iHeartMedia and Premiere Networks will launch the national midday show “Way Up with Angela Yee” on Monday, February 6.
Announced last August when Yee announced plans to depart Premiere’s “The Breakfast Club”, the program will air on Hip Hop/R&B stations nationally from 10am to 2pm weekdays from iHeart’s new New York studios. Yee had been part of The Breakfast Club since the show launched on Hip Hop “Power 105.1” WWPR in December 2010. She also spent five years at SiriusXM’s “Shade 45” as part of its morning show first with Cipha Sounds and then solo.
Among the stations where the show is debuting today are 107.5 WGCI Chicago, “105.3 The Beat” WRDA Atlanta, “Power 99” WUSL Philadelphia, 97.9 WJLB Detroit, and “103 Jamz” WOWI Norfolk.
Way Up with Yee soft-launched this week on WWPR with blogger/host Jasmine Brand serving as guest co-host. The program will debut on Monday nationally including the majority of iHeart’s Hip Hop stations.
