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.

Brandi Garcia New Midday Host at KDAY

93.5 KDAY Los Angeles has announced that veteran on air personality Brandi Garcia has signed on to do middays at the station. Garcia had been a long time host at KBXX 97.9 The Box in Houston. She had been mysteriously fired from the Radio One station in 2010. She revealed later that she had been let go for playing a Waka Flocka remix featuring Trae tha Truth at a non-station event on her own time. At the time Trae, a Houston born rapper, had filed a lawsuit against Radio One for banning his music from the only hip hop station in the city.

“The unique ‘back in the day’ format of KDAY reminds me of why I fell in love with the music. And working at such a legendary station in such a great city is a dream come true! I look forward to bringing a fresh and fun vibe to the airwaves of L.A,” Garcia said in a statement. She begins her new time slot at KDAY on Monday.
