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.

John Legend Says Some Rappers Sound Like A**holes

John Legend takes hip-hop to task for misogny

R&B superstar John Legend is riding high off the release of his fourth solo album, Love In the Future, but that doesn’t mean he’s afraid to push buttons with provocative remarks about the music industry.

In a recent interview with Rolling Out, he called out some of his peers in hip-hop (without naming any names) about the misogynistic content of their lyrics. “Hip-hop has a strong misogynistic streak that we should try to get rid of. More rappers should be careful about what they say about women.

I think they’re trying to sound tough, or sound like they don’t give a sh*t. But to me, it just sounds like you’re an a**hole.”


“Some of the things I hear, I find pretty disgusting,” he added.

Legend has collaborated with numerous rappers such as Rick Ross, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Common, and oftentimes on songs which could be perceived as degrading to women.
