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.

104.1 The Beat Is Birmingham's Newest Hip Hop and R&B Radio Station and Sixth FM Urban Station


104.1 The Beat joins an already crowded field that includes: Cox Media's 95.7 Jamz, 98.7 Kiss FM with the Tom Joyner Morning Show and Neo-Soul station 102.1 WENN with the Rickey Smiley Morning Show; Citadel's Hot 107.7 with the Steve Harvey Morning Show and 92.9 WTUG; besides sister gospel station 105.1 Hallelujah FM.

Clear Channel Radio Birmingham has launched a new Hip Hop and R & B formatted radio station called, "104.1 The Beat". Musically, the station will feature artists like Kayne West, Beyonce, Lil' Wayne, and Nicki Minaj. Currently, 104.1 The Beat is playing 10,000 songs in a row, commercial free, as a celebration of its start in Birmingham.

Clear Channel has launched the station as a result of reaserch it conducted showing that listeners were dissatisfied with their current choices in Birmingham.

Ray Quinn, Market Manager for Clear Channel Radio Birmingham said, "Listeners are going to love the fact that the All New 104.1 The Beat plays a terrific blend of Hip Hop and Old School with more music than any other Urban formatted radio station in Birmingham! Clear Channel now has two powerful ways for advertisers to reach those important Black adult consumers; Hallelujah 105.1, and The Beat 104.1!"

  1. I love the new hip hop station 104.1 that is commercial free. They are playing all the hot joints both old and new. I hope the station continues to be commercial free, but if not, I hope the station continues to play a variety of music. Birmingham's current hip hop station plays the same music back to back and they don't offer a variety.

  5. I drove through Birmingham all the time as a trucker and 104.1 was always jumping. I am back in school now and helping other drivers get into trucking but I still listen to 104.1 online.
