It’s a homecoming of sorts for Charlamagne Tha God as Cumulus Media hip-hop/R&B “Z93 Jamz” WWWZ Charleston, SC places the Premiere Networks-syndicated “The Breakfast Club” in mornings. The personality hails from Moncks Corner, SC and began his radio career at the station as an intern. He’s joined on the program by co-hosts DJ Envy and Angela Yee.
“The Breakfast Club” replaces the Reach Media-syndicated “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” which segues to adult R&B sister “Magic 107.3” WMGL. The Smiley show includes Da Brat, Gary With Da Tea, Special K and Rock-T.
“The Rickey Smiley Morning Show has been an absolute beast in mornings with a legacy of #1 wins on Z93 Jamz. As the show moves to its new home on our adult sister station Magic107.3, the laughter, music and commitment to the community continues. Rickey Smiley is a true professional and passes the torch to The Breakfast Club on Z93 Jamz,” PD Kathy Brown said in a release. “We are so excited to have The Breakfast Club on our station with Charlamagne Tha God, a Monck’s Corner, South Carolina, native. The show aligns with our target demographic and reflects the hip-hop culture that has a strong voice across the country. The Breakfast Club is the voice that needs to be heard on Z93 Jamz.”
“The Breakfast Club” was previously cleared in the market on Saga Communications “99.3 The Box,” which airs on the Charleston-licensed translator W257BQ with programming originating on WXST-HD2. At WMGL, Smiley replaces “Rick & Sasha,” which was discontinued by Westwood One in April.
