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.

Charlamagne Says People Don't Like Kamala Harris Because She is a "Light-Skinned" A.K.A.

There is no doubt that Vice Presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris will gained much support from the Divine Nine. (The 9 Black College fraternities and sororities organizations.) Harris, a Howard University graduate, is a AKA, Alpha Kappa Alpha.

However there is a vocal portion of the African American community that is not in support of Kamala Harris. The Breakfast Club host Charlamagne tha god "speculated" the reason is because of the sorority she is a member of...however DJ Envy and guest Revolt TV's Eboni K. Williams disagreed. Quite passionately. (Eboni's Skee-Wee was pretty bad.)

Clearly Charlamagne that is not the issue. 

Sen. Harris may need to make a follow up appearance on The Breakfast Club now that she is the Vice Presidential nominee to address some issues that are not talked about in the mainstream news shows on MSNBC or CNN. (It's almost beyond mainstream [White] media's consciousness. Try talking to them about Frankie Beverly, Anita Baker, or spades. Blank stare.)

Here are some comments from YouTube:

The fact that they’re even trying to deflect & reduce the pushback against Harris to make it seem like some trivial “light-skin AKA sorority” issue is laughable and intellectually dishonest....

I love how Charlemagne tryna change the narrative.. Kamala being an AKA is not why A LOT of people(black people) don't like Kamala

This is called not using your platform for good.

It’s not because she’s an AKA we just don’t like her past record. Hell I have friends that are AKA’s that said they don’t want to vote for her because of her record...

She grew up in a indian house hold ate indian food
