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.

Julio G. Will Return to KDAY in 2013


Pioneering DJ Reportedly Returning to the Industry

Veteran Los Angeles, California area dj and on-air personality Julio G announced this week that he will return to terrestrial airwaves after a several-year hiatus. DubCNN reports that Julio, who has worked with Cypress Hill and Snoop Dogg in recent years, will begin at KDAY at 93.5 FM beginning in January 2013.

Julio is often credited as a pioneer within the Gangsta Rap movement of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The Lynwood, California native also provided a platform for Hip Hop news during the prominence of Ruthless Records, Death Row Records and Priority Records. -Source HIP HOP DX

When we last heard from Julio, it was about 2 and a half years ago (at the end of 2009). He was less than enthusiastic about the radio industry. He was simply burned out and turned off by tight playlists. Julio at the time said "it would take money" to get him back on the radio. He added that it would be insult for him to accept a radio position for $30,000 a year, for not only himself, but for the next generation of on air personalities in the Los Angeles market.

Here is the audio from that post:
