Radio Moves and Media Quick Takes

Tee-Roy, iHeartMedia's on-air personality at 93.3 The Beat in Jacksonville, Power 99 in Philadelphia, and in other markets; tells local Jacksonville TV station News 4 that his listeners say play Kanye West in light of Ye's recent anti-Semitic posts on Twitter that have resulted in him being banned by Elon Musk. “I thought more people would be like, ‘Hey, don’t play Kanye. I don’t want to hear him.’ But the response has been the total opposite So, to me, it’s shocking,” Tee-Roy said. “The biggest thing that came up has been race. Everybody’s said, ‘He’s a Black man and we need to support him as a Black man.’”

ABC News president Kim Godwin has decided to take Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes off the air, saying they’ve become too much of an internal and external distraction. Look for the hosts to return rather quickly as the ratings for 'GMA3' from last week saw a significant boost from the prior two weeks before the news of their affair surfaced. Godwin said that the relationship is not a violation of company policy.

Samantha Chatman has been promoted to weekend morning anchor at Chicago's WLS-TV ABC 7 Eyewitness News.

First Steve Harvey, Now Beyonce Pimpin' Black Women

The Fresh Xpress blog comes right out and says Steve Harvey and Beyonce are taking advantage of the recent media portrayals of single Black women. He uses Beyonce's latest video as proof.

What do you think?

After viewing the video, it's hard to just categorize the Beyonce video for "Why Don't You Love Me" as another negative image meant to exploit this "no good marriageable Black men" phenomenon that seems to be going on in America.

Beyonce's portrayal in the video is akin to the stereotypical late 1950's/early 1960's white American housewife, who is so bored with their existence, that they drink to ease the pain, while the husband goes to the office. So the video is set to appeal to mainstream America in a Lady Gaga style, rather than solely to Black women. Just as Steve Harvey's book became a best seller because it connected with MANY women across America; the Beyonce video is meant to do the same thing.

The video, which has been out for a few weeks, has yet to get the push from program directors on mainstream rhythmic radio across the country. We'll see how it will be received.
