Originally posted Jan 13, 2016. Remember when J. Anthony Brown quit the on the air?

Sources have informed RadioFacts that comedian has exited his longstanding post with the Tom Joyner Morning show. Brown, according to sources is allegedly upset about the pay and another new syndicated host getting a larger salary from Reach Media….

Today J. Anthony Brown surprised Tom Joyner , and the production staff of the Tom Joyner Morning Show with the following:

After the end of the first break, at 6:10am CT, the hour the following exchanged occurred –

ON AIR – 6:10 am

(Tom Joyner taking the show to break)

Tom Joyner : Ten, ten past the hour

OFF AIR

Tom Joyner : Player, you feel alright?

J. Anthony Brown: Huh?

Tom Joyner : You feel alright today?

J. Anthony Brown: No, I don’t feel good. Uh, in fact I’m quitting. I’m quitting today. (laughter from Tom and Sybil) You guys can have it, man. I’ve had enough of this, seriously. Bye

(more laughter from Tom and Sybil)

Sybil Wilkes: (chucking) Bye? What’s the matter?

Tom Joyner : I don’t know. Did he just cut the mic? Player?…Player?

Off air Tom asked if J. Anthony Brown was alright. J. responded the he was not and that he was “quitting.” Both Tom and Sybil responded with laughter followed by J. Anthony Brown saying he was serious and no further response.

After several tries to reconnect with Brown, Tom Joyner attempted to reach out to him in both a personal and professional way ending with all surprised that he had actually left the studio.

IT’S TIME FOR SOME NEW TALENT.
THE SHOW IS BORING, IT’S THE SAME STUFF EVERYDAY.
IF YOU BRING SOME FRESH TALENT IN, YOU MAY GET SOME
NEW LISTENERS.
JAY IS PROBABLY SICK AND TIRED OF SYBIL EMBARRASSING HIM
ON THE SHOW. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT SHE IS EDUCATED.SHE LIKES
TO MAKE HIM FEEL SMALL.
IT’S TIME FOR HER TO GO AND WORK WITH TAVIS.

One thing I know is that the show is not boring, as well as funny its informative and challenging it inspires me as well as other individuals to contribute to their (the show) core values “Party with a purpose” and as for “J” and Sybil that gag has been running since day one…….and believe me they know how to run a gag which this might as well be, so one thing for sure we will do one thing…………Stay tuned!!

Wow, we should be supporting each other. There are enough of other people dissing we as a people without our help. I’m glad you can still get the TJM Show, because we don’t get any of the syndicated Black Radio shows in our area any more, because the racist town I live in, in the CNY area were cancelled in our area. Not because they weren’t popular, but for the simple fact that show like the TJM Show, The Michael Baisden show, and there was one other popular Black Radio show on, but they all got cancelled because they were keeping the black community informed about what was going on in the black community around the country, because the less informed we are, the more complacent we become, and not cause trouble like they feel the Black Lives Matter protesters are doing. So I stopped listening to the radio completely since they removed all the black radio stations from us receiving them in my area. But they forget that we are not stupid people, they forget, we can still hear the programs via the internet. A lot more black homes have computers and access to the internet than what the media is reporting, so they are not keeping us from being informed, like we were when the TJM show, and I think Michael Baisden show is how the black community learned about the Jena 6 boys from Jena, Louisiana. So don’t knock these black radio shows, because we may not appreciate the music, or their side kicks are permanent guests on the show, buts more important is that we stay informed. Be blessed.

That show is anything but boring! In my eyes, it’s the best show out there. Been listening to them for years!! Still a fan! They crack jokes, but no they don’t act just plain silly. And I’m glad that they don’t. They discuss real issues and professionally cover the news each morning. Tom, J, and Sybil make a great team. Can’t replace neither one of those three. If the team breaks up, I’m out.

Angie Britt January 14, 2017 at 6:22 pm

Yes. I agree. She has a nasty habit of always trying to correct not only J. Anthony Brown, but Tom too at times. Yes, by now everyone who listens to this show knows she’s educated, and I’m all for people being educated, but it’s like she just takes it too far. Things sometimes said incorrectly that were meant to be funny, she just spoils it with her “correctness”. I stopped listening to the show because of her. She’s too fake for me and it really comes through every time she opens her mouth or starts with that fake laugh. Yes, maybe she needs to go be with Tavis or somebody that’s on her “level”.

I’m surprised it took this long! Tom Joyner allowed his so called friend Kantor to talk him into selling his company. Tom did it and now the white boy Kantor has the top spot. Tom’s alleged retirement was orchestrated. I personally think Tom confided in Kantor during that last divorce, called himself hiding money so Donna wouldn’t wipe him out and the white boy screwed him royally with no Vaseline! And to now be going to an AM station is unbelievable.

