On Saturday, November 9, former 106 & Park host Mykie took over the upper level of the 40/40 Club in the Flatiron district of NYC to launch her entertainment news show All Def Daily on Russell Simmons‘ and Steve Rifkind‘s digital network All Def Digital.

The show All Def Daily, launching this month, was birthed from the popular 15-second news segment produced by iYo Visuals and hosted by Mykie called “The Tea” on the social media platform Instagram. After a successful stint as one of the hosts of BET’s 106 & Park and the segment ‘Mykie’s Report’ on the show, fans were eager for Mykie to continue feeding them the latest news, celebrity gossip, and pop culture. Mykie and her team used tools of innovation and creativity to form “The Tea” as a way for fans and friends to stay connected to Mykie as an entertainment host. After 108 episodes and media including CNN and the Huffington Post, Russell Simmons and Steve Rifkind were interested in growing the 15-second news segment into a 2-minute daily entertainment news show on their digital network, All Def Digital. Viewers can subscribe to www.youtube.com/user/alldefdigital to watch Mykie give you all the hottest and latest entertainment news daily at 12pm ET on All Def Daily!

Celebrity friends and fans were eager to celebrate this new business venture with Mykie at the 40/40 Club where notable guests included Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club and The Guy Code‘s Charlamagne Da God, VH1′s LaLa’s Full Court Life‘s Po Johnson, Huffington Post Live anchor Marc Lamont Hill and more. Guests enjoyed food platters, mini cupcakes courtesy of Cherish Tha Moment and even a congratulatory toast to Mykie orchestrated by Po Johnson and Rae Holliday and Gabe Williams of popular entertainment site Stuff Fly People Like. Sponsors for the event included Reebok, Zayani Clothing and Boojee Hair.
