Clear Channel Houston confirmed to me Friday evening that nationally syndicated The Breakfast Club will be 93.7 The Beat's new morning show.

93.7 The Beat Houston KKRW
Billed as "The World's Most Dangerous Morning Show," The Breakfast Club is the highly acclaimed morning drive show on Power 105.1 WWPR New York, and is heard on stations across the country. Hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God can also be seen on shows airing on MTV2 and VH1.

The show starts in Houston January 21st.

UPDATE
93.7 The Beat announced its lineup:
5am-9am The Breakfast Club
9am-2pm: UB Rodriguez
2pm-6pm: Rudy Rush
6pm-10pm: Devi Dev
10pm-2am: Chris Michaels

If you're not a radio geek, you probably won't care about this, but there have been questions on whether 93.7 The Beat will keep the old 93.7 The Arrow call letters KKRW.

 As the old Arbitron diary method doesn't apply to Houston anymore, call letters are less important. Clear Channel tells me it will keep the KKRW call letters for 93.7 The Beat.

UPDATE 1/21/2014
I was originally told by Clear Channel the call letters for 93.7 The Beat would remain KKRW, but the station's Twitter account let me know they are now KQBT.
