After inking a TV talk show deal, and amid his soaring stardom as a political pundit, there was much speculation Charlamagne tha God would leave his radio show “The Breakfast Club”.
But the NY Post reports he has signed a new, very lucrative five-year deal to remain with iHeartMedia.
This means that Charlamagne will stay on as host of the nationally syndicated “The Breakfast Club,” which he has fronted for 10 years — plus the media and entertainment firm is giving him an expanded role as an executive.
Charlamagne will continue to host “Weekends with The Breakfast Club,” a three-hour weekly program featuring a countdown of the top 20 songs on the charts and signature interviews, in addition to a new quarterly and exclusive one-on-one interview show.
He’s also coming off the heels of a successful launch of his “Black Effect Podcast” network, a 50/50 joint venture with iHM — which has already garnered 10 million downloads — making his one of the biggest deals in syndicated radio history.
He exclusively told The NY Post's Page Six about his decision to stay at iHeart — amid numerous other offers from TV networks and media outlets, “iHeart has shown me that they have my back. It’s a great partnership and great partnerships are very hard to find, especially in this era that we are in right now.
