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.

Grammy-Award Winning Publisher and Radio Mogul, Cherry Martinez Offers Free Commercials to Minority-Owned Businesses in Light of Global Coronavirus Pandemic

The New York-based Afro-Latina founder of FMHipHop will provide air-time for businesses in need of advertising as a result of the effects of COVID-19

Legendary New York radio DJ and media personality, Cherry Martinez announced today that she will provide free radio commercials for minority-owned businesses negatively affected by the novel coronavirus.

The advertisements will be featured on her 24/7 radio show, FMHipHop.com, the growing destination for hip-hop, trap and R&B news, culture and music. The spots will also be syndicated on the show's other streaming sites, TuneIn and Aha Radio, completely charge-free.

FMHipHop is providing free radio commercials for minority-owned businesses negatively affected by the novel coronavirus. Charge free, chosen ads will run for 90's days, on FM's 24/7 radio show; also syndicated on the show's other streaming sites, TuneIn and Aha Radio. To enter: Follow us on Instagram @FMHipHop, repost this video to your Instagram page, tag 5 minority business owners, and email us a 30 sec MP3 audio commercial!

This philanthropy initiative comes at a crucial time for minority-owned businesses who, as a result of the virus, have been hit hard: In two recent surveys, only 12% of Black and Hispanic business owners reported that they received funding they had requested and 45% of minority business owners reported that they expect to permanently shut down in the next six months.

"We know that many budding entrepreneurs and small businesses would benefit from any type of promotion during this pandemic-induced economic shutdown," explains Martinez. "This is my community and I want to help as much as I can."

To participate, minority business owners across the U.S. are instructed to follow @FMHipHop on Instagram, like & share their post about this initiative and tag 5 businesses. Once complete, business-owners can head to FMHipHop.com for specific details on how to submit their 30-second radio advertisement.
