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.

Daughter of Morning Host Rickey Smiley Shot Over the Weekend in Houston

Rickey Smiley shared with his audience this morning that his daughter Aaryn Smiley was shot multiple times in Houston over the holiday weekend. She was on her way to get food at a Whataburger restaurant.

Rickey said during Gary’s Tea segment that Aaryn, who is currently in the hospital recovering, is well and she will have to undergo surgery. He also stated that he wasn't going to mention it because she was in stable condition in Houston. The other members of the show were unaware of the incident due to everyone working remotely due to COVID-19. He is making arrangements to fly from Birmingham to Dallas and taking the 3 1/2 hour drive to Houston to be with his daughter.

The Rickey Smiley Morning Show is syndicated on many Radio ONE Adult R&B stations through Reach Media.
