This morning Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS) vet comedian J Anthony Brown walked out of the LA recording studio where he does the show and stated “I'm Quitting.” Brown is still under contract with Reach Media (Tom Joyner and Radio One's company) so the company is trying to set up a meeting to resolve the issue.  Radio Facts has obtained audio of the exchange.  Here is J Anthony Brown quitting the Tom Joyner Morning Show (TJMS) . This was all done during a break off the air.

What's Next for Tom Joyner Show?

  1. I can’t say I blame J. Anthony Brown. If others have gotten more salary, and a new addition is expected to come in and make more than a tenured personality, then I would walk as well. Negotiations should be in order, or the plan was to release him anyway. Why put off the inevitable?

      • Really? Well, then, how should someone quit? And why should they quit that way? Business interactions should not always be responded to professionally. There are some instances in various encounters in life in which people should respond the way the spirit moves them. Subscribing to the accepted behavior for quitting is for people who need a job. People that give two week notices are usually people that need a job and need references for future jobs. People that have significant means quit when they want to and how they want to. It is relative. I say, you should be respectful if you can…if the situation allows you to. But, there is nothing wrong with saying, “I have had enough. I am leaving”, and leaving immediately. This whole corporate structure has made people emotionally and spiritually suppressing. Now, if you need a job, quit professionally. If God moves you to quit any way other than the accepted professional way…well, I suppose you should do what your relationship with God tells you to do. Your quitting the way you quit may be bigger than you.

      • You control your destiny. You dont quit the PC way. If you arw treated unfairly put it where it belongs. This brother has dobe great rhings for a lot of struggling people. He has more than paid his dues. There is a way to treat people. You dont quit cute or nice…id you are displeased be the man J Anthony Brown is and say ao…like he did.

      • Quitting without an additional
        Job in place isn’t smart at all. I believe that he had been thinking of leaving prior to abruptly leaving and pouting his way out of the building . Surely he’s smarter than that..

      • He want on air….he didn’t curse any one out…..and he damn sure dolt have to give a 2wks notice…….so tell us MS. PROFESSIONALLY JOB QUITTER…..how was he supposed to quit???? Its always a clown trying to be seen to go against the grain and try to make someone look so horrible….that man didn’t do anything out of line…he simply quit a job that was not treating him fairly.

        THAT’S J ANTHONY BROWN…..HE SHOULD BE PAID THE HIGHES AFTER TOM JOYNER…..J. MAKES THE SHOW….WE CAN GET NEWS AND UPDATES FROM OTHER STATIONS, BC THEY ALL DO THE SAME.

        JUST PICK A PLANE AND HAVE SEVERAL SEATS PLEASE…..THANK YOU

  2. Sad to see him go, but apparently he wasn’t being appreciated and taken seriously. That much is evident by the laughter and not taking his words seriously. And if there are deals in play that exclude him, whether financially or otherwise then why not beat them to the punch and walk. I would rather walk than to have it out there that I was ‘let go’. Personally I find him funnier at times than Tom Joyner, I understand that Tom is the headliner of the show, but his pay should be comparable seeing as how he brings much to the show himself. Hate to see him leave.

  3. Jay made the show! I can’t stand Huggy. He’s not funny. I turn the station when his segment comes on. I’m not a big Chris Paul fan either. He’s kinda corny to me. Guess I’ll be switching to Rickey Smiley in the Morning.

  4. I want be listening anymore either. I listened because of “J”. I saw “J” at the Essence Festival selling his Barbecue sauce and asked him if he liked Sybil or if he just tolerated her. “J’s” comments were ” she’s a pain in the Azz”.
