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.

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.

"I’ve  respected Charlamagne since I met him in 2006, when I appeared a few times on the Wendy Williams Experience.  He treated me with tremendous decency long before anyone knew or cared who I was.  He’s also an honest  advocate for the challenges of the black male in America, which makes him an important ally in the struggle for black liberation and advancement."



"I watched the interview curiously, impressed by the honesty with which TJ Holmes went about sharing his challenges with the new show, and how his network is both supporting him and fighting with him.   His courageous decision to speak so honestly about the difficulty of developing quality content and a good audience for BET..."
