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.

KYW Newsradio 1060 Unveils New Logo and Jingle

The New Jingle from Jay-Z, John Legend, The Roots, Jill Scott, and Justin Timberlake Musical Strings Producer

Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., unveiled a brand refresh initiative for iconic Philadelphia station KYW Newsradio (KYW-AM). The news station, which has been serving the region with “All News, and All that Matters to You” for 53 years, unveiled a bold new logo and brand identity to reflect its multiplatform growth and evolution. As part of the refresh, the station, in partnership with legendary arranger and Philadelphia native Larry Gold, introduced a modern update to its beloved jingle.

“KYW Newsradio has evolved into a modern news organization serving a wide range of listeners across various platforms and we are proud to introduce visual and audio enhancements that reflect who the station is today,” said David Yadgaroff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Philadelphia. “The station is a local treasure that remains an integral part of the city and to honor those roots, we worked with hometown artists to capture its essence and develop the refreshed brand identity. Everyone in town sings our jingle and we’re thrilled to introduce this new contemporary sound.”

To capture the station’s unique sound and revamp the iconic musical branding, KYW worked with Larry Gold, who has worked with The Roots, Jay-Z, and John Legend, among others. The KYW Newsradio “anthem,” featuring local string musicians, was recorded in Center City Philadelphia and produced by Man Made Music, who has worked with iconic brands like Nissan, NBC, Paramount and The Coca-Cola Company. Accomplished film and stage actress Deidre Goodwin will be the voice of the station.

“I’m a local boy. The roots of Philadelphia are hard to lose, and KYW is part of my roots,” said Gold.

--There is quite a difference in the new logos introduced by Entercom to KYW, WCBS (New York), and KCBS (San Francisco) all-news stations. They have removed any resemblance to the logos that were used at the stations once owned by the Westinghouse Company and CBS Radio. Look for New York's All News 1010 WINS to get a make over next.
