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.

The Steve Harvey inspired movie: 'Think Like a Man' holds onto No. 1 spot

The Steve Harvey "Brand" Continues to Grow

After toppling The Hunger Games from its month-long No. 1 perch, Think Like a Man claimed the top spot again this weekend. The Steve Harvey comedy made $18 million, according to studio estimates from box-office tracking firm Hollywood.com. The encore weekend lifts the $12 million film's overall revenue to $60.9 million, more than twice what analysts anticipated.

The real star of the film of course is Kevin Hart. In the [video] below he makes a surprise visit to movie theaters across the country showing the film. When was the last time you've seen an actor do post release promotion?

The message is clear: 'Think Like a Man' is not a Black film it's a film for everyone. There is a lesson in there somewhere for not just Hollywood, but for the entire media industry, based on the success of the film. BTW the message is NOT to syndicate the Steve Harvey Morning Show to every Urban Adult Contemporary radio station in the country.

Check out the lady that dips her hand into Kevin Hart's bag of popcorn!
