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.

Ilyasah Shabazz, Malcolm X's Daughter Walks Out on NPR Radio Interview


Ilyasah Shabazz, one of six daughters of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz, walked out of an interview on NPR's 'Tell Me More' after saying, "I'm a little annoyed by this discussion because this is not what I agreed to."

Michel Martin, host of the program, had asked about the controversial passages in Manning Marable's new biography "Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention". The questioning centered on alleged infidelity on the part of her mother and her father's alleged homosexual encounter with an older white man during Malcolm's earlier days as a street hustler.

During the interview Ilyasah Shabazz also mentioned that Dr. Marable failed to specifically interview her, surviving siblings of Malcolm X, or her sisters for the book, even though he had been doing research on it the last 20 years. The thing for sure that has generated the most buzz about the book is the supposed sexual infidelity and encounters surrounding Malcolm X, rather than the work of the man. Seems like sensationalism over substance works every time.

Ilyasah Shabazz is the author of "Growing Up X: A Memoir by the Daughter of Malcolm X", published in 2002.

Here is the interview from NPR
