising VH1, BET Studios, and the BET+ streaming service.
