Radio Moves and Media Quick Takes

Angela Yee is set to broadcast her last show on The Breakfast Club on Friday. Cardi B called in to the show on Thursday and suggested that she might like to sit in as guest host. It appears that the replacement plans for Yee are still up in the air. The Breakfast Club will move into new studios in January.

98.7 ESPN Radio New York shakes up their lineup with more local programming. The Michael Kay Show with Hot 97's Rosenberg of Ebro in the Morning remains in place. Bart & Hahn will leave the national ESPN Radio lineup. In January they will be heard exclusively on 98.7 FM discussing New York sports from 12-3pm. ESPN New York trails Sport Radio WFAN in ratings across the board as these programming changes were expected. >Read more...

ABC execs have been holding “emergency meetings” to address the mayhem since news broke of the affair. Disciplinary actions could be forthcoming...

CNN boss Chris Licht cut all live programming and has laid-off long time host Robin Meade at its sister network HLN, once known as Headline News. A number of reporters on CNN have lost their jobs as well.

Steve Harvey Back on the Air in Los Angeles at Radio Free 102.3 KJLH

Urban AC station KJLH has agreed to begin airing the syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show. Harvey has been off the air in Los Angeles since being dropped by Magic Broadcasting's Urban station 93.5 The Beat KDAY a couple of months ago.

KJLH has suffered greatly in terms of listenership and revenue under the PPM electronic ratings system. Steve Harvey will replace current radio vet and local host Guy Black, who came to L.A. from New York's 107.5 WBLS midday slot.

This is a big move for the station, as station owner Stevie Wonder vowed NEVER to go syndication. But desperate times call for desperate measures, which this certainly is. The L.A. market which has a dwindling Black population, seemed to have a huge connection with Harvey, who for many years worked as morning man with Shirley Strawberry at the former L.A. heritage station 100.3 The BEAT after heading west from Chicago. Many listeners were upset when Harvey was dropped from KDAY.

For now it looks like Stevie Wonder's on-air run will come to an end as well. He co-hosted the Thousand Dollar Thunder Thursdays (...or something like that... lol) which is probably a good thing. Who's going to tell the boss that he wasn't a good radio host!
