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.

Power 105.1 goes in on Hot 97, Nicki Minaj talks to Funkmaster Flex [AUDIO]

Nicki Minaj was all set to take the stage as the headliner of New York's Hot 97′s Summer Jam festival in East Rutherford, N.J. Sunday. She never made it. Instead, she canceled because of comments made by Peter Rosenberg, the Hot 97 morning personality. He said Minaj‘s song 'Starship' was not real hip hop. Minaj took offense, as did Lil Wayne, the head of Young Money label. He quickly pulled the rest of his artists from the Summer Jam, tweeting “Young Money ain’t doing summer jam.”

Nas filled in for Minaj as the concert's headliner with a guest performance by Lauryn Hill. We have a feeling we've not heard the last of this feud brewing between Hot 97 and the Young Money camp.

Hot 97 earned the honor of Power 105.1 Breakfast Club's 'Donkey of the Day.'
