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.

Hot 97's PD Ebro Darden talks Summer Jam, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj

This morning Hot 97 Program Director Ebro Darden sat in with the station's Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg morning show to discuss his thoughts on the "Nicki Minaj-less" Summer Jam 2012 and to share some inside scoop with listeners. Darden said that his differences with Lil Wayne and Young Money go back several years, and Wayne's decision to pull his artists off the Summer Jam stage at Met Life Stadium may not have been all about this one incident.

"Many years ago me and Wayne had our differences here at Hot 97," Darden said on the air, noting that Weezy dissed the station in the liner notes of his album, Tha Carter I. But Darden added that the station's goal has always been to help Nicki Minaj and to support New York Hip-Hop artists.
