History[edit]

The Breakfast Club was established December 2010 on Power 105.1 as a local morning show.[2] In April 2013, Premiere Networks (WWPR-FM's corporate cousin through owner Clear Channel Communications, now iHeartMedia) launched a weekend version of the show, Weekends with the Breakfast Club, which is a Top 20 Countdown. Four months later, The Breakfast Club was rolled out into syndication.[3] Since March 2014, The Breakfast Club has been simulcast on REVOLT.[4]
