The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee on Pushing Past Sexism in Radio

Well friends, it’s the end of Season 2 and it’s been ah-mazing. The women I’ve talked to for the past 10 weeks have been so much fun, and this week’s guest is no different: We’re closing it out with one of my favorite media personalities, Brooklyn’s own Angela Yee.

As co-host of the nationally syndicated, wildly popular radio show, The Breakfast Club, and host of her own popular show, Lip Service, Angela has been a staple in the hip hop media game for the nearly a decade. In our conversation, we talk about what she’s learned about negotiation, how she refused to be the “female sidekick” on-air in a male-dominated industry, using your platform for good, pushing past sexism, and how to be respected for your work. And, for fans of The Breakfast Club, we also get a little juicy tea in there about her infamous Gucci Mane and Ray J interviews, plus what it’s like co-hosting with Charlamagne tha God.

It’s a fun and smart interview to leave you with while we take a break and gear up for more conversations. So take a listen, be inspired by Yee’s hard work, and then go get to your own. In the meantime, leave a comment and let me know who you want to hear from next season. Can’t wait, y’all.

Follow Angela Yee on Instagram, Twitter, and check out her show, Lip Service.
