Univision Rhythmic CHR “98.5 The Beat” KBBT San Antonio has added Premiere Networks’ syndicated “The Breakfast Club” with Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy for mornings.
The show replaces The Dana Cortez Show, which exited the company at the end of July for a syndication deal with ABC Radio that placed it on Alpha Media’s “Energy 94.1” KTFM in afternoons. The addition of The Breakfast Club also marks a change in strategy for Univision Radio, which until now had not relied on any outside syndication at their stations.
