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.

Lady B Returns to Philly Radio on Classix 107.9

Lady B is coming back to radio and starting Monday, February 11th. She will be on middays from 9am-3pm Monday-Thursday. She will team up with DJ Touchtone with the return of the BASEMENT PARTY on Friday and Saturday nights from 6-10 pm on Classix 107.9.

Radio One Philadelphia having recently launched Classix 107.9 will make Lady B, their first on-air hire after the transition from Praise 107.9. The station now plays Classic R&B from the 70's and 80's. Lady B had exited Radio One Philly a little over a year ago in December 2017 on 100.3 WRNB as afternoon host. She was replaced by The D.L. Hughley Show.

Urban One/Radio One's VP/Programming Colby Colb Tyner said, “Philly is known for cheesesteaks, pretzels, the Eagles, and Lady B.  She is one of the most dynamic voices the city has ever had.  She is beloved and the city we are excited to have her back in the Radio One family.”

Lady B added, “I'm so blessed, excited, and appreciative that our voice is coming back to the airwaves.”
