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.

Wife of WDAS' Quiet Storm Host Tony Brown Post Go Fund Me Page for His Medical Expenses

My husband, Tony Brown, has been very ill since the beginning of 2018. Many of you know Tony from his nightly radio show, The Quiet Storm, on WDAS-FM in Philadelphia. He has been broadcasting for 46+ years. Tony is currently under medical care which is very costly, and our health insurance refuses to cover most of it. I am asking for help to continue getting him the care that he desperately needs. All donations are greatly appreciated, and will go only toward his care!

Most of all, we are asking for your prayers!

Thank you in advance!
Sunshine Brown

UPDATE from Sunshine Brown -1/20/19

It has been almost a year since Tony became seriously ill. I have decided to share more details with you all, as we very much need your prayers and support.

In January of 2018, Tony began having a series of mini strokes. In April, he had a brain bleed, which has left him non - verbal, immobile, and on a feeding tube. He has made a little progress...He smiles, laughs, says a few words, has started eating soft foods, and understands some things. But the extent of his recovery is uncertain, at this point. He receives around the clock skilled nursing care. Our insurance will not cover the cost of most of his care.

This has been a very trying time, but our faith has not [sic] waivered.

We ask for your continued prayers and support, and we are so appreciative!

God bless you all!
Love always,
Sunshine Brown

  1. Tony Brown has touched my heart and my soul in so many ways. He was a phenomenal dj. I want to thank him for providing his audience with great music. He knew what music to play at the right time. I thank MiMi as well. She too, knew exactly what to do to keep WDAS mature listeners satisfied. As for Mr. Colon, I am not pleased. In my opinion, the music he plays is more appealing to the younger generation. The generation who has no idea what good music is. I am trying my best to remain a loyal listener, but I am not pleased at all.
    I wish Mr and Mrs. Brown the best, and again. Thank you Mr. Brown.


  2. Thanks Toney,and the universe for sharing that awesome voice that kept me mesmerized, I spent many Midnight's ushering in my birthday with you and thanking God 🙏 as you reminded us to do, Brown in space kept my imagination reeling, Thanks for the memories, I'LL always love you,God bless you

  3. Tony, I finally found the song I wrote you about long ago " Before You Break My Heart " by Gene Dunlap.
