HBO has a few pundits out there spouting off their opinions (you know, Maher, Oliver, Cenac) but there seems to be room for one more. Next up is Charlamagne Tha God. If you haven’t heard of him, which I hadn’t, he is a radio & TV personality. Charlamagne Tha God is Lenard McKelvey of Charleston SC. He is a co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show, “The Breakfast Club” and more. According to an HBO press release he has something to share and the channel took him up for the chance to do just that.
CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD BRINGS HIS UNIQUE STYLE OF INTERVIEWING
TO HBO IN THE GRAY AREA WITH CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD
HBO has entered into a deal with Charlamagne Tha God to bring his distinctive voice to the network in a series of four interview specials, it was announced by Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming.
“Charlamagne brings a provocative, thoughtful and always honest voice to all of his interviews,” says Rosenstein. “We think these specials will be surprising and enlightening and we look forward to seeing who he brings to the table.”
“I feel extremely blessed to be able to announce my official partnership with HBO on a new conversation series which will provide a safe space for ‘unsafe’ people to curate their stories and control their own narratives,” notes Charlamagne. “The reality is, when it comes to people’s stories, it’s not black or white, it’s always an area that’s a shade of gray and that’s usually where the lies end and the truth begins, and this show will give those people an opportunity to share their truth. Thank you to my new television home, HBO and all praise is due to god!” says the New York Times bestselling author and co-host of the nationally syndicated hip-hop iHeartRadio program, “The Breakfast Club.”
THE GRAY AREA WITH CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD is executive produced by Charlamagne Tha God and Karen Kinney with the first of four specials scheduled to debut later this year.
We will see what he has to offer.
