The Baltimore native is known to fans for her appearances on VH1 sketch series Wild’N Out and the short-lived Fox sitcom Rel.

The comedian let the news slip in December that she’d gotten the job, now comes the official announcement.

“I’m very excited to have Jess Hilarious join The Breakfast Club. She is a force in her own right, an actress, comedian, podcaster, and now, the co-host of ‘The Breakfast Club,’” said Thea Mitchem, iHeartMedia’s executive vice president of programming. “Jess was the standout choice to join Charlamagne and DJ Envy to build upon ‘The Breakfast Club’s legacy of entertaining, informing and enlightening the community.”

The comedian replaces longtime co-host Angela Yee, who announced in August 2022 that she was leaving the program after 12 years to launch her own midday show called “Way Up With Angela Yee.”

“The Breakfast Club” airs weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET.

The show features interviews with celebrities, plus entertainment news and music mixes, and runs on nearly 100 radio stations across the country.
