Charlamagne Tha God has re-upped with iHeartMedia on a five-year extension!
“I give my sincerest thanks to iHeart for empowering me over the past decade to be the best talent that I can be, and for honoring me as an owner and executive,” Charlamagne relayed in a statement. “I love the audio business and iHeart is the biggest and best audio company in the world. As co-founder and chief creative officer of the Black Effect Podcast Network and now senior creative officer of cultural content and programming at iHeart, all I want to do for the next five years is continue to move the culture of radio and podcasting forward by curating a new era of voices, programming, and events. God is great! Now, it’s time to get back to work.”
Charlamagne launched the Black Effect Podcast Network with iHeart, which will host established podcasts such as Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson’s All The Smoke, N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs, and The 85 South Show with DC Young Fly are already on board.
Charlamagne is working on an interview show exclusively with iHeart and is also set to host a talk show launching on Comedy Central in 2021.
“10 Years,” he began. “@breakfastclubam Thank You GOD. Thank You To The Listeners. This is the first promo video we ever recorded together. We didn’t have promotion and marketing budgets back then just the internet. I remember this video got a half a million views in 24 hours and we were like oh we got action huh??? 10 Years Later. GOD IS EVERYTHING.”
