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.

Watch and listen to Angela Yee's last broadcast on The Breakfast Club. Charlamagne and DJ Envy will continue on without a third member as no replacement for Angela has been named as of yet. >Read more...

Chubb Rock Reveals Life Threatening Diagnosis to Tom Joyner

World renowned DJ Chubb Rock was interviewed on the Tom Joyner Morning Show to promote Tom Joyner’s Take a Loved One to the Doctor Basement Party and reveled his wake up call from friends like Heavy D dying and his recent diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes.

Here is the Interview:


Tom Joyner:
The “Chubbster”is going to be a part Doctor day! Thanks a lot Chubb Rock!

Chubb Rock:
It comes at a time for me that’s real crazy.

I’ve had a few friends that unfortunately passed away, you know my good friend Heavy D, and I said man it’s time for me to cut down some of this weight. I’m over 40 and I went and I lost 45 pounds.

Good for you! Congratulations!

Chubb Rock Continued:
But ain’t it a funny thing I go to the doctor and they hit me, this was just about 2 weeks ago now, and they hit me with the type 2 diabetes thing! I was like I lost 45 pounds and you hit me with this!

You know it’s one of those things it takes time for it to do it’s damage and it’s very important; had I gone to the doctor, you know men don’t like to go to the doctor and coming from that West Indian background the doctor is a voodoo name, if I would have just kept up with it better I could have maybe seen some of the warning signs and maybe this wouldn’t have happened.

Like I told a good friend of mine, my girl MC Lyte, when I told her what happened ‘I said I’m on my diet already I’m still on the diet, I’m feeling better and I’m gonna reverse this you know’… and then all of a sudden you guys come with the honor of trying to do this thing so I think it’s very important to take that family member to the doctor.
