An Inside Look at The Breakfast Club from Ebony Magazine

Checking In with The Breakfast Club by Erika N. Goodman 

The New York City morning crew bills themselves as "the world's most dangerous radio show." So what's behind their microphone magic?

The World’s Most Dangerous Morning Show” is a brash yet telling promotional tagline for WWPR-FM Power 105’s The Breakfast Club (TBC), the New York City radiocast that has even the most established artists a bit anxious. A stark contrast to its innocent-sounding throwback-to-the-’80s name, the program is fortified by its hard-nosed hosts who, with the flicker of their purple “On Air” sign, can make or break a celebrity’s career.

It’s 5:21 a.m., and the entire squad is in full-on prep mode at the station, gearing up for their 6 to 10 a.m. time slot. A small army of hair and makeup artists is priming Yee. Envy is toting a Louis Vuitton logo backpack while adjusting the laces on his Nike Air Jordan classic kicks and correcting an assistant about what yogurt he prefers. The third and characteristically most outspoken voice, Charlamagne, is busy wrestling with a fellow staffer, breaking up the shenanigans to inquire about a guest’s schedule ...
