According to the New York Daily News, Steve Harvey is paying rival Tom Joyner back for encouraging listeners to come back to his show if they were disappointed with Harvey.
Harvey, whose reputation has been on a rocky road over the last month is said to have recently hired J Anthony Brown after his departure from the Tom Joyner show in Jan. This is very likely since Harvey is moving a majority of his operation to Los Angeles where Brown is based. In addition, it makes sense because Brown, who is well established with the urban morning show audience, would probably fill in for Harvey when he’s not able to be on the show.
The Steve Harvey Morning Show will be relocating to Los Angeles in May and is broadcast over. Tom Joyner is currently rotating comics on the morning show as a replacement or J Anthony Brown.