Jay is actually the BEST part of the whole show. Joyner is outdated but with his relationship with Jay, he remained fresh. Sybil is just the average news anchor. She does her job well but there’s nothing particularly stand out about her, or that anyone else couldn’t do, except when she and Jay cut up. Jay is the nucleus for that show. You can bring on other comedians but it’s the rapport that Jay has with Joyner and Sybil that made the show successful.

No one is perfect, Mr. Brown you have a valid point but you went about all wrong, everyone can be replaced and tomarrow is not promised. If its not broken don’t try to fix it.

Maybe Jay has political differences and thinks like many Hillary needs to be in jail for Benghazi taking down Kadhfi and he likes Trump it’s hard to say. I’m sure that it’s not about money because Tom is extremely good to his close friends. It’s not April but this is also around the same time last year when Sybil was joked about leaving

Wow! I took a couple of months off and Wew! Hey guys, I’ve been listening to the TJMS for over a decade . I wasn’t aware until now, that there was/is a conflict between the team. I must confess during the past year I’ve been alternating between TJMS and Sirius thus reason for dismay. However, here’s my 2 cent, I like the diversity and camaraderie amongst the team. I hope that they can come to some sort of concession and keep the show going. Because the jokes, the news and commentaries are interesting and keeps us informed as well as entertained. So, KEEP UP the great work you guys and try to keep the family together. God bless…

In reality it is a job, people do get fed up and burned out, just like we do on our jobs and in regular life! Public figures that work and are under a microscope all of the time, we do not know the extent of of pressure they are under: for instance Jay just doesn’t go into the bathroom to defecate, and comes out and say ” look what came out Tom i just murdered another hit” I am sure we would all be astonished about the amount of work involved,and as for workplace atmosphere and camaraderie, there is no place of employment where everyone gets along no matter how small the number, all I am saying is that,he is only flesh and blood but yet a great guy; and co-host IN MY OPINION!

Shocked and sadden by J (Hot Sauce Brown’s), departure. Been on the road with work and to finally catch up with the gang and find out J is not there?. Was quite a surprise and judging by Tom and Sybil’s tone, you can clearly tell the chemistry has left the room. They are family and family’s fight, but make up. It’s time for unity and to push aside any animosity and work this out!, you will lose ratings if he leaves. As it has happened before, with the pay dispute. Leave you’re ego’s at the door and pull it together. We only get one go round at this life, it’s full of regrets and this is one of them.

I love the Tom Joyner Show. I wake up to it and listen to it until it goes off everyday. All have a role on the show. Tom keeps the show moving, Sybil is the serious one keeps things factual and balanced, and and Jay the comedian, whose job is to be funny. All are very good at what they do. If any of the three elements are missing it’s like missing a piece of a puzzle. I pray that they work their issues out. I really love the Tom Joyner show and what it stands for in the black community especially when it comes to HBCUs.

I listen to them every morning on my way to work and I’m done after Christmas break. It’s not the same without Jay Anthony Brown. And Skip is NOT funny. He’s trying to be like Tom and is not entertaining at all. I’m going to miss you Jay Anthony Brown. Good bye TJMS show.

It’s not the same without Jay. Someone pay the man his worth and renegotiate his contract if necessary!

I love the show and really like the core co-host! The show is not the same without Jay Anthony Brown. I am really saddened and hope that they can work through those issues. We need to have some quality things persevere through time!!! It was both good entertainment and provided good information!

Jay was cool. I liked the chemistry they had. It’s like they were best friends on the air. I hope they will work things out for him.

Get some season and new talent. Love the show but the chose of music and the lack of laughter is lacking. Go back to the style of music that sounds good to your true mid age listener. The comedian you have as host are boring. Your show is going to have to find someone truly funny Sherry Sheppard is not funny. Still love your show but J was great with you & for the show. You have Big Shoes(J) to fill. Good luck

Shared facts of importance that matter to people who look like us is the true meaning of the show. The rest is just entertainment. Stay on track, stay up and pass it on to the unimformed.

J. Anthony Brown Abruptly Departs the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Unable to Say Farewell On-Air - DailyHollywoodGossip.com | DailyHollywoodGossip.com July 5, 2019 at 8:38 pm

[…] Brown “quit” mid-show in January of this year due to conflicts behind-the-scenes. However, he returned soon after. It’s unclear if the “conflicts” or his departure involves Joyner, Wilkes, or any of the other on-air personalities. […]
