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 Jen & Jhas Show' Heads Up Mornings on 92.9 The Wave

Monday, June 10th marks the debut of “The Jen & Jhas Show” on 92.9 The
WAVE (WVBW) Norfolk/Virginia Beach. Jen Lewis moves from middays to mornings to team up with Jhas Williams-Wood, who ironically comes from 97.1 The Wave in Ocean City, Maryland and Eagle 97.7 where she co-hosted mornings for several years, for 92.9 The WAVE’s first all-female morning show.

Jen spent 19 years at 97.3 The Eagle/WGH-FM where she co-hosted the popular “Jimmy Ray
and Jen Morning Show.” In 2015, Jen transitioned to television as she joined the #1 morning team on WAVY TV10/Fox 43. She made her return to radio in March of this year as the midday host for the WAVE. Jen is a Hampton Roads native and lives in Virginia Beach with her husband-Keith, daughterAnnaLise, horse-Perry, dog-Billy and cat-Tink.

“Just when I thought my morning show days were over, I met Jhas. She’s a bright, talented and beautiful woman. I can’t wait for the 92.9 The Wave listener family to get to know her. I’m also looking forward to breaking ground on a female-driven show. Count on it being fun, thoughtful and informative,” commented Mrs. Lewis.

Jhas Williams-Wood was born and raised in New Jersey, just 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia. She spent 2 years studying acting on a scholarship to the Academy of Dramatic Arts in the heart of Los Angeles, California. Upon returning to the East Coast, she realized that radio and serving the people were her true love. She’s discovered her voice not only on the radio, but also in the form of freelance writing for various online publications such as ESSENCE and Rantt Media.

She’s also a dog mom to her 3-year-old Jack Russell named Fancy.

“I’m so looking forward to becoming a part of Max Media’s family and beyond grateful for the opportunity to be welcomed into the homes and cars of our listener friends,” remarked
Ms. Williams-Wood.

92.9 The WAVE’s new weekday lineup:
5:30am-10am The Jen & Jhas Show
