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.

Tom Joyner Voices Concerns About the Upcoming Presidential Election

On the TJMS: April Ryan Talks with Artur Davis, speaker at the Republican National Convention and Tom Joyner voices concerns about Democratic voters and the November 2012 Election 

Correspondent April Ryan spoke with Artur Davis about his upcoming keynote speech at the Republican National Convention and answers the question if he thinks the black community is better off with Mitt Romney as president. Davis responds, "I don't judge policies based on how it affects one community."
After the interview Tom Joyner express his concerns about Artur Davis and the upcoming Presidential campaign.

Tom Joyner stated:
“The scary thing is that I think the (Obama) campaign believes that black people are going to show up at the polls and vote regardless.”

“These polls don’t tell the real story. The story is that black people are going to not vote at all thinking (Obama’s) going to win!”

“(Artur Davis) was bringing up points that I hear all the time ‘if you look at the Presidents record it doesn’t look good’; but my question STILL is will you be better off with a Republican than you are right now? Will we go backwards? He couldn’t, he wouldn’t answer that question!”
