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.

Deja Vu of 107.5 WBLS Lands Syndication Deal on Urban AC Radio

The Deja Vu Show, featuring the top-rated afternoon host on New York’s WBLS-FM, has launched into syndication. In her new show for Urban AC music formats, Deja Vu will provide female listeners a mixture of entertainment, lifestyle, and positive affirmation. Deja is a speaker, author, philanthropist, and lifestyle expert who delivers a new experience to Urban radio.

Below Deja interviews Wendy Williams. Wendy's last regular radio gig was hosting the afternoon drive show, "The Wendy Williams Experience" on WBLS, which by the way was also syndicated. That show brought attention to Wendy's talent nationally as well as helped bring the talents of Charlamagne tha God to the forefront to media executives and listeners in NYC and the nation too. But since Wendy left radio for her television show in 2009, Deja Vu has been the most steady and consistent on-air personality to host afternoons at the station.

The Jacksonville, Florida native is also heard daily on Sirius/XM’s The Heat.

“Deja brings a contagious energy to the midday format,” said Steve Jones, Vice President and General Manager, ABC Radio. “Deja is a proven ratings winner who will have immediate and measurable impact for her new affiliates.”

I’m so excited Deja’s talents can now be experienced in every radio market in America.”
