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.

Spike Lee Tells an Amazing Story of How He Got Started to Pharrell on the "Artst Talk"

In the latest installment of the series, film director Spike Lee sat down with Pharrell to discuss his prolific films, career, upbringing, and host of other topics.

Spike says he didn't choose film; film chose him.

"And that's why I thank my parents, who always at a very early age — not that we were going to be filmmakers or whatever — they wanted to give us exposure to the arts. So, everything I'm doing today is because my mother was dragging me to museums; and that's when the Black family was in tact."

Spike talks about his start in filmmaking in the summer of 1977, the influence of exposing children to art at an early age, and the love of his work and his hometown that has fueled the movies he calls "The Brooklyn Chronicles."
