has been vocal about her dissatisfaction with the compensation offered, raising speculation that financial disagreements may be the primary reason for her absence from The Breakfast Club. It appears that Jess may have presented a figure that iHeart deemed too high, leading to a standoff as negotiations continue.

Back on December 23, 2023, Jess Hilarious was all pumped up, spilling the beans about possibly taking over Angele Yee's spot at an event in Baltimore. But now, it looks like jumping the gun with that announcement might have led to her getting kicked out of the running.

They have been applying public pressure on iHeart to secure her as the third co-host. This includes a staged segment expressing frustration at iHeart's delay and a public plea for her inclusion.

In a recent encounter with TMZ, Charlamagne maintained a stance of uncertainty, claiming, “We said we were going to start 2024 with a new co-host; it hasn't happened yet. We don't want anyone else but Jess, and I don't know what's going on.” However, his long-standing partnership with iHeart and their extensive collaboration over the years raises questions about his true level of awareness regarding the negotiations.

As the whole saga unfolds, fans are waiting to see how things pan out and if Jess will finally snag that sought-after offer to join the iconic morning show.
