Comedian J. Anthony Brown was part of the Tom Joyner Morning Show for 20 years. It was announced Monday that he would no longer be part of the show. In a video, Brown told his fans there are two things you should know about radio. He said radio is a lot of fun and you are not allowed to say goodbye. Brown said he was supposed to be on the show Monday through Wednesday this week but was told not to come on. Brown will continue to do his two-hour weekend show, which is heard in 10 markets.
You may recall back in January Brown walked off the show and said he was quitting.
Here’s the statement from Reach Media which syndicates the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “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.”
