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.

Kelly Mac Transitions to Charlotte's V101.9 as MD and Midday Host


Just last week Kelly Mac exited Radio One Indianapolis. While not quite ready to announce her next move at the time, today she joins Beasley Broadcasting in North Carolina. This marks a return to the Carolinas for her. Kelly enjoyed two successful stints with Greenville, South Carolina's 107.9 JAMZ (WJMZ) including a mid market on-air personality of the year award. Now she reconnects to the area just a bit up I-85 in nearby Charlotte.



Beasley Media Group, Inc., a subsidiary of Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. announces Kelly Mac will return to the Carolinas as the new Midday Host and Music Director at WBAV/V101.9-FM. She will begin her new position on July 10, 2017.

Mac most recently served as the program director and PM drive talent in Indianapolis, Indiana. Prior to that, she was the midday talent at WJMZ-FM in Greenville, South Carolina.

“It’s a blessing to be able to team up with a strong, creative, competitive, and supportive leader like Uzi who believes in live, local, personality driven radio,” said Mac. “Charlotte has been a market I’ve been watching and wanting to work in over a decade. So I am thrilled to have the chance to join forces with Uzi and the WBAV team!”

“I am excited to bring in a talent who is so passionate about radio and has the drive, enthusiasm, and talent to continue to grow our awesome WBAV brand,” noted Operations Manager Jeff Uzi D Anderson. “Kelly’s incredible attitude and magnetic connection that she has with her listeners both on and off the air will be a game changer in the market. I look forward to the positive impact she will bring, which is right in line with the culture that we continue to build here at Beasley Media Charlotte.”
