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.

Reactions to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's 'WAP' Are All Over the Place

Cardi B has the hip hop culture and it seems the entire universe talking following the release of her single 'WAP.' Here are some reactions from social media and a discussion from The Breakfast Club here and from Roland Martin, Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, and others [below].

All and all, this is a promotional event from two female rappers rather than a groundbreaking expression of art. If you take it with that perspective, it'll all be forgotten in about two weeks. Female empowerment? ....hardly.

The video is reminiscent of Halle Berry's role in the movie BAPS with Natalie Desselle.

It looks like Fox Sports 1 reporter Joy Taylor has a lot to say on the subject and actress Viola Davis approves. 👀

Others chime in on Twitter:

So should Cardi B be rapping about something else?

Ebro in the Morning asked listeners what is the most vulgar song you listened to but hid from your parents?
