The Steve Harvey Morning Show has lost one of its longtime partners.

On Monday, Oct. 22, Pittsburgh hip-hop and R&B station WAMO-FM replaced Harvey’s radio program with The Breakfast Club.

WAMO made the announcement last week with a video on Facebook featuring New York-based Breakfast Club hosts Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy.

The Breakfast Club now airs each weekday on the station from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

“It’s our goal at WAMO to keep things fresh, new, and bring excitement to the City of Pittsburgh,” WAMO Operations Manager Louis Wingfield told the New Pittsburgh Courier. “The Breakfast Club is the number one hip-hop radio show in the country.”

Friday was the last day WAMO aired Harvey’s program with co-hosts Shirley Strawberry, Carla Ferrell, Thomas “Nephew Tommy” Miles, Junior, and J. Anthony Brown.

Wingfield said the station wanted to go in a different direction.

“Steve Harvey was not canceled because they did anything wrong at all,” he explained “It’s just a matter of changing things up. We don’t like to stay the same and keep doing things exactly the same.”

Harvey’s show ran on WAMO from 2006 to 2009, when the station closed. The show was eventually brought back after WAMO relaunched.

This is the second time in a month that Harvey has suffered a professional setback.

In September it was revealed that several NBC stations will replace the comedian’s daytime television talk show with The Kelly Clarkson Show in the fall.
