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.

Developed in 2002 to raise preventive health awareness in the African American community, TALOTTD has grown from one day into a full-fledged initiative that impacts more than eight million listeners weekly. The year-long health awareness campaign is heavily promoted through Joyner’s “Get Well Wednesdays” feature.

Joyner and the morning show crew are excited about this weeklong broadcast and according to Tom Joyner, “On the Tom Joyner Morning Show we like to laugh, but our health is nothing to joke about.  It isn’t funny that our audience suffers from many health conditions that could be improved, controlled and even eliminated with proper nutrition, exercise and health care.  We all know that this is true…But, it’s time to do something about it!”

“Everyone knows someone who REALLY needs to tend to their health but they are too scared, lazy or stubborn to make the effort.  The Tom Joyner “Take A Loved One to the Doctor Day” campaign encourages us to take time and compassion to help someone we love get the health attention they need.”
