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.

Kevin Hart Donates $50K to HBCU and Tom Joyner...

Tom Joyner Buys Out Theatre On The Tom Joyner Morning Show

Tom Joyner confirmed today that while Kevin Hart was co-hosting for 3 hours on the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show leading into the release of his latest movie ‘Think Like a Man Too’, Hart offered to donate $50,000 to send the Texas Southern University’s band to see Michael Strahan inducted into the Football Hall of Fame. After Kevin heard that the Tom Joyner Foundation was raising funds for the band he offered to help them get there. The Tom Joyner Foundation supports HBCUs.


In appreciation, while broadcasting live with Radio One's KMJQ-Majic 102.1 FM from the Breakfast Klub in Houston TX for the Texas Black Expo, Tom Joyner purchased 100 tickets to support Kevin’s film ‘Think Like a Man Too.’

“Since Kevin did the $50K donation I thought it would be a great idea to support his movie.  So I've bought 100 tickets to the 10am show,” Joyner stated. Tickets were giving out during this morning’s live broadcast.
