Charlamagne Tha God is taking his talents to Comedy Central for a new weekly talk show.
According to Vulture, which first reported the news, The Breakfast Club co-host will spend a half-hour each week interviewing guests and giving his take on “the issues that are going on in the world.”
The show doesn’t have a title or premiere date yet, but it is expected to debut in the fall ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
The series reunites Charlamagne with Chris McCarthy, who is the president of the Entertainment and Youth Group at Comedy Central’s parent company ViacomCBS.
Charlamagne and McCarthy previously worked together on Charlamagne & Friends and Uncommon Sense with Charlamagne on MTV2.
“Giving me a TV deal, almost ten years ago, didn’t really make any sense,” Charlamagne said in a statement. “I was a radio guy. It’s easy to say, ‘You know what? I think Charlamagne Tha God needs a talk show’ now. But almost ten years ago for him to have that vision, that did a lot for me. A lot of my success right now is because of those looks that I got on MTV2 and Viacom at the time. And none of that would’ve happened if it wasn’t for Chris.”
The radio host made headlines back in May, when he interviewed former Vice President Joe Biden who quipped about the upcoming presidential eleciton — if you support President Trump, “then you ain’t black.”
