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.

D.L. Hughley On the Mend From Collapse, Now Set to Self-Quarantine and Host from Home


Radio ONE Afternoon Host and Reach Media syndicated personality D.L. Hughley passed out on stage during his comedy show in Nashville Friday night. He was performing at Zanies Comedy Club and at around 11 PM is when his collapse occurred. He was taken to the hospital and unbeknown to himself, after a series of tests, he tested positive for the coronavirus.



The 57 year old comedian said, "I was what they call asymptomatic. I didn't have flu-like symptoms, I didn't have shortness of breath, I didn't have difficulty breathing, I didn't have a cough, I didn't have a low-grade fever. I still don't have a fever. I didn't have a loss of smell or taste, apparently I just lost consciousness."

"Thank you to everyone for your concern, prayers and well wishes.  Looking forward to pushing through and coming out stronger on the other side of things.  Be safe, wear your PPE and practice social distancing..."


He is out of the hospital but stated he will now have to self-quarantine in Nashville for 14 days. But the hotel in which he was staying was not in a position to accommodate him. So he flew home.

D. L. will now host his show for the next two weeks away from the Reach Media studios. The show airs in the afternoons on many of Radio One's R&B/Urban Adult Contemporary stations.
