Here’s an update on the situation…
“I want to thank all the listeners and fans for embracing me for more than 20 years on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. You were a captive audience, and your support and feedback encouraged me to be a better comic and a better social commentator, reflecting the world around us,” said Brown. “I am eternally grateful to Tom Joyner and the morning crew for the years of friendship and laughs, in sickness and in health. I thank you for the opportunity to showcase my talents, and allowing me to have a voice on morning radio.”
According to AllAccess.com, Brown’s manager Sharavious Jackson says “the show is looking in a new direction. J. is open to new opportunities.”
Reach Media also releases a statement.
“J. Anthony Brown has been a great contributor and a part of the Joyner Morning Show (TJMS) family for many years. J’s current contract was set to expire at the end of 2016. J requested to be released from his contract a month early, and we agreed to his request. We appreciate all that J has done for the TJMS and wish him the best in the future.
To continue the excellence in entertainment that the TJMS is known for, the show will feature top, live comedic and celebrity talent to serve as co-hosts on a rotating basis until a permanent decision is made.”
J. Anthony Brown says good bye on social media since the radio show would not allow him to do so.
