Sean “Diddy” Combs has spent the past year building and promoting his new music-based television channel, Revolt TV, yet there wasn’t a flagship show to hang its hat on.
That will soon change in 2014.
REVOLT and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announced today that nationally syndicated, award-winning hit radio show on New York’s Power 105, The Breakfast Club, starring Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy, will be televised live Monday through Friday on REVOLT TV beginning by March 3rd, 2014.
“Starting our day with The Breakfast Club brings three more hours of live daily programming to REVOLT’s already expansive real-time coverage of music, music news and culture each day,” said Andy Schuon, president and co-founder of REVOLT.
The Breakfast Club, the award-winning, live morning show stars Charlamagne Tha God, former co-host of The Wendy Williams Experience and current host of MTV2’s Guy Code; Angela Yee, former morning show host on shade 45 at Sirius XM Satellite Radio, and cast member from VH1’s The Gossip Game; and DJ Envy, legendary DJ, mixtape master, and host of MTV2’s Sucker Free and Week in Jams. On weekdays millions of fans can now also watch the hit morning show’s unrivaled interviews and conversations with celebrities and hip-hop artists, entertainment news and fresh music mixes, along with their signature blend of honesty and humor.
“Taking this award-winning Power 105 morning show and extending its reach to television reinforces Clear Channel[‘s] position as a preeminent multi-platform entertainment company,” said John Sykes, president of Entertainment Enterprises for Clear Channel. “We are a company that creates incredible, original content every day and we are excited to partner on this with a true visionary like Sean Combs.”
Launched in December 2010, The Breakfast Club was named the No. 1 radio program in the nation by The Source magazine. It’s also widely regarded as one of the most informative and entertaining urban morning shows today.
“We are proud of this new partnership with Clear Channel; adding radio as a medium to the REVOLT arsenal will help push the traditional boundaries of music on television and expand our reach even further with millions of new listeners and viewers, which is incredible for a fledgling network,” stated Keith Clinkscales, REVOLT CEO.
