December 1, 2015 at 12:07 PM (PT)
RADIO ONE-owned REACH MEDIA, syndicator of the TOM JOYNER Morning Show, refuted a U. K. DAILY MAIL.COM report that JOYNER would be forced out of his job at the end of 2016 to coincide with Pres. OBAMA leaving office.
REACH MEDIA VP/Affiliate Relations MELODY TALKINGTON issued the following statement to all affiliates:
"Any stories that suggest major changes to the TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW are inaccurate. TOM JOYNER is under contract with REACH MEDIA until the end of 2017. We expect that REACH will continue to syndicate TOM’s show beyond that date and for as long as he would like to be on the air. There has always been refinements and updates to the show as well as market changes due to local conditions, and there may be some in the future; but TOM JOYNER and the TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW continues to be strong and is a daily Party with a Purpose®. REACH is committed to TOM JOYNER for the long term, who remains committed to radio, his audience and the future."
