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.

Dyana Williams Talks Black Music Month with The Breakfast Club



Dyana Williams talks with Angela Yee and DJ Envy about the power of Black Music, the National Museum Of African American Music which will be located in Nashville. ( Nashville? Dyana explains why this city was chosen), and much more.

During the interview Angela Yee asked Dyana Williams about her start in radio. Below is an aircheck of Dyana from 1973 at 96.3 WHUR on the evening show as host 'Ebony Moonbeams.' Her show was the precursor to The (Original) Quiet Storm. From there she went to 107.5 WBLS in 1975 as an on-air personality in her hometown of New York City. She settled in the Philadelphia area in 1980 and hosted programs on 105.3 WDAS FM and began her trek as one of the founders of Black Music Month along with one of the most important mentors in Black music artist development and media coaching.



The National Museum of African American Music will be a 56,000-square-foot facility that will encourage visitors to discover the central role African Americans have played in shaping and creating all genres of American music. From classical to country to jazz and hip hop, NMAAM will integrate history and interactive technology to share the untold story of more than 50 music genres and sub-genres. It will be an unparalleled institution, unconfined by record label, genre or recording artist, and tell a unique narrative through the lens of Black music.
