Congratulations are in order. MediaTakeOut.com just learned that Charlamagne Tha God, former co-host to The Wendy Williams Experience got a new gig – hosting the Morning Show on Philadelphia’s 100.3 The Beat.
And for all those wondering … yeah … that’s Miss Jones’ old job.
Here’s the press release from Radio One:
Philadelphia, PA- Philadelphia, PA. – Radio One Philadelphia has named Charlamagne the new host of The Morning Beat show effective Friday May 1, 2009. He will be heard Monday through Friday from 6am-10am.
“Doing an all music morning show with mixer Bent Roc garnered some of the highest ratings that we’ve seen in the last year for our morning show on the Beat. We are presently #1 with woman 18-34 without doing a traditional morning show. Charlamagne will be brought on board to accent the current success of the “Morning Beat.” His commanding personality along with his internet savvy and his desire to be local will only propel this show to a higher plane. In honor of his first day we’ll allow Charlamagne to take over the station from 6am-10pm giving away $100 dollars every half hour as apart of him getting to know Philadelphia listeners on day one.” Says Elroy R.C. Smith- Operations Manager Of Radio One Philadelphia.
In the words of Charlamagne himself, he says: “Commanding my own morning show in a major market has been one of my dreams and this opportunity that has been presented to me just reinforces in my mind that I am walking the path that God wants me to walk.”
Already having been named one of the Top 30 People in Radio under the Age of 30, Charlamagne brings a brand of honesty that is refreshing and needed in this market. With that said 100.3 The Beat in conjunction with Radio One Philadelphia welcomes “The Voice of the Ghetto” Charlamagne to the city of brotherly love with the hope that he will be the brother they love the most in the mornings.
Charlamagne’s resume is impeccable. He has a proven track record of not only success but continuous progress throughout his career. He started out as an intern in 1999 and over the last 10 years he has held numerous positions within radio some of which include being the Co-Host of the nationally syndicated “Wendy Williams Experience” as well as being the current host of Dirt Law Radio in Columbia, SC.
Kind of hard to applaud for him, he seems really mean and nasty and such a HATER!
YALL GIVE THIS *** TOO MUCH FREE PUBLICITY> CHARLAMAGNE... IS THIS U!
never heard of him in my life
Why does all these wack *** people get shows in Philly? When am I going to get my show? "Between The ***" 10pm-2am
Congrats to Mr. Wendy Williams...
As fellow South Carolinian, I am very proud of him, i see him all the time out and about. He is kinda mean looking
I like Charlamnge from Wendy's show. Let's see what he can do by himself. BTW, I was not feeling the music format they switched to after Miss Jones. Miss Jones was the best, all her gossip and trash talking made for very intresting radio. Just my 2 cents!
yaaay! SC stand up!!! :)
MTO!!! Sounds like yall got paid to say all this!! hmm
Charlamagne aint a Hater, he's a TruthSayer!
*'You want the truth? Yoooouuu caaan't handle the truth!'
MY DUDE FUNNY AS HELL IF THEY LET HIM LOOSE IT SHOULD BE A GOOD SHOW
LISTEN TO MY MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!
ITS SO GOOD IT'LL MAKE YOU WANNA SLAP YO MOMMA
I think Philly has enough good morning shows..they should have given him the spot wendy left empty from 2-6pm. But that's a different station anyway...
That's what I am talking about. God rules all things.
It was just a matter of time . I knew you would get work doing what you do best. Go and rock philly, The way you know you can. It's only work . Peace
who gives a FU@@ can we get real news please wtf man
Well good luck to him, but why would he name himself God?
FORGET CHARLAMAGNE ,WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW?
Looks like someone threw hot oil on his left cheek
WHO CARES - NEVER LIKED HIM ANYWAY. GLAD IT"S IN PHILLY AND NOT NYC
Hmmm who is this guy?
