The controversial host has also been named senior creative officer of Cultural Content and Programming at iHeartMedia
“I give my sincerest thanks to iHeart for empowering me over the past decade to be the best talent that I can be, and for honoring me as an owner and executive,” said Charlamagne in a written statement. “I love the audio business and iHeart is the biggest and best audio company in the world. As co-founder and chief creative officer of the Black Effect Podcast Network and now senior creative officer of Cultural Content and Programming at iHeart, all I want to do for the next 5 years is continue to move the culture of radio and podcasting forward by curating a new era of voices, programming and events. GOD IS GREAT! Now, it’s time to get back to work.”
“Charlamagne is a multi-platform talent, creator, and innovator and we are excited to extend our existing partnership on the nationally syndicated morning show “The Breakfast Club,” while also creating successful new historical ventures like the Black Effect Network,” said Thea Mitchem, EVP of Programming for iHeartMedia. “His voice continues to be unique and authentic and a driving force and influence in today’s hip hop and pop culture.
