As his star continues to rise as a solo host, reports have surfaced that Charlamagne Tha God may be leaving his post on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club.

Charlamagne became a household name through the highly-rated morning radio show with his provocative celebrity interviews and tell-it-like-it-is attitude. His trademark style has captured millions of fans and earned him national recognition.

The television and radio host has hosted the show along with DJ Envy and Angela Yee since its inception in 2010. But with his contract set to expire in December, he has placed doubt on whether he will renew his deal or move on to other ventures.

A source close to Charlamagne told Page Six, “He loves working for [Power 105.1 parent company] I Heart Radio, but he is contemplating his next move."

“He’s not sure what he is going to do,” another insider commented. “There are a lot of potential deals in the air, and he just wants to keep his options open and think strategically.”

No other details were shared about those potential deals. But considering all the gigs and media opportunities Charlamagne has had in recent years, the idea of him ending up with his own show is most likely.

Besides The Breakfast Club, he already has done solo interviews on YouTube, some of which have racked up more views than his chats on the successful morning show

Charlamagne Tha God addressed the uncertainty of his future with the show on the air on March 4.

“I’ve [mentally quit the show] a lot recently,” he added. Even though he did not share what led to this, he suggested that radio censorship and mistreatment by staffers might be the reasons.

Later in the week, he repeated the same sentiment during an interview with State of the Culture hosts Joe Budden, Remy Ma, Jinx, and Eboni K. Williams. He was asked if he had renegotiated his contract, to which he replied with a flat, “Naw.”

But Charlamagne might not be the only host leaving as Angela Yee suggested that she might not renew her contract.

“It’s a re-negotiation time. I wanted the shortest contract possible,” she stated before noting that she was keeping her options open. “You never know if something else happens, who wants to be stuck if that’s not… Who knows?”

Where Charlamagne seems done with the show, Yee's decision seems like it could go either way as she pointed out how much the show has continued to grow.

While she and Charlamagne try to figure out their situations, DJ Envy made it very clear where he stands.

With five kids and a wife to support, he assured the State of the Culture hosts that he’ll continue to appear on The Breakfast Club.

“I’m long term” DJ Envy explained. “I’m looong term.”

All the hosts' stances should not come as a surprise as there has been growing tension between the three over an interview Charlamagne had with rapper Gucci Mane, leading to a beef between Yee and him over some words the rapper had for her and Envy.
