Angela Yee is entering the television scene.
Angela Yee was recently inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame with co-hosts Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy, is hosting “Established with Angela Yee.” The latest celebrity interview series will stream on Fox Soul on Thursdays at 10 p.m.
“I hosted a limited series on Fox Soul with Motown and iHeart and it did pretty well, so James DuBose, the [Fox Soul] head of programming, asked me about doing a one-on-one interview show. I thought it would be a good idea; I’ve done a lot of interviews before and enjoy getting more in-depth and hearing some fun stories and being able to celebrate people,” the 44-year-old star stated.
“So I agreed,” she said. “I came up with the title ‘Established with Angela Yee’ because I want to celebrate people’s wins and not make it about ‘gotcha’ interviews, but more about milestones and pivotal career moments.”
Angela Yee’s first guest was Method Man.
He was a good fit for the Fox Soul television series since she once worked as an intern for Wu-Tang Clan.
She stated they both talked about their good stories about all the times they worked there and how it helped them later on in life.
“Sometimes those little things may not seem significant, but they are,” she says. “I would describe my interviewing style as very conversational…it feels like you’re just kicking it. I always have certain questions in my head and I always make sure I ask. But I try not to be strict about that because if they go and take [the conversation] someplace else then I’ll go there with them,” Yee said.
Angela Yee also says she has a “wish list” of guests she would love to interview. Stars such as Lil Kim and Missy Elliott are on Yee’s radar to come onto the show.
“I think a lot of times we do need to pay tribute to those artists that have paved the way. It’s not even just the artist — it could be entrepreneurs and business people in the industry,” Lee shared.
