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.

Ben Simmons No Show at Training Camp: KRON4 Sports Anchor Jason Dumas Calls Out 97.5 The Fanatic Mike Missanelli for Capping

Today is Media Day across the NBA as teams introduce their new and returning players to their fans via media interviews and photo sessions. However one team, the Philadelphia 76ers will have one key player missing. That player is Ben Simmons who will not be reporting to the team amid trade rumors throughout the off season. 

In fact trade rumors and Simmons' next destination or lack thereof has been the number one story during the NBA off season. Sports talk show host Mike Missanelli of 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia has had enough of the rumors and the takes on social media and sports blogs. He went on an epic rant in earshot of his producer Tyrone Johnson on a number of sports reporters including...  JASON DUMAS!!! WHOEVER HE IS?

His rant was directed towards KRON4 San Francisco Bay Area sports anchor Jason Dumas. Now why would Dumas have any relevant information regarding Ben Simmons?

Dumas is well connected to the situation with Simmons and his agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports. He's been pretty accurate with the NBA news and information he tweets out on the NBA . (However the idea of organized groups booing Ben Simmons at training camp seems a little far-fetched even for Philly fans.).

Dumas went to Twitter and said Misanelli knows who he is and accused him of capping. Dumas as it turns out says he worked as a summer intern at a sports station Missanelli was working at while he was in college. 

Dumas was born and raised in Philadelphia who just so happens to work in San Francisco and grew up a Sixers fan. Dumas was in Philadelphia last week to cover the Eagles vs. 49ers football game. 

Do we have to explain what capping is?
