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.

Talk Show Host Rob Redding Calls Woman from Michigan in Obama 2012 Ad "Ghetto"

Rob Redding, "America's Independent Voice" whose show airs on WAOK (Atlanta), WERE (Cleveland) and other stations around the country; calls out President Obama's first re-election ad for its portrayal of Blacks. Redding questions why 'Alice from Michigan', out of all of the people interviewed, made the final cut. He comes to the conclusion that someone vetted this ad and approved it. The other supporters, except for Alice, are featured longer and are "regionally American" in their speech, including the Hispanic women from Nevada and the White man from North Carolina.

He says, "I was appalled that the only black in President Obama's re-election video was loud and borderline ghetto. Alice of Michigan is loud and speaks broken English. 'President Obama is just one person....plus, he got a job,' she said. Here is my issue. Not all blacks shake their heads and snap their fingers when they talk, so why is the first black president portraying us in this way?"

  1. Someone needs to tell Rob that there are real problems that need to be spoken to. Don't waste the time of your listeners complaining about a women who really doesn't seem overly ethnic in her delivery of her message. There was no hand waving in the air. Rob, pick your battles carefully or wind up looking like a fool.
