RADIO Comes To REALITY TV... Power 105.1 And Hot 97

Radio is FINALLY coming to reality TV and I couldn't be more excited! Being the "radio geek" that I am, I suggested this very idea to a radio executive three years ago, back when I was an intern. It didn't spark a launch back then... BUT finally SOMEBODY jumped on the idea.

It's exciting to know that radio continues to "keep up" with the speed of technology and the attention span of it's audience. Clear Channel's super successful, nationally syndicated morning show, The Breakfast Club will make its television debut on Diddy's new Revolt TV network starting this Monday, March 31st at 6am.

We'll get to watch Angela Yee, Charlamange tha God, and DJ Envy at work. But, rather than a full reality show, it seems like this show will  focus solely on the morning show, rather than the entire station. Fans of the show will get to see how an actual radio show is done... LIVE! We'll get to see the celebrity interviews and what it takes to come to work at 5am and be an "energetic" voice of the city. And as we all know, the Breakfast Club is not just in one city but in MANY cities across the country, so now all of their listeners will get to watch them from inside the studio. Angela Yee posted a countdown video below.

I am a fan of The Breakfast Club interviews.... so I can't wait to see this show. In other news.... there is another NY hip hop station coming to TV.

Legendary NY hip hop station HOT 97 also has a new reality show, and it will also debut this Monday on VH1. Unlike like it's competitors show, "This Is Hot 97" will focus on ALL of it's on-air staff.

We'll get a look at radio legends like Angie Martinez and Funk Master Flex on and off the mic. Check out the preview below. 

Get More: This Is Hot 97

Being the radio nerd that I am, I'll be watching BOTH shows faithfully... and I'll have all of the info RIGHT HERE in the DIVA DEN.
