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.

Tamron Hall Salutes Soledad O'Brien at Harlem United Boulevard Bash


Harlem United, a nationally-recognized, community-focused healthcare, housing and human services provider serving New Yorkers and beyond, celebrated its 30th year anniversary with an 80’s themed gala, Boulevard Bash, in New York City at the Low Memorial Library at Columbia University.


Hosted by media maven, Bevy Smith, Harlem United presented award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien with the Community Champion Award in recognition of her outstanding leadership and tireless efforts to empower our youth, and address social justice by bringing to the forefront narratives that affect underserved communities.

Introduced by colleague, friend and esteemed journalist, Tamron Hall, O’Brien took the stage to declare her continued commitment to being a voice for the voiceless to raise awareness, but more so, with the hope that the awareness can make a difference.

Former White House AIDS Advocate under the Obama Administration and current Gilead Sciences Senior Community Service Engagement Director, Douglas Brooks, was also honored with the Community Impact Award recognizing his commitment to being a catalyst to changing HIV/AIDS awareness across the nation.

After the formal awards dinner, Hip Hop Icon Doug E. Fresh took to the stage and got the crowd moving with his some of his greatest hits.