I am from SC and yes that part is confirmed, he is most def from Cacalaka. I remember when he was a nobody, I didn't even know he was in Philly again after "POWER 99" dumped the Wendy Williams thing a few months ago. I hate Wendy she is such a ignorant Bich. When I here Here on 101.7 I just turn the station. I live in DE so I get the best of both Power99 and 100.3 the beat. These are rival stations but POWER99 got Philly on lock hands down! I don't really think even Charlamagne coming over will help that. Sorry 100.3 The dude got talent but will he last?
kool i'm from philly so i'm be tuning in
WHATEVER...... Looking for a unique gift? visit 4u2.com

MTO yall needa make me headline onee day YO!
do what u do son, the south made u, wendy spade u, now blow up the spot, just make sure u got a few weapons under the board during some of your interviews, i know how u get towards certain celebrities. anyway people, repeat after me..........THE GOD IS COMMING!, THE GOD IS COMMING!, THE GOD IS COMMING!, THE GOD IS COMMING!, THE GOD IS COMMING!......
I'm so happy 4 him...... i love that country dude
@ piggy44, yeah you read it wrong. Your eyes went straight to the money.
The money is mentioned as a promo giveaway to listeners. The radio station is hoping that people will tune in to win the money thereby giving Charlamange a chance to hook them with his talent. They are hoping that once you hear Charlamange you will tune in as a loyal listener even when the promo is over.
Hopefully Charlamange has stopped bad-mouthing celebs cuz he is going to need friends to survive morning radio.
do you think i care??
nope i DONT!!
philly radio probably sucks alway...
Whatever you need to do to make money for yourself by all means go for it. But to belittle and hate on people just to get ahead is Shameful. That is what Black People do. Hate on each other while other races continue to move ahead of us.
Congrats CHARLAMAGNE, I missed ya on Wendy's show. I am sure Wendy definitely had something to do with this.
All Charlamagne did was talk *isht*. Nothing but negativity out his mouth... Good luck w/ that Philly! LOL Nothing really special. Maybe just a sexy azz voice. That's about it...
South Carolina stand up. Charlamagne is that dude. his ish was poppin back when i was in college. He used to hold it down on 103.9. Talk junk bout everybody and didnt care. Didnt he take Memphis Bleek chain?
Had no idea who this was in the first place...
THE RAPPER ***.O.R.E MUST HAVE GOT IN FRED'S AZZ BECAUSE I SEE YOU TOOK DOWN THAT POST BELOW THIS ONE QUICK FAST AND IN A HURRY ABOUT HIS NEW BABY! THAT CHICK WAS GOING HARD AT HIM ON ALL HIS BUSINESS..LOL! MADE HIM SO MAD HE DID A LIGHT WORKOUT BUT SAYS HE STILL FEELS FAT..WTF!
I love him! Congrads Charlermayne!
Lol @ "Mr. Wendy Williams"
THATS TOO BAD. I WAS ENJOYING THE SILENCE.
IF YOU DONT CARE WHY THE F*CK IS YOU HERE? ***
now i know this website is affiliated with WENDY!!!! Who in the world is checking for him????????????
I wish people would stop calling him God, and is he a ***? I figure if you're making some money now, you could cut it out with the trigger posing like you're out the busting at people when you know you're not. He's got the nerve to be rockin a Jesus medallion too. Just when I thought I couldnt be anymore ashamed, the likes of somebody named Charlamagne "Tha God" proves me wrong.
Lookin like a post Jenny Craig Rick Ross
focusfocus - admit it, you are Charlamagne cause no one would hype up Charlamagne, Wendy or especially mention Kevin. You suck and you know it, let's see how long you last with no A list celebs, they hate you more then they her. SO GLAD YOU ARE OUT OF THE TRI-STATE AREA.
charlamagne, i love you; i'm happy for you. i think you're so great... but... lay offa chingy. he's a good boy...even if he's ***. :)
Don't trip off the Haters, they hatin cause he speakin the truth. Somebody gotta speak the truth. Luv you Charlamagne
i'm still staring at tha god. sooo handsome. look at that skin. yummy!
who the F is this ***
I heard him on the radio talking to MIMS...and they were gettin' it in...politican of course. He looks better than he sounds!!!
Call me Charlamagne...xoxoxo
I love him
how yu doin!
Hold up, wait a minute. Charlamagne the god? First, that name is feminine but don't stop there. The god? Of what? Hope no thunderstorms are heading to his city. Lightning STRIKES.
Great for him!!!
I haven’t LOST my mind…I SOLD it on Ebay.
the Morning Show on Philadelphia’s 100.3 The Beat.
