T.I. & Tiny's Date Night+Steve Harvey Replaces Tom Joyner In Chicago

​ ​ ​ ​
Tom Joyner and the rest of his crew were surprised to learn when they recently came back from vacay that Steve Harvey would be replacing them in their flagship city Chicago. Steve and co. have been on at WGCI while Tom and Co. started their nationally syndicated show in Chicago at v103 and have been there for over 13 years. But ClearChannel this week moved Steve over to V103, replacing Tom. Here's Tom Joyner's statement after so many people were up in arms:
We always say that when we come back from vacation something big has either happened or is about to happen. Well, this one topped them all. After 16 years, the Tom Joyner Morning Show won’t be broadcast on a local Chicago radio station, at this time. For Sybil and me, our relationship with the Chicago radio listeners goes back more than 20 years and believe me it has not ended by any stretch of the imagination. Friends and family in the Chicago market will continue to listen to the Party with a Purpose on www.BlackAmericaWeb.com . So this isn’t the end, it’s just a change. Even though we’re heard in more than 100 markets around the country, Chicago is home, it’s the Mother Ship, the Flagship, all those words that mean it is the place that launched the TJMS. It’s where we came from and where we always could go back to. And we’re still there, just in a different way—for now! We’ve had great times in Chicago and we’ll be there soon to officially thank the thousands and thousands of you who made us what we are, and will be here with us as we take this to another level. We got where we are by knowing who you are, what you want and by Super Serving our audience, just like my mentor John H. Johnson taught me to do. This world is changing but the doing the right thing never does, and we will continue to do what we’ve always done for the African American Community.
Drama! Steve's show will broadcast on both Chicago stations until March 31st when a new morning show is introduced at WGCI.





And we've got a sneak peek at tonight's episode of T.I.'s "Road To Redemption" show. It's a clip of T.I.P. and Tiny sharing some quality time together before the Rubberband man heads to the clinker.

Tom's show was one of the

Tom's show was one of the best morning shows of all time. He is very interactive for us Steve Harvey should not be on the radio period his show is terrible they talk all morning with little music and when they do ply music its nothing you really want to listen to. Please bring back Tom he is a chicago icon. Steve Harvey is a good actor comedien but bad bad bad on the radio Please remove him ASAP.

The video with T.I. and Tiny

The video with T.I. and Tiny is too cute! I think they make a nice couple!

I have never watched TI's

I have never watched TI's show, I think its shameful for him and the shows creators/producers to play on our (black people's) feelings by using this farce of him doing good and doing whats right for the community and young black youth. Its just a way for him to make money, keep his name on the minds of his fan and attempt to win fans. Additionally, it may or will probably reduce his time. After watching that clip i'm glad I don't watch the show, its shameful. As for the change to Steve Harvey from the TJMS, I agree its all about ratings, Steve has the younger crowd and coupled with the fact that he is new and "shiny" its expected. But Steve's show is immature and silly (the show is not funny) nor is it really of benefit to anyone but Steve, Tommy and that crew. I used to listen to the show but I went back to TJMS. TJMS is the truth it really does have what we need. I know some are going to disagree and take offense but I don't care; you have your opinions and I just gave mine.

What would be cute about Tiny

What would be cute about Tiny and T.I is if he wifed her. Who has time to be playing baby daddy, baby mama roles at her age? If you are really THAT IN LOVE, then make it official! Those hood relationships are played the f**k out. I personally don't have time for the "Shorty wanna ride with me" relationships and I'm younger than him!!!

Oprah runs Chicago and since

Oprah runs Chicago and since he (Steve Harvey) was on her show she wants to listen to him in Chi-town... what Oprah says goes (I guess). Ps I am also glad that the old format is back because I could not figure out how to submit a comment to save my life!!!

lol. T.I.'s toooooooo cute.

lol. T.I.'s toooooooo cute. it's good that he doesn't put on an act infront of the camera. I've gotta say, i judged Tiny based on the pictures I've seen of her (most notably, her fahion choices) but she seems like a nice lady. cute couple.

Love that T.I. still seems to

Love that T.I. still seems to be IN LOVE w/Tiny. That's what's up. She still seems to be able to make him blush which is a great thing in a relationship. Their connection seems genuine and sincere. Love it! On another hand, Tiny...is ...interesting looking. Probably wouldn't be such a bad idea to stop buying those big ass expensive purses and INVEST in a few things like a Speech/Language Coach AND a stylist. Not for T.I. cuz he obviously loves her no matter what-which again is admirable and how it's supposed to be but for herself since she is apparently still going to be photographed and in the public eye. Just a thought.

I agree w/IOSTAR regarding

I agree w/IOSTAR regarding the topsy-turvy world of radio and its unstable nature. One minute your favorite station is a pre-set in your car the next you're scanning stations trying to find a replacement for the crap the Talent Scouts have selected! We had a phenomenal Jazz station here in Baltimore and without warning it was canceled and replaced with an all country music format. WTH! Thought I was losing my mind, kept checking my presets.. Same deal with the Big Phat morning show which has been replaced with the Rickey Smiley morning show. Ugh! Too Silly. Hate the format. SMDH.

