Please join us in saluting him for 45 years of dedicated service in broadcasting, and to the community. Thank you to all of his listeners over the years. He was so dedicated to bringing you the best! He did what he loved, and he loved what he did! We ask for your continued prayers and support, and we are so appreciative! Much love, Sunshine Brown"

There has been no official statement from the management of WDAS or iHeartMedia, the corporate owner of WDAS. As of last week Tony's voice is still a part of the intro segment of The Quiet Storm, heard each evening at 7:00 PM. It's been over a year since Tony has been behind the microphone. Veteran WDAS FM personality Mi Mi Brown has been hosting The Quiet Storm, in wake of Tony's absence.

Tony began his professional radio career at WDAS FM in the mid 1970's with a program called "The Extra Sensory Connection," a forerunner to The Quiet Storm. He went over to rival at the time, Power 99 FM WUSL and hosted late nights. When the two stations became owned by the same company, Tony returned to WDAS FM, to host the early evening slow jams program.

Gayle King and Charles Barkley are finalizing a deal that would have them jointly lead a primetime hour each week on CNN, according to people familiar with the matter and multiple news sources. The pact is not complete and there is always the risk it may not come to fruition, one of these people says. CNN declined to make executives available for comment.

Tavis Smiley owned Los Angeles talk station KBLA Talk 1580 donated $20,000 in scholarship money to the NABJLA and MPJI. Smiley says, “The National Association of Black Journalists of Los Angeles and the Minority Photo-Journalism Institute are making a tangible difference in our community by helping students pursue careers in journalism and communications. KBLA ‘Talk 1580’ strongly believes in enlightening, empowering and encouraging tomorrow’s reporters, editors and potential talk radio hosts. Hopefully, our scholarships make a difference.”

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