^^^COOL THIS THE MORN SHOW I LISTEN TO EVERY MORN ANYWAY WITH BENT ROCK BUT IF CHARLAMAGNE GOING TO BE ON THERE I'LL STILL LISTEN CUZ I LIKE CHARLAMAGNE HES A FOOL I RATHER LISTEN TO 100.3 THE BEAT ANYWAY CUZ POWER.99 GOT THEN BIG BOY IN THE MORN AND HIS SHOW IS ANNOYING AND POWER.99 HAS BEEN LATELY ALSO SO WELCOME BACK TO PHILLY CHARLAMAGNE LOL ;)
I LOVE CHARLAMAGNE HES SEXY,HES FUNNY AND HE KEEPS IT ALL THE WAY REAL I LOVE WHAT HE DOES AND SAY ON THE RADIO HE JUST KEEPIN IT REAL ABOUT CERTAIN STUFF LOL...
@focusfocus: I used to listen to wendy but she blew mine always tryna "out" people for being ***. There is a difference between valid questions and hate meant to demean or embarrass people. I also got tired of the way she would curse out callers asking for advice. Like you would call askin about whether you should marry ur longtime boyfriend and she would go into a fit about how you are a loser for being with a longtime relationship and that she and her man are in business together...WHAT!?
I cant wait to find out what happens with the intern who sued because Kevin wanted to *** her...NYC aint got no love for this show..
i havent listened to wendy in a while, but i used to love it when she would be interviewing a guest, and she'd say, "go!" and charlamagne would just come from left field with some 'right' questions like bammm! bammm! shazaaammm! LOL lmfao
never cared for this guy at all, but hate to see anyone out of a job.. so congrats to him for landing very well on his feet. next
BTW.. MISS JONES THEY YOUR NEXT, I PREDICT KISS FM IN THE MORNINGS..HOLD YOUR HEAD MA!
DOES ANYONE NO WHAT HAPPEND TO STAR & BUC WILD? I KNOW THEY GOT THE AX FROM POWER 99, AND THEN CAME BACK TO SOME NO NAMED DANCE MUSIC STATION IN NYC I THINK IT WAS 987.7 BUT I DONT THINK THEY ARE THERE ANY MORE ANYONE KNOW? I LOVE THOSE DUDES
star and buck wild's corny *** went to miami and totally flopped. i miss the baka boyz.
All that *** sucks. Whenever Im forced to listen to broke peoples radio in the morning I tune in to Russ Parr on WKYS in DC
Good for him!!! Lets bring him back to NY!!!
hold the phone...MTO just posted this dude entire resume tryin to make him sound good but they also have chingy on today being blasted with a tranny. We all know how much charla (whateva his name is) hate chingy.
I smell fish Fred. Why da he*l the only two people on this site that dont get talked about is Charlamagne and Wendy? HMMMMMMM...
CHARLAMAGNE raps (so he says) so how da he*l the tranny come up with that? I think Charlamagne wrote that song for the tranny because Charla hates chingy so much. Again, I smell fish and no one I know over here is on the rag so......
charla is okay looking, he just needs a lil lip chap.
cHARLAMAGNE is a decent producer, he produced some bangers for DIP-SET back in the days.
I knew he would be ok...
His envy, criticism and disrespect of artist who are WAY MORE SUCCESSFUL than him is a little tough to listen to during interviews BUT he is a hard working young man and was fired from BLS through no fault of his own.
His firing had nothing to do with a "recession" and EVERYTHING to do with a law suit that had to be settled as well as an unprofessional environment at Inner City
I wish him well and hope he took something from that experience.
@ONICE: Star and Buc are on some station like 88 point 5 or sumthin in NYC and he is has the angry black guy who's spose to be Muslim on there, but I never heard Buc. Star still actin a fool but without any guests hat matter, noone actually tunes in. That *** Karma, boy...
@Focusfocus: ***! She settled out? thats F'd up! She talked so much mess about how when the suit is over, she was gonna put Nicole on blast, but she couldnt talk about it cuzof legal issues. She know that girl was tellin the truth..
Wendy just doesnt translate as well on T.V. as she does on the radio. Im tellin you, karma is a big, miserable, nasty, relentless ***!
I D!CK RIDE FOR CTG AS WELL...
