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.

Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club will broadcast LIVE on REVOLT TV

REVOLT TV and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment have announced that nationally syndicated morning show "The Breakfast Club" will be televised live Monday through Friday on REVOLT TV beginning by March 3, 2014. The show is based out of New York's Power 105.1 with hosts Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy.

"Starting our day with The Breakfast Club brings three more hours of live daily programming to REVOLT's already expansive real time coverage of music, music news and culture each day," said Andy Schuon, president and co-founder of REVOLT. "Taking this award-winning Power 105 morning show and extending its reach to television reinforces Clear Channel position as a preeminent multiplatform entertainment company," said John Sykes, president of Entertainment Enterprises for Clear Channel. "We are a company that creates incredible, original content every day and we are excited to partner on this with a true visionary like Sean Combs."

 "The Breakfast Club" was launched in December 2010 at Power 105.1. None of the hosts had worked together previously. DJ Envy was an on-air personality at Hot 97 and had recently joined Power 105.1. Angela Yee had gained notoriety as an on-air personality at Sirius/XM radio. Charlamagne was an on-air personality and (unpaid) sidekick with Wendy Williams at WBLS; a morning host at the former 100.3 The Beat in Philly (he was fired after a Beanie Sigel  interview in which Jay-Z was criticized by the rapper). Charlamagne got his start in radio in Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina. While in SC, he gained fame within radio circles for the intense and *explicit* 2005 interview he did with video model Buffie the Body. [Listen to it below.] If nothing else Charlamagne calls it like he sees it with honesty and truth. He has paid his dues...

The show was named the No. 1 radio program in the nation by "The Source" magazine.
