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.

Taylor Rooks Joins Bleacher Report and Turner Sports as Host/Reporter

Earlier this month Taylor Rooks announced that she was leaving her sports anchor position at (SNY) SportNet New York, a regional sports network based in New York City for greener pastures with Turner Sports and Bleacher Report. Above is one of her first interviews on the B/R platform with Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors. This segment is engaging and hilarious as both work before the camera very well.

They also talked about Kyle vs. Ky-le???

However one of Rooks' noteworthy interviews occurred last season with then New York Knicks forward Michael Beasley on SNY and her Timeout with Taylor podcast. Beasley discussed his unique theory on using a larger portion of one's brain, his unusual fashion sense, the impact of certain words in the English language. Take a look at that one below.

Taylor Rooks, a suburban Atlanta (Gwinnett County) native, previously worked at the Big Ten Network and was a sideline reporter for CBS Sports Network for the 2016-2017 football season.
