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.

Breland Moore Heads Home as New Sports Anchor at Fox 29 Philadelphia

Breland Moore is joining Fox 29 (WTXF) Philadelphia as a sports anchor for the station’s weekday 5, 6, 10, and 11 p.m. newscasts. The Temple University grad will also host Sports Sunday and anchor the Eagles pregame show Game Day during the NFL season. She replaces Kristen Rodgers.

“Breland is Temple proud, but Philly made!” said VP and news director Jim Driscoll. “We welcome her back to the best sports town in America, where the fans will love her passion as much as they love their teams.”

Moore last worked at KCTV in Kansas City as a sports anchor. She’s also worked at WHEC in Rochester, N.Y.

“No matter where this job led me, I’ve always hoped for a full circle journey to bring me back to Philadelphia,” Moore said. “I’m ready to return to the city that raised and educated me so I can cover the very teams and athletes that inspired me to get into this profession in the first place.”
