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.

Stronger and Clearer, St. Louis' Urban AC 'Majic' Moves From 104.9 to 100.3

Clear Channel Dumps Classic Rock for Rhythmic Hip Hop at 104.9

KBWX "The Brew" is gone and the KMJM "Majic" has moved from 104.9. Majic and popular afternoon host Tony Scott are now heard at 100.3 on the FM dial. The station still features the Urban AC /R&B format as before.

Its old frequency of 104.9 is now the home of "Wild 104," which features pop and hip-hop. "The Brew," which played classic rock with the well-known "Bob & Tom Show" is off the air. But fans of the show can still pick it up on the Internet.

"We're excited to introduce 'Wild 104.9' to St. Louis listeners and offer new music programming for our local audience," said Clear Channel Media and Entertainment St. Louis President/Market Mgr. Beth Davis. "The New Majic 100.3 will provide a better listening experience with a stronger and clearer signal reaching all of St. Louis so they can get Today’s R&B and Old School where they live and work."

"Majic" takes over the frequency that once carried heritage Urban station KATZ FM 100.3 The Beat until it was flipped to another format in 2009. A station, at the time that become important to Midwest hip hoppers Nelly, Chingy, and the St. Lunatics.
