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.

Sheryl Underwood Messed Up... OK Really Messed Up, Big Time

Will She Apologize?...Or will she hide behind Twitter

Hair Comment Sets Twitter Off and Leaves Her Shaken

If you catch Sheryl Underwood's segment on the Steve Harvey Harvey Morning Show, then you pretty much know she's always on her A-Game even if you find her a little over the top at times. But this morning Sheryl's comments had both Shirley Strawberry and Nephew Tommy thinking... What the hell is she talking about? (Is she really talking about TV cop shows from the 50's and 60's???)

So this is what was wrong with Sheryl Underwood this morning

While the rest of us were enjoying the Labor Day Holiday weekend, Sheryl was on Twitter defending herself and retweeting Tweets that supported her.

So here's the deal [ FROM The Grio] On Friday, CBS re-aired an episode of The Talk, a clear knock-off of The View, which includes comedian Sheryl Underwood and actress Sarah Gilbert.

Underwood made some comments disparaging natural black hair that left many, particularly on social media, seething.

During Friday’s episode, guest Heidi Klum shared that she saves the “shorn hair” of her biracial children with ex-husband Seal. She described her children’s hair as “pretty.” Underwood asked Klum, “Why would you save afro hair?” then joked, “You can’t weave afro hair.” She added, “You never see [black women] at the hair place going ‘Look, here, what I need here is, I need those curly, nappy beads…That just seems nasty.”

Co-host Sarah Gilbert joined the conversation, admitting that she also saves her children’s hair. Underwood responded, deducing that Gilbert’s children’s hair was “probably some beautiful, long, silky stuff.”
