Tom Joyner Denies Being Forced Into Early Retirement
Is legendary media personality and radio host Tom Joyner being forced into an early retirement?? According to Daily Mail Online the iconic DJ is being kicked off the air to make way for a younger radio host.
Daily Mail Online can reveal the 65-year-old entertainment veteran is being forced into an early retirement to not only make room for younger talent but also to coincide with the departure of President Barack Obama from the White House.
The plan is being put into place by radio conglomerate Radio One along with his best friend and former business associate David Kantor, sources claim.
‘They think going with a younger, fresher show is the way to go and the entire plan has been orchestrated by the man who actually launched Tom into syndication originally,’ a source tells Daily Mail Online exclusively.
Source claims plan is to phase Joyner out of radio to line up with President Barack Obama leaving White House but the decision to get rid of Joyner was made by former business associate and best friend David Kantor, reveals source.
Radio One plans to move syndicated host Russ Parr, 56, into Joyner’s time slots in Washington, DC and Baltimore starting in January.
‘Tom isn’t ready to go and hasn’t even made plans for life after radio. Radio is his passion and it’s all he knows.’
Tom Joyner took to his Twitter account to fire shots at the allegations and says don’t believe you read on the internet…
Do you think it’s time for Tom to step aside for a new host or nah?
