‘The Breakfast Club on BET’ Set For April Launch.


The Premiere Networks-syndicated radio show and podcast “The Breakfast Club” is heading for television. A one-hour segment of the show will air weekday mornings at 9am on BET beginning Monday, April 17. The popular morning radio show and podcast will also air on BET’s sister cable TV network VH1. Episodes from the week will all be available to stream Sundays on BET+.


The nationally syndicated morning show, hosted by DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God, originates from iHeartMedia urban contemporary “Power 105.1” WWPR New York.


“What began as a daily morning radio show over a decade ago in New York City, has now become a cultural beacon across America,” iHeartMedia President, Entertainment Enterprises John Sykes said in a release. “This new partnership with BET will expand the radio show’s reach to millions more watching on this iconic television network.”


“The Breakfast Club on BET” marks BET’s return to producing daily programming for the first time since “106 & Park” in 2014. It also marks the network’s introduction to daytime television. “The Breakfast Club” had a previous video simulcast on the Revolt cable channel, which ended in 2021.


“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 CEO and President Scott Mills added. “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 long-time members of the BET and Paramount family, so we couldn’t be more excited to welcome The Breakfast Club home to BET.”


Each episode of "The Breakfast Club on BET” will feature the A-list celebrity interviews that are a mainstay of the broadcast radio edition, as well as the signature segments audiences have come to know and love, like Front Page News, the Rumor Report, and Charlemagne’s Donkey of the Day.


“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to showcase The Breakfast Club on BET,” DJ Envy remarked. “I love what the new BET is doing!”


Charlamagne Tha God added, "BET has been the home of so many cultural institutions, like Rap City and 106 & Park, that have shaped a generation. 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.”
