Tom Joyner

Tom Joyner

Tom Joyner’s weekday morning radio show, themed “The Party with the Purpose,” will begin airing in Chicago again after it was dumped last month from 102.7 WVAZ-FM and replaced by Steve Harvey’s morning program.

TJMS will broadcast on SOUL 106.3FM beginning tomorrow (April 22) from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays, while the weekend program, “Right Back At Cha,” will be heard on Saturdays from 9 a.m. -11 a.m.

“Thank you Chicago, and all our friends and family from all over the country,” Joyner said in a statement. “You have spoken, you have written, you have tweeted—and your activism has made a difference in a big way! We are going back on the air and if I could hug and thank each and every one of you individually, I would. Our new home in Chicago is SOUL 106.3FM.”

Chicago was the first radio market that signed on to the Tom Joyner Morning Show when the program and its message started, eventually growing to the 115 markets it serves today, reaching approximately one in four African-Americans.

The tweet from ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith came across to his Twitter followers on Friday: “The rumors are true– ESPN and I are parting ways. My statement “Goodbye ESPN!!!”

The ESPN reporter, who once had a show on the network’s ESPN2 titled “Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith,” will officially end his tenure with the station on May 1. According to Web site, The Big Lead, Smith’s contract is due to expire after the NBA playoffs and the two parties could not reach a new agreement.

“Apparently, ESPN’s offer was considerably lower than Smith’s previous contracts – which were multi-media faceted – and Smith passed,” the Web site reported. “He was then offered the decision to work through the remainder of his contract, or walk away and still get paid, and a source says Smith decided to work.”

In a statement posted on his Web site, Smith said of his time at ESPN, “It’s been a wonderful, wonderful ride, filled with great accomplishments, great memories and, most importantly, great friendships. It’s difficult to express how appreciative I am to ESPN for all it’s done for my career. But nothing lasts forever. It’s time to move on.
