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.

The original Party with a Purpose® is setting sail on an epic 20th Voyage! The 2019 Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage® presented by Denny’s will sail from Miami April 7-14 on the Carnival Magic and make stops in the Caribbean’s Amber Cove, San Juan and St. Thomas.

Music superstars including Janet Jackson, Maxwell, Charlie Wilson, Fantasia, KEM, and more will headline a jam-packed entertainment lineup.

“It has been an honor for Denny’s to be a part of this great work with the Tom Joyner Foundation for almost two decades,” said Denny’s President and CEO John Miller. “When we invest in our students, we know we are investing in the future.”

The Fantastic Voyage® has uniquely become one of the most talked about and sought-after events in the country. Developed upon realizing the needs of African-American cruisers were not being met, Joyner combined his purpose with entertainment (something done daily on his morning show) and came up with the idea to sell cabins at a premium rate to get a superior experience and underwrite HBCUs. By specifically catering to his audience/passengers through ALL activities, media, and even food and beverage, Joyner created an exclusive event that sells out annually and features an exciting lineup of activities and famed entertainers.
