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.

Did Media Overreact to Cam Newton's Laughter at Female Reporter?

During a press conference on Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers beat writer for The Charlotte Observer, Jourdan Rodrigue asked quarterback Cam Newton about his receivers' improved route-running abilities. He smirked and called the question "funny" coming from "a female."

Reaction from the cable sports networks and the Panther organization along with the NFL have been critical of Cam Newton.

  • But could it be that Cam Newton was overly impressed by the content of the question? 
  • Could it be that he gets a ton of dumb questions from male reporters all time AND the best question he has gotten in a long time comes from a female? 
  • Could it be that he used "funny" as a slang term, as in "that's crazy"?
  • Could it be that everyone missed the part where he gave a well thought out and respectful response to the question?
  • Could it be that the reporter was "offended" because she is not totally confident in herself in the male dominated world of sports reporting?

UPDATE: After our original post above, there was some background on the reporter that she had to apologize for. Also Cam endorsement deal with Dannnon Yogurt has ended. Sounds like a rush to judgment. Ultimately Cam Newton apologized for his comments this evening via the video below.

  1. Yes, it was an overreaction, as is almost everything else the media is pushing on US these days. It's sickening.
