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.

The NEW Myspace According to Justin Timberlake

"Lucky for me, from what I've seen, it's that type of interaction [with the 'Top Fans' feature]."


In a music environment that now means artists and bands must count on touring rather than records sales for their very survival, Justin Timberlake sat down with MTV to talk about the reinvented social network site that is 'blurring the gap' between artists and fans.

FROM MTV NEWS: When it was announced that Justin Timberlake bought a stake in Myspace more than a year ago, we didn't quite know what to think about it. Sure, we've been used to Timberlake flexing various creative muscles via film, TV, fashion, restaurants and even home décor, but his taking part in the revamping of a seemingly flat-lined social-networking site was a real head-scratcher.

Myspace now features a redesigned website with streaming live performances from various artists. Tonight's performance is from Ciara.
