Angela Yee shocked fans of The Breakfast Club earlier this month when she announced her departure from the show earlier this month.
Viewers began speculating who would replace the veteran broadcaster and suggested possible replacements. However, according to Charlamagne, Angela Yee “can’t be replaced,” but the show will be undergoing a change, and there may be two people filling the role she left behind.
He discussed the upcoming changes during a recent interview with Madame Noire, and confirmed the show will go on.
“I’m not going away. Envy is not going away. Angela Yee can’t be replaced, but we are a club,” Charlamagne explained. “So that club has to expand and we’re going to bring in new members. So if people are wondering, are there going to be new members in The Breakfast Club? Yes.”
Furthermore, he believes the show might get more than one new addition to the team. “I don’t think it’s gonna be one person. It might be two,” he added.

The show will be fun, entertaining, inspiring, and will include celebrity interviews and special guests,” Power 105.1 announced.
Angela Yee is currently finalizing the details for her new show and said she will remain at The Breakfast Club for at least a month.
