There is a scathing story posted in the Daily Mail which is a UK news source, stating that Tom Joyner is being booted out of the radio industry at the same time as President Obama leaving the white house causing an early retirement for Tom. The story states that Radio One, the now majority owner of Reach Media wants to replace Tom with younger talent. We talked to Reach Media and they deny the story is true and they state the reporter Ryan Perry, the west coast correspondent, never contacted them or returned calls for any of the information posted.
After reading the story myself I can verify that Mr. Perry certainly has keen sources within the industry as well as either Reach Media or Radio One. I don’t agree that all of the information is accurate. What I know is the show is scheduled to go through 2017 when Tom’s contract ends and a renewal is in order instead of 2016 which the story states. In addition, I have never heard Russ Parr would replace Tom IF he left his show. That’s all I can say for now.
