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.

Longtime D.C. News Anchor Shawn Yancy Tearfully Says Goodbye to FOX 5 News

What's going on at WTTG FOX 5 in Washington, D.C.? Veteran news anchor Shawn Yancy departed the station on Thursday. She offered a tearful goodbye to DMV television viewers. She is moving on to the next chapter in her career without specifically mentioning any future plans. This comes on the heels of the departure of Allison Seymour on the FOX 5 morning news program. Allison also hosted the afternoon show on 96.3 WHUR with husband Marc Clarke. She like Shawn had worked at FOX 5 for 19 years. This goodbye is eerily similar to Allison's last broadcast back in August. Check out that post and the Twitter reaction below. People will wonder. Within a month two popular Black female anchors have left FOX 5 supposedly as a result of their own choice. 

(Notice the Karen moment below...Did she say she drove to Pittsburgh to check out Shawn Yancy on TV before her arrival in D.C.? Did anybody ask her to do that?)

Again viewers want to know, what's going on?
