Media Personality & Entrepreneur, Host, Way Up with Angela Yee
Award-winning media personality Angela Yee currently co-hosts Power 105.1’s nationally syndicated radio show The Breakfast Club. Over the past 11 years, the trio’s undeniable impact on the culture has garnered several accolades including their induction into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2020. Yee also co-hosts the popular relationship/sex podcast Lip Service. Outside of media, Angela has tapped into her entrepreneurial spirit with several endeavors centered around giving back to her community and providing access to nutrition, financial literacy, education, and culture. She owns the Juices For Life juice bar in Brooklyn, New York, has a line of organic pressed juices called Drink Fresh Juice distributed in grocers across the country, and co-founded Coffee Uplifts People (CUP)—a majority Black-owned coffee company with a brick-and-mortar location in Brooklyn. In 2018, the New York City mayor officially designated August 28th as Angela Yee Day, which is her annual community event (held in Brooklyn), spotlighting local Black-owned businesses and Black and Caribbean music artists. In 2020, she launched the Angela Yee’s Book Club literacy initiative with WellRead, which showcases minority authors with unique stories. Yee’s two-decade career has solidified her as this generation’s “go-to” media personality. With her finger on the pulse of hip-hop, culture and business, Angela Yee is indeed a multi-hyphenate in every sense.
