DJ Akademiks reacts to Angela Yee leaving The Breakfast Club.
Just recently, Angela Yee announced that she was leaving The Breakfast Club, and she first confused fans by hinting at the end of the popular Power 105.1 show. “The breakfast club as you know it is officially over,” she wrote, along with heart-shaped hands emoji.

Now DJ Akademiks sat down with VladTv where he was asked about the departure of Yee from the show. “Radio is finished,” he said. “First of all, I think the announcement was kinda weird. I listened to their explanation. They said it was to figure out who was against them but like it didn’t feel like everybody was on the same page. It felt like one person leaving the band, but kinda not wanting the band to continue.”
He continued, “Imagine if Offset left the Migos and said, ‘The Migos are done’ like no… Quavo still rocking, whatchu mean? You’re just leaving. Now granted that’s a whole different story where the Migos are kinda just seen as them, same with The Breakfast Club. I just think radio is different now man. I think radio and radio personalities has almost gotten killed.”
“I think we’re just not in that era no more,” AK added. “I think radio is just all about selling ads, which pretty much most businesses are, but they’re in such a safe space where it’s like, it’s not in their benefit to really empower. What we saw early Breakfast Club with Charlamagne being so edgy, that’s done. Who put their brand behind someone like that like a big company at this point?”
“But like when you think about what radio now is, that whole announcement to me was like I’m happy for her, but in reality I know Angela Yee. Angela Yee kinda brought in s*x talk on Sirius.”
Angela Yee later announced that she will be with iHeartRadio and launch her new show called “Way Up with Angela Yee.” “This is really exciting,” she said on Wednesday. “This is something that I’ve been waiting to do for years now, way before the pandemic. I had actually sat down with our big boss… and I was telling her, like, ‘Look, I really wanna have my own show.’ You know, I have my podcast ‘Lip Service’ and I was thinking I would be able to get something like a weekend situation… “They approached me at iHeart… and told me that they are gonna give me my very own show.”
