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 Warren Ballentine is Dropped from WAOK Atlanta




Courtesy of BlackTalkers.com- Warren Ballentine is out in Atlanta - The talk show host writes on Facebook: "The show is still on everyday across the nation. We lost 1380am in Atlanta but already have 3 other stations looking to add us in the ATL. We are still on everywhere else. Shame aok let us go, cause of egos. (I missed FSO and they felt disrespected even though I couldn't make it 'till that Sunday) black folks what can we do?"

Did Warren Ballentine get dumped because he only made one appearance at the 20th anniversary FSO (For Sisters Only) weekend event back in September as he claims?

FSO is co-sponsored by CBS Atlanta sister stations V-103 and WAOK.

Fans of the show react on the WAOK facebook page. Warren Ballentine is syndicated through Radio One and he along with Al Sharpton both garnered a following in Atlanta on the former Grown Folks Radio 102.5 FM until a format change to Gospel. WAOK and CBS Radio decided to pick up both shows in 2009 and add them to their daily broadcast schedule after some protests from the Atlanta community.
