The Breakfast Club Returns to Atlanta on the New 92.3 and 96.7 "The Beat"

The Beat now gives the ATL four hip hop stations. The three other stations playing current and recurrent hip hop are V-103, Hot 107.9 and Streetz 94.5. Two other stations, OG 97.9 and Boom 102.9 play classic hip hop songs from the '80s to the '00s.

The Los Angles based morning show Big Boy's Neighborhood will be heard on the station also.

iHeartMedia Atlanta announced today the debut of The Beat, the new home of Hip Hop N’ R&B for Atlanta broadcasted on both 92.3 and 96.7. The station launched today, with popular shows The Breakfast Club and Big Boy’s Neighborhood to begin on December 5.

92.3 and 96.7 The Beat kicked off with “10,000 joints in a row” commercial-free, playing hits from major Hip Hop and R&B artists like Drake, Future, 2 Chainz, Usher, Jay-Z, Beyoncé and more.

“We are the A’s new home for Hip Hop and R&B,” said Brian Michel, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia’s Atlanta Region. “To have the station bookended by Hip Hop’s crown jewels, The Breakfast Club in the morning and Big Boy’s Neighborhood in the evening, makes for an amazing lineup for our listeners. We are excited to finalize the rest of our lineup with the best and brightest local talent.”

92.3 & 96.7 The Beat listeners will wake up to The Breakfast Club, The World’s Most Dangerous Morning Show. The nationally syndicated, award-winning talk show is set to air on 92.3 & 96.7 The Beat beginning this month and features DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God. The Breakfast Club will broadcast weekday mornings from 5:30 – 10:00 a.m.

In addition, national Hip Hop icon Big Boy will host weekday evenings on 92.3 & 96.7 The Beat with Big Boy’s Neighborhood airing from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. ET. Joined on-air by Natalia Perez, Louie G, Ayyde and DJ VickOne, Big Boy welcomes the biggest names in music and entertainment, plays the hottest music and keeps listeners laughing with hilarious bits, including the infamous phonetaps with “Luther Luffeigh.”

“This is an exciting and powerful addition to the iHeartMedia Atlanta portfolio,” said Justin Schaflander, President for iHeartMedia’s Atlanta Region. “To be able to get into this format in arguably the nation’s capital of Hip Hop will be a game-changer for our listeners and our clients.”

The full programming lineup for 92.3 & 96.7 The Beat will be announced soon.

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
