He is also a social media influencer; an executive producer with his own production company, CThaGod World LLC; and cohost of the popular podcast Brilliant Idiots.

His point of view and provocative celebrity interviews help drive the daily national conversation about issues related to hip-hop, race, society, and politics.
“I haven’t talked to her [Wendy Williams] in seven years. I haven’t talked to her since February of 2010, that’s the last time I had a conversation with her,” Charlamagne tells PEOPLE. “I had a conversation with her husband [Kevin Hunter], but it wasn’t nothing productive — just a bunch of yelling and screaming.”
Charlamagne was fired from Williams’ past radio show The Wendy Williams Experience in November 2008, with Williams citing company downsizing, the New York Times reports. However, in his book Black Privilege, Charlamagne reveals that a bad business deal with Hunter led to the firing. Black Privilege is his first book.
