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.

Philly’s Favor 100.7 NEW Gospel FM station in Philadelphia Launches

JAMJACKJR ENTERPRISES, LLC. is proud to announce that it will sign on its new gospel radio station. Philly’s Favor 100.7 “Working for His Favor Every Day” will launch on June 8, 2020 and will broadcast on 100.7 FM and WJBR HD-3. In addition to the Philadelphia frequency, 100.7 Philly’s Favor will also be available to stream online and on the app.

The brain child of JAMJACKJR ENTERPRISES, LLC. president and Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan A. Mason, Sr., Philly’s Favor was designed to uplift the community and inspire positive change. The format will feature inspirational music and gospel hits highlighting artists such as Marvin Sapp, Kirk Franklin, Kanye West, Fred Hammond, Travis Greene, Kierra Sheard and Anthony Brown.

Bringing the gospel format back to the FM signal, Philly’s Favor will have a stellar line up with some of gospel’s leading talent.  Gospel Music Legend and TV Host Bobby Jones will start the morning off from 5:00am – 6:00am.  Followed by The Dee Lee Show from 6:00am - 9:00am and The Bishop Mary Show featuring Philadelphia’s own Archbishop Mary Floyd Palmer from 10:00am –3:00pm. Grammy Award Winner, Bishop Hezekiah Walker 3:00pm to 7:00pm will round out the day.

Aligning with the company’s commitment to serve the community, Philly’s Favor will launch the station with a local food giveaway, feeding 500 families in the Philadelphia area.  The food distribution will be an ongoing station initiative in order to combat the food shortage as a result of the pandemic.

The station will be programmed by veteran radio executive Ken Johnson who most recently served as the Vice President of Urban Programming for Cumulus Media.

"I truly believe in the JAMJACKJR ENTERPRISES’ mission to uplift and serve the community,” says Program Director Ken Johnson. “Given the current political and social climate I couldn’t think of a better time to launch this station.”

“With a pandemic gripping the nation, unemployment at depression level highs and social unrest causing violence in cities large and small, I think we can all agree that our land is in need of healing,” Jonathan Mason, President and CEO of JAMJACKJR ENTERPRISES LLC says.  “It is with that thought in mind that we have decided to launch Philly’s Favor 100.7 FM. “

Philly’s Favor will be a 24-hour Gospel FM station in Philadelphia, playing a mix of contemporary and traditional gospel music.
