Charlamagne revealed his excitement about his new venture, telling New York Magazine, “Giving me a TV deal, almost ten years ago, didn’t really make any sense,” he said. “I was a radio guy. It’s easy to say, ‘You know what? I think Charlamagne Tha God needs a talk show’ now. But almost ten years ago for him to have that vision, that did a lot for me. A lot of my success right now is because of those looks that I got on MTV2 and Viacom at the time.”
Aside from The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne hosts his own podcast, The Brilliant Idiots, alongside comedian Andrew Schulz. He previously hosted The Guy Code, Charlamagne & Friends, and Uncommon Sense on MTV2. His popular YouTube channel also features one-on-one exclusive interviews with artists like Kanye West and Gucci Mane.
Charlamagne confirmed the news in his own Instagram post.