Tiny and T.I. are TOO CUTE

Tiny and T.I. are TOO CUTE together! I'm gonna pray for them because him going to jail will make times harder than 32. I am not happy about the TJMS being replaced by Steve Harvey! Somebody need to replace Michael Baisden's talkitive self! This economy are making some industry go to drastic measures to save money. They replaced The Big Fat Morning Show here in Bmore with Rickey Smiley and these nuts! If something happens to Russ Par in DC I am going to go on a morning show strike!

We're all hoping it's WGCI

We're all hoping it's WGCI and V103s annual April Fool's Day prank. I don't know what I would do without TJMS!!!! It's the only way to get ready in the mornings.

Africans have their black on

Africans have their black on black tribal wars, and now in America for the first time we have ethnic wars. JUST ABOUT EVERYONE ON THESE BLOGS talking about Chris Brown like he is a mass murderer for DEFENDING HIMSELF, is nothing but a damn AMERICAN HATER. CARIBBEANS WANT TO TAKE ALL OF OUR JOBS, EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, AND THEY WANT TO TAKE OVER ALL OF HOLLYWOOD. THEY STAY ON BLOGS HATING ON AMERICAN ENTERTAINERS, AND MANY TIME IMPERSONATING AND LIEING LIKE THEY'RE AMERICANS. THEY DO THIS TO DIVIDE US. THEY THINK THEY'RE THE KLAN. DON'T BE FOOLED PEOPLE. THE DIRTY CARIBBEAN RIRI BECAME ENRAGED WHEN JET MAGAZINE HONORED CHRIS BROWN AS ONE OF THE 10 PEOPLE TO WATCH IN 2009, RIGHT UP THERE WITH MICHELE OBAMA. THAT'S WHY SHE SET HIM UP. KEEP THEM OUT OF YOUR LIFE, IF YOU'RE SMART.

After watching that video and the show, I will officially end my affair with TI, lol. At first I was hating on Tiny for being with him, but now i luvvvvv them together. They seem to have a real genuine relationship, not to mention funny. So there, Ms. Tiny you ca have him. He was too cute with all that blushing.

Chicago is a big market. I

Chicago is a big market. I find it pretty hard to believe that market could not sustain both the TJMS and Steve Harvey Morning Show. I live in a much smaller market in SC and we have TJMS, Steve Harvey, Russ Parr and Big Boy in the Morning. Why can't we have variety in our media choices?

Tiny may not be much to look

Tiny may not be much to look at, but I'll be damned if her and TI aren't a cute couple. She's a real bitch and a ride-or-die one at that. I like how he tried to act all 'shamed and "embarassed" like he didn't like that freaky isht she was talkin'

Tiny and TI do seem to be a

Tiny and TI do seem to be a compatible couple. Especially after watching this video. Both of them sound like two grandma's and granpa's... She talking 'bout "Thats wonderful", sounding like something I saw from a movie,but can't think of the name of it. And TI talking bout "You can't scare me with a good time".. Now they're a couple couple match made in heaven. Oh.. and sounds short. She only like 4'11.. She sounds like a 4'11 person. Almost like Lil Kim.. She has a lil baby voice in a way too. As far as part two... TI as "Chillin with his @itch todayaaay, and fenna torn her into a "Porn Star".

I can't stand Steve Harvey

I can't stand Steve Harvey and for the life of me I don't know why he is popular. Anyway, I wish Tom good luck. I personally stopped listening to all the radio stations because I got tired of all the political talk. I really do not want to hear anything from the President, the government or any of their representatives. I just want entertainment and radio shows are unable to deliver that one essential element.

Radio has changes constantly.

Radio has changes constantly. Anyone who works in radio will tell you that there really isn't any stability in it. When new management comes in your favorite R&B station can turn into a Country station. Although Tom isn't cancelled nationally it's a wake up call that you can never get too comfortable. The internet has changed the game for newspapers and magazines. Newspapers look like a CD headphone now-ancient! Radio can be listened to over the internet or in your car commercial free. We're a changing society.

I politely disagree. The

I politely disagree. The Steve Harvey Show is EXTREMELY funny. I listen to it from start to finish every day. I like the Tom Joyner Show too and was a fan for years. However, they tend to snicker and laugh at things that aren't even funny. Sometimes it's childish. I have to admit that I switched completely over to Steve Harvey after D.L. Hugley said some very hateful things about gays on the TJMS and Tom laughed like he was being tickled. I understand people have opinions, but that was as a little over the top and it wasn't funny. I am sure the gays at CNN got revenge by getting D.L.'s show canceled. Anyway, I just find Steve to be laugh out loud funny.

They really do. I guess, I stan for her, because, I'm a average looking chick, with a FINE ass boyfriend. People often wonder what he sees in me, but what they don't see is our deep conversations, the fact that I know things about him that NO other chick will EVER know. The fact that he looks past the superficial outer and loves me. The so called pretty chicks, walk past or try to holla at them but guess what he ain't checking for them. It tears people up that sometimes us "normal" or not so model like chicks can pull the FINE brotha's as well.
